Stevenson is playing, Shaugnessy did not withdraw, neither did Raymond. It is just that those rich players are happy to use any excuse not to play. Davenport and Williams sisters played total of 2 Tier I events outside of North America , while they played much more North Americans Tier Is. They just ignore the rest of the world, and here they were even given a valid excuse to do so. Ah, forget about them, I am fed up with those big hitters anyway, saw enough of them at US Open..
