I know Teliana Pereira said she'll play the WTAs in South America, but it'll be qualies. Does anyone know anyone else who'll play here? :wavey: And when is the entry list out?

the entry list will be out the first week of jan.
the only thing I know is that there will be 6 chileans in the qualy draw and 4 on MD :help:
pennetta and dulko are not sure of playing it but they are negotiating with the organizers.

Pfff . It´s gonna be a mug tournament, it seems :eek:

I can not understand how the organizers of the Movistar Open (same organizers of this tournament) wanna pay money for the most boring top 20 player(Tommy Robredo) and how they can not bring at least 1 top 20 player to this WTA tournament considering this fact (Boredo)

Another thing , I find pretty ridiculous pay guarantees to Dulko . I doubt that in another tournament she gets money just for showing- up

I doubt they will give all WC's to Chilean players. I think that they will spread it around South America. Koch-Benevuto can be thrilled that for the first time she will get a WC if not MD WC

camila silva is for sure a WC, koch may be one too since she is the chilean top 1.
Koch should have and will certainly have a main draw WC.
I also think they will give some wild cards to other South American... Chile doesn't have players in the top 400, so they should give a chance to an other South American with better chances to win a match.

Who is Camila Silva? A junior?

First and last year of this tournament :tape::help:
Viña del Mar has applied for this tournament again in 2009 in week 7 also ;)

Entry list is horrendous, Loit is top seed and Cibulkova and Shaughnessy are the next two seeds but as priority #2 and they are 1st and 2nd in qualies in Antwerp the very same week as 1st priority :help::help::help:

Lots of players in Viña del Mar MD entered here as 2nd priority also :tape:

5 players out of top 100 in MD already...this tournament is gonna make Bogotá look STRONG :lol:

BTW the organizers bought the rights for this tournament (and Bangalore's Tier II also) knowing they wouldn't get any player commitment from the WTA due to these late changes :tape:
