Kostanic and Anca Barna are both in qualifying for Dubai and in Memphis ?

Chanda not playing is sad, Anna not playing was predictable but how terrible promoting with her and now she´s not even coming there.

Yes, I think it is always a mistake for any tournament to promote just one player. If that player pulls out (and it happens all the time, as they should realize) the public has no idea why they should bother attending, because no one else has been built up.

Now they are busy promoting Anna's brief appearance when she will hand over a charity check! get busy and promote the TENNIS, people! LOL

Luckily for them, the men's line-up does have a lot of pizzazz.

Why is Chanda not playing? She needs tournaments! Ugh... just getting to the semis in this weak draw would have got her in the Top 10.

I don't know, Leena. Maybe her knee was worse than she let on when she pulled out of Hyderabad.

The web site has no mention of her cuircumstances; her name is just gone.

That sucks... has Chanda ever been healthy for more than a couple months in her career? Poor girl.

Amanda, Silvia, Vera and Alex could all do really well with this field!!!! I'd love to see Amanda win this!!!!
Lisa has a great chance to defend a lot of her points from last year as well. Good for her!
Emilie, Silvija and Amy could go far too!!! Good luck ladies (except Alex- sorry Alex fans!)

I don't think Els will travel down here

She's pretty exhausted after her match against Hantuchova and she will be more after a trip from Antwerp to Memphis.
