Monica should be a huge contender for the title since most top players don't play here. I suppose Jenn will be here and maybe Anna. Hingis will probably skip as she does this thing with this event where she plays every other year. The Belgians will probably be practicing on the red clay.
Will Venus or Serena come? Hmm that will be interesting.
ASV will be here as well as Mandy I'm pretty sure. I don't know why more players play this events since there are less top players and it is a Tier I.
