Can just anyone, unranked, play in ITF Tournaments?

I would love to play against top players from about 200-whatever, just to see how I am.

yeah - good luck getting into the draw though! You might make it into the draw of a $10k in Benin or something...

yeah in other words: you CAN...but of course ranked players have preference, and then I assume it goes on a first entered, first on alts list basis... So no, that would not be contradicting myself!

Yeah, you can, but you would have to play qualifyings. And of 25K, 10K only. In some, you wouldn't even get to qualies, but most 10K, some 25K and few rares 50K and 75K you would. Only if you go to some tournaments where nobody goes, you would get into main draw.

Go Brazilian girls!

Yes - like most of the African/South American tourneys!

Cool. So I assume by what you're saying, that anyone can play on the Satelites?

as I just said... IF you can get into the draw...obviously if you haven't got a WTA rank, you're not gonna have preference...so yeah, you have to go to places with REALLY weak draws like Africa of South America. And you wouldn't get top 200 players playing there usually...
