Re: Early entries

Wikipedia says Ivanovic, Kerber, Petkovic and Muguruza are confirmed. Don't know if Wikipedia is a reliable source though.


Sharapova / Azarenka / Wozniacki / Muguruza

Don't know about this, could be true.
These players could actually play here, but nothing is officially confirmed yet?

Any news Spiceboy?

Entrylist will probably come in the first week of January?

Thanks!

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Early entries

Should be an attractive tournament to play for Dutch players, coming home from Australia. Antwerp is just across the border.

Re: Early entries

Genie Bouchard is main attraction at Diamond Games in Antwerp. Kerber & Cibulkova other top 10. Tournament Director Kim Clijsters is happy.https://twitter.com/GraveyardFilip/s...14808891658240

Re: Early entries

Names that are already confirmed are:

Bouchard
Kerber
Cibulkova
Petkovic
Cornet
Suarez Navarro
Flipkens
Wickmayer
Van Uytvanck
Mestach

I believe it is likely that the WC will go to Wickmayer

Re: Early entries

I have nothing against Bouchard, but if she is the player who has to attract the big crowds, I fear the worst for this tournament I hope a real big name like Serena, Venus, Sharapova, or yes, even Ivanovic will come to safe this tournament...

You have 3 top 10 players (so far) and all seeded players in the Top 20 for a tournament in a random surface in between AO, the Emirates swing and IW & Miami all played in similar conditions and still complain?
Did you really expected Serena or Sharapova to play here?

I don't think any of these names have ever been very likely. As Spiceboy said, it's an indoor tournament right between the Australian and the Emirates tour. Considering this, I think that the entry list is already quite impressive (although I had kinda expected that Ivanovic would be here )
