Well done to Kirsten.

But I really feel that this LL rule is stupid - by rights Opriandi should have made it in as she was the top seed of qualifying. But there we go..........

Flipper had her chances in the match against Pichet, so I think she could win this time, let's hope so

the new rule by the way, is that there's a draw between the 4 highest ranked losers in qualifying. Kirsten got out of it ...

YANINA WICKMAYER!!!
TAMMY HENDLER, KIRSTEN FLIPKENS, AN-SOPHIE MESTACH, SOFIE OYEN
Caroline Wozniacki, Laura Robson, Sorana Cirstea, Ana Ivanovic, Victoria Azarenka

When it's meant to be, it's meant to be! So she should win her first Main Draw match in a Grand Slam now

A stupid rule IMO but I can see why it was brought in when players tank matches because they know there is a L/L spot

allez kirsten get revenge

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

From the 2006 Grand Slam Rules:


ii. Substitutions A Lucky Loser shall be inserted in the appropriate position as a substitution for any player who withdraws or is withdrawn before the first point is played in his first match. In order to be eligible for substitution, a Lucky Loser must: (1) report to the Referee and sign the Lucky Loser Sign-In Record at least one-half (½) hour prior to the start of the first match of each day, and (2) be ready to play within five (5) minutes for men’s events and fifteen (15) minutes for women’s events after the announcement of the default. If the eligible Lucky Loser is not available to play, in men’s events he shall be placed at the bottom of the Lucky Loser priority list for that day corresponding to the qualifying round in which he lost and in women’s events she shall forfeit her Lucky Loser status for the duration of the tournament. If the eligible player is playing in the doubles event at the time he is called as a Lucky Loser in singles, the singles match may be rescheduled so he can fill the Lucky Loser position, provided the Referee determines that such rescheduling of the singles match does not cause an unreasonable disruption in the schedule; otherwise the next available Lucky Loser shall be selected to fill such vacancy.

26iii. Vacancy During Qualifying If a Lucky Loser position should become available during the qualifying competition, it shall be treated the same as the qualifying places for placement in the main draw. iv. Vacancy After Qualifying If a Lucky Loser position becomes available after the qualifying places are drawn in the main draw, the top ranking player who signs the Lucky Loser Sign-In Record before the start of the first match will be inserted in the appropriate position. If a position becomes available during the day, the top ranking player who has signed that day’s Lucky Loser Sign-In Record will be inserted in the appropriate position at the time the withdrawal is confirmed. Unless otherwise determined by the Referee, positions becoming available after the start of play for the start of the last match of each day will be filled by the top ranking player who signs the Lucky Loser Sign-In Record on the successive day of play. When two (2) or more positions become available at the same time, during the foregoing period, the positions to be occupied by each Lucky Loser will be determined by drawing. 3. Singles Qualifying Competition The qualifying competition shall be a single elimination tournament.

Allez.

I don't see this confirmed on the official site though
