Serena likely to receive WC for Moscow

Today I listened to Radio Sport FM (Russian radio station) as they were talking to Tarpischev who said, "WTA asked us [Kremlin Cup organizers] to give wild card to Serena Williams. We will come to decision tomorrow". Other wild cards are going to Elena Bovina and Vera Dushevina.

It would be great to see Serena in Moscow but I'm not sure if she really is going to play. I mean, she just withdrew from Stuttgart with no certain reason.

No they shouldn't give her a wildcard. Qualies or bust Serena. She isn't too good to play qualies. She needs to work for it this time. No special treatment. Why should she get a wildcard anyway? The draw has big names so there is no pressure for the tournament to get her in.

I know she will definetely get the wild card. But since it's still "unofficial" I prefer to write she likely to receive WC.

And no, Jaffas,
Serena hasn't won Moscow. She's played Kremlin Cup only once in 1997 coming through qualifications and losing in the main draw 1st round.

Bovina and Dushevina received wild cards. And Serena might have Gold Exempt status, I suppose.

Serena Williams should never have to play another qualifying round during or after her career is over. Multiple Grand Slam Champions should never be made to play a qualifying event. She has earned that privilage many times over.

that's mostly bad for pavlyuchenkova.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Serena should only play qualies if she wants to - I don't really think she's lacking in match play so she should definitely get a WC. She brings buzz and interest wherever she goes.
