The list of women commited to play at Melbourne was supposed to be submitted December 3 in Melbourne (it is presently 11:00 AM December 4), but was delayed by the WTA because of the US Thanksgiving holiday weekend (the WTA offices were closed Thursday and Friday). It is going to be submitted on Decmeber 4, but I don't know if that is December 4 Melborune or December 4 Florida. From what I been reading, don't expect to see Martina Hingis on the list of commitments.
Well, if yuo look in General Messages, you will see that Martina said she intends to play. I don't know what that means, but when I see her play, I will believe it because for someone who is coming off of an injury, I don't know why she would not play a warmup tournament.
Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
