Re: Wild Cards?

Granville into Main Draw now on ranking. Edit options below.
=============================


1. How many WCs will there be, in MD? In Qualies?

2. MD possibilities?
- Any "USA" player in Qualies (Osterloh, Ditty, King?, Mattek, Rolle?)

- Osterloh could make it into MD on ranking anway - needs just 3 more withdrawals out of a field of 75.

- Anybody else besides those listed above who might get a MD WC?

3. Qualie draw possibilities?
- Any "USA" player on the Alt List for Qualies (Spears? Kops-Jones? Haynes? Brengle? Perry? Albanese?). Others?

- Spears could make it into Qualies on ranking anway - needs about 9 more withdrawals out of the MD or Qualie field, and these are big fields so it is possible.

- Anybody else besides those listed above who might get a Qualie WC?

^^ Note: any one with a ? after her name may or may not be on the entry list. I'm not sure about those.

Yeh i totally agree henrymag. I can tell you i saw asha rolle play in Sydney at the start of the year and she got smashed by Pironkova. There not talented, there overated and overhyped.

These are hopeless, but some of the others might not be (Oudin and Vandeweghe, for example)...

Re: Wild Cards?

Glatch must be pretty unhappy. She's a local Californian, 18, and currently ranked above Brengle who is the same age. Didn't even get a qualy wc. Ouch!
