BOYCOTT WATCH: Sony Ericsson WTA Tour player Dinara Safina Saturday said that the top WTA players "could boycott next year's WTA Tour if their questions are left unanswered." Safina said that the players are "unhappy with the planned changes to the schedule." Safina: "If they (WTA) don't listen to what we have to say, we might even choose to boycott the new tour. They said the leading players would have to play in designated tournaments while lower-ranked players would be able to enter any event they like. There's no logic in that at all. What if all the top players choose to enter the same tournament? What will the WTA do then? We want to know." Safina added there are "a lot of grey areas. No one seems to understand which tournaments you can play and which you can't" (ESPN.com, 10/12).
