Would be surprised if Kiki played this actually... I thought she was going on holiday somewhere these weeks.
It's such a random tournament for her to play. Is she still ClayClay at heart ? I guess she's used to playing more than Canada/Cincinnati for the whole summer though, and the rest of the US season is fairly slim pickings so might as well enjoy Southern Italy and get some practice in? I agree though that it would not be at all surprising if she withdraws.
