Kuznetsova, Bencic, Pavlyuchenkova, Hingis, Mirza, Makarova, Vesnina, Kasatkina (WC) will play. Maria Sharapova will play if she loses early in Melbourne. Also the organizers are negotiating with Ivanovic, Kvitova and even with S. Williams.

"Maria Sharapova will play if she loses early in Melbourne." don't know why but I laughed when I saw this :lol: She's probably playing FC so she'll be at Russia anyways. Paris attracts a decent field in the past so hopefully the EL would be slightly better than Antwerp.

I'm surprised that Ana may play as I think she has to play Dubai because of Dubai Duty Free thing :eek: Don't you dare to play three tournaments in a row :facepalm:

Maria was already asked a few weeks ago and said no, basically :lol:

I think the tournament is just name-dropping to sell tickets, the confirmed players aren't that exciting for a Premier and nowhere near as good as Paris used to be.

Who would be more difficult to get? Maria or Serena? :spit:

Even so, it should have a significantly better entry list than Antwerp, which had a main draw cut-off of #60. There are some Internationals with a similar cut-off, and with only 4 more places in the main draw. :eek:

Hopefully Sveta wins her home event :inlove: Masha doesn't play in Russia. Thought VUVUrenka might enter actually.

I doubt they'll get Serena or Maria... Maybe if it was P5 event (900 points), but 470? But who knows... I would definitely like Ana to play there. Ana likes visiting new places where she never played before, so I think it might happen. :)

Paris wasn't as good as it used to be either.

Dubai/Doha has sucked the life out of anything European indoors in that time slot.

Will Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpischev allow Serena to play there?

As if Maria wasn't motivated enough to play well in Australia :hysteric:
