Monday, 21 March, 2005 - Nasdaq-100 Open, Pacific Life Open, WTA Rankings
Miss Dokic seems not to play in Miami this week. The qualifying draw for the Nasdaq-100 Open has been already announced. Her name was not on it and the tournament official website has erased her name from the 2005 women's players list. She can not defend 55 points, which she gained last year in Miami by reaching the 4th round.
Former World No.1 Kim Clijsters claimed her 2nd Pacific Life Open title after defeating the top-seeded Lindsay Davenport, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in Saturday's final at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. It was her 22nd career singles title since February 2004 in Antwerp, having missed most of the last season with a wrist injury. She improved her World ranking from No.133 to No.38 on Monday.
