Tatiana Golovin
Nadia Petrova (2006 champion)
Kaia Kanepi
Pauline Parmentier
Vera Dushevina
Lucie Safarova
Yan Zi (2007 doubles champion)
Zheng Jie (2007 doubles champion)
Ashley Harkleroad
Julia Vakulenko
Eleni Daniilidou (not sure she was entered, but I think she was, and--at any rate--she is injured)

Players who are usually or sometimes there but are not coming for one reason or the other include:

Sam Stosur (still recovering)
Flavia Pennetta (plaiyng in Estoril instead)
Ana Ivanovic (mediocre results in Charleston)
Eleni Daniilidou (injured--may have entered and therefore belongs in the top list)
Nicole Vaidisova (terrible results in Charleston)
The Bondarenko sisters
Li Na (seriously injured--again)

Players who may withdraw soon:

Elena Dementieva (withdrew from Amelia Island)
Vera Zvonareva (withdrew from Amelia Island)
Sybille Bammer (back problem)

Player who is about to withdraw:

Venus Williams

Players I wish would take a wild card:

Amelie Mauresmo (out of the question because of Fed Cup)
Daniela Hantuchova
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Shahar Peer
Sania Mirza
Alona Bondarenko
Tamira Paszek...or...
8-time champion Chris Evert (she's going to be there, and I'm sure she can still kick some ass on clay)
