Question What Will WTA Do If [Q] SAKKARI (Who Isn't Even In Beijing MD) Reaches Wuhan SF ???

several years ago WTA launched the concept of Performance BYES (where players reaching the SF or F of the prior week get a 1R BYE the following week)

I don't think it has happened yet when a player who isn't in MD the following week is entitled to a Performance BYE

so what happens if SAKKARI were to continue her dream run

exactly, I guess if it was a Golden Flower, they would have given her a MDWC straight into 2R, but since it is some Greek girl, they just tell her oh well, and there is now already a LL spot in the MD, cue tanking in QFR

SAKKARI is still in the Beijing QD

is it possible that if she loses in the SF tomorrow, she flies to Beijing afterwards, wins 2 QD matches on Sunday, and therefore still qualifies, and then moves directly into MD 2R

in that case they won't be able to release the MD until after SAKKARI's QD match(es) are completed

Is there a rule for this? Sakkari plays the biggest match of her career against Garcia in Wuhan.
Peak WTA!

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

not exactly

the only similar rule was when Dubai and Cincy (in 2012) had Performance BYEs, the top 8 SEEDs already had BYEs so the rule was that if it was a top 8 player who reached the SF / F the prior week, the Performance BYE wouldn't be needed and another LL would be added to the MD

They could give her a Special Exemption into the main draw (which is what they should do).

um no, that is only certain MM tournaments which hold a MD spot open for players that reached SF of the prior MM

Well, that sucks. It wouldn't be fair for a lucky loser to get her bye.

There's no SE rule for Premiers.

The obvious thing to do would be to reward her with a MDWC. If that's not a reason to use a WC, I don't know what is. Obviously hasn't happened though.

Only 3 byes will look so random as well!

The LL will be in the draw instead of her bye and not receive her bye.

They should simply add her instead of the bye she would get. So she could at least compete in MD, just wouldn't be in R2 automatically.
