Serena Williams heads top women tennis players on their way to Marbella, Spain for the Andalucía Tennis Experience. The International event is set to take place on the red clay of the Club de Tenis Puente Romano from April 6-12. Conchita Martinez (1994 Wimbledon Champion and former World #2), the tournament director, has said that Jelena Jankovic and Amelie Mauresmo are expected to participate. Others who have confirmed their participation include: Anabel Medina and Virginia Ruano.
In my personal opinion, I doubt that Serena will actually appear for this tournament. Why? This tournament is sandwiched (1 week) between two tournaments where she is the defending champion: (the Mandatory) Sony Ericsson Open, which is one of her favorites (Miami, March 25th) and (the Premier) Family Circle Cup (Charleston, April 13th). Travel wise: Miami, Spain, and Charleston in three straight weeks of play? Oh and let's not forget the prize money, $220,000. We will see.
