Hey. The Toray Pan Pacific event, that TIER 1 in Tokyo with the
glamourous hotel press/media/party opening has Venus as
entered.

So, far the official entry list is as follows. This is the
tournament right after the AO.

1) LD
2) Jen*
3) Elena D
4) Chanda Rubin
5) Ai
6) VENUS
7) Nadia P.
8) Jelena d
9) Meg S.
10) Daniela
11) Anna Smashnova-P
12) Lisa Raymond
13) Lina K
14) Maggie
15) Maria Sharapova
16) Tatiana Panova
17) Tammy T
18) Alicia Molik
19) Elena Likhovetseva
20) F. Zuluaga
21) Katarina Srebotnik

*Jenn will most likely not be there for the same reasons as not
playing the AO. The tournament organizers are gunning to get
Justine in the draw as a late entry.

Has Jen officially withdrawn from the Aus Open ?
Venus might have that special seeding thing at Tokyo like at the AusOpen, if she ends up playing.

Yeah. Off course. The local station is finally showing the SEAT OPEN
2003 because Kim and Maria are in it. I think the HK exhibition
might take a while here. :p

Doesn't Venus get the special ranking for the first couple of tournaments. Lindsay did a couple years ago. Why are people so shocked that Venus got it. It's not like the OZ organizers had the seeds out the week that Serena withdrew. Some people like to analyze things way too closely. Yeah I may be being biased, but hey I am a true Williams fan.
