That makes no sense
Irina is the last one I didn't expect to sign up.
Also Serena signed up to play the Bastad clay MM that week, while superstar Halep can't be bothered to show up in Bucharest... embarrassing
Sorana will get a MDWC tho, that's just common sense. I understand Gabriela Ruse will also receive one, we'll see...
Come on , with the Serena comparison ......
She has to play at least one MM for the WTA sake, commitment and bonuses . Also, the Bastad moguls emptied their pockets deeply to bring Serena here ( she signed up from 2014 )
. Bucharest will not give sh*t to Halep or any other player.
. Also, the american could withdraw, like last year.
And the decision is taken after last year when she f*cked up the american & asian swing big time because of not being recovered from the Wimbledon injury and aggravating it in Bucharest (cum "s-a dat de gol" recent si cine are ochi sa vada, a vazut asta)
EDIT: Oh yeah, and Serena, at 33 is MUCH better prepared physically and adapts quicker than Halep
. Also, Ruse might be a big mistake for an MDWC !.
