Can someone explain or guess why..

none of our 11 Top 100 girls play Antwerp, the biggest spring indoor season event? Do we hate Belgians?

Where is Bovina, for instance? It seemed like a perfect time to capitalise on her good rankings to close on Top 10. and indoors seems to be the right surface for that, and she seems to take a month of.

Zvonareva? Safina? Petrova?

Even Kournikova plays only St. Jude.

Myskina plays only Qatar, just when Top 10 seem to finally be within her grasp..

I understand that Panova and Elena L. would still play everything and nothing would change that, so it's not about them..

Did our girls catch an anti-Dokic syndrome and are falling into the opposite extremety - playing nothing instead of playing everything? This could be, at the end, not the worst idea. Three American Tier Is and European clay season is much more important than this. So, the fresher they are by then, the better it might be at the end.. Anyone heard anything about that from players or someone else?

Safina plays Qatar.

What I don't understand is do all of them have to be at the same small tournament? (LIKE Qatar)

please think about it: the field is super strong with #2,3,4,5,7 are playing... what is the chance you get any good points there? here is your answer.....

Bovina is based in the US, she'll play lots of weeks in a row there from Scottsdale.

It is dissapointing that the Russian girls in the top 100 are passing on Antwerp. They are missing out on a great opportunity to win a few matches.
