The tune ups are Indy, LA, DC, Montreal, Cincy, New Haven for the Men
and Stanford, LA, Cincy, Toronto, New Haven for the Women.

Top points earners stand to make a big bonus if they win the US Open.

Kim Clijsters and Roger Federer are the only ones who have won the
million dollar bonus.

At least among the men, the top players from outside the US play only at
the mandatory events.

Staying fresh for the slams is as important at tuning up your game.

Last year's series winners:

Nadal, Murray, del Potro
Safina, Bartoli, Cibulkova

This year:

Got to support the comeback (with) kid: Kim Clijsters!

STILL nobody else has done that?

Kim did it the first year the system was used, and hasn't played USO
since.

That makes her the defending Million Dollar Woman!

It isn't easy. Winning lots of points at the tune ups usually leaves the
winners a bit too tired at the US Open. Clijsters just had an amazing
2005 summer, as you pointed out recently.

On the men's side only Federer has won the USO, so nobody else have
had a shot at the max bonus.

On the WTA side, well, slams seems to be played in another universe
compared to the regular tournaments.

Thanks for getting this post more publicity again and reminding
everyone of these two great players  :-)
