(Tulsa-AP) -- Serena Williams isn't coming to Oklahoma City for the IGA U-S Indoors after all.

But there's still some star power in the lineup.

Tournament director Sara Fornaciari says Jennifer Capriati and Monica Seles are still on the list.

The last-minute cancelation was reminiscent of last year. Venus Williams and Anna Kournikova pulled out just days before it began.

Fornaciari managed to bring in Seles, however.

Qualifying for the final four spots in the tournament begins today and continues tomorrow at The Greens Country Club.

The main draw begins with two matches tomorrow in Oklahoma City University's Abe Lemons Arena. A full schedule is planned Monday.
