Auckland has received an exemption from the WTA to allow both to play. However, there's no guarantee now that Andreescu will be fit enough to appear. Fingers crossed that she fully recovers in time to participate, especially given the rapturous reception that she will receive after this year's efforts.
Btw, I has wondered since i read this, how can one tournament recive an exemption from WTA, if not all others Int. Series can ask and get the same?

It is all about money..there is a rule for..if you wants more top players you have to offer more price money...

all years before Serena refused the Top Ten status..don´t know if she did it for 2020 too

This was posted at the WTA site approx. 4 hours ago..... "The full field for the hard court tournament, which runs January 6-12, will be unveiled on Wednesday."

Kinda sudden isn't it or not to have a fully committed field this early?


Will WTA start to post the Lists? as they now on their new site has an Players Link...

So Townsend is going to fly all that distance for an International Event. Good for her! Maybe she will realize just how good she is!
