Bets on who will withdraw...

So apparently there is a big withdraw that happened, with one or more members of the top 4 seeds pulling out. Who do you think pulled?

Lindsay Davenport|Elena Bovina|Marissa Irvin|Tatiana Golovin|Mary Pierce|Sesil Karatantcheva|Cara Black|Clarisa Fernandez

It had to be some one who could affect how the draw is done, so it is probably Justine or Venus, with Justine being the slight favorite because she has bronchitus and Venus has gotten over the flu (the real reason why she didn't play Antwerp) and her knee injury.

It could be both. Venus, if we are to believe that thread posted in GM, was still yesterday in London. I thought that some other players are already for few days practicing in Dubai.

justine, venus and jenn

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

If we trust the poll Nastya will be the top seed. That's great for her, but not good for the others and for the tournament.
Anyway, even if they don't withdraw I think Nastya will be capable of beating them, as they are obviusly not in top form.

You're all wrong Farina-Elia withdrew. Justine, Venus and Jen are all playing - draw is out on WTA website
