Should USO Champ Sloane (& RG Champ Jelena) Get WC To Singapore YEC 1500 ???

2017 Singapore YEC 1500 could make history by being the YEC in which there were 4 different Grand Slam champions but only one of them "qualifies" for the YEC

if Sloane is not in the top 8 should she receive a WC? I think YES because the WTA is desperate to market her as the future of the tour

but I guess they can't do it if it is Jelena in 8th

Yes. Sloane should receive a WC into the tournament. She's only been back for two months and she's already won a slam and reached a couple of big SFs among others. If there was ever a time to award a player a WC into the YEC Championships now is that time.

The WTA is so stupid. The ATP has a rule that Grand Slam champions are automatically admitted into the YEC

Re: Should USO Champ Sloane (& RG Champ Jelena) Get WC To Singapore YEC 1500 ???

Neither,

Rules are rules. Tough break but the 8 that occupy the top 8 spots should qualify its simple as that. I remember the men used to (possibly still do) have a system for slam winners but if it isn't in the rules they can't change them now on WTA.

Maybe something to consider for future years.

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

If Ostapenko is at #8, it's difficult to give the WC to Sloane as Jelena herself won a slam this year too. Hopefully she can get to #7 (only 163pts behind Konta atm), then the WC decision for Sloane would be much easier.

That isn't the rule. Under the ATP rules Sloane wouldnt be able to play unless she gets into the top 8 OR Ostapenko moves into the top 7.

Re: Should USO Champ Sloane (& RG Champ Jelena) Get WC To Singapore YEC 1500 ???

First lets see how Stephens plays. Its possible she will not win many matches after winning a major
Ostapenko is not a draw, so I cant see them denying a player who earned it with a WC to Jelena

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Should USO Champ Sloane (& RG Champ Jelena) Get WC To Singapore YEC 1500 ???

I still think Aljona won't need that. But I would find really sad if they took for example Konta's spot to give it to Sloane. This creates a really awkward situation, Linzgate would be nothing compared to it. And if it's not Konta, would mean taking the spot from a eastern european athlete from to give it to one North American, and this totally sends the wrong message.

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Is the policy that if you win a Slam you're automatically in? If not, I stand by my "no" vote.

Re: Should USO Champ Sloane (& RG Champ Jelena) Get WC To Singapore YEC 1500 ???

Hell no. Stephens will count every tournament for the rest of the year and at her current level a 1000-1200 point deficit should not be too much to overcome. Ostapenko is toast, but a humbling experience doesnt hurt, in her case.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
