Bombshell: Domachowska shows the middle finger to Warsaw Tier II organisers



Marta Domachowska decided to withdraw from J&S Cup in Warsaw after the organisers gave the last main draw wild card to Katarzyna Piter.

The Pole sent a letter to the tournament office announcing that she wouldn't show up at the qualifying tournament starting on Saturday. The official reason is her participation in the Torrent challenger this week. The rumour is though that the family is angry at the organisers for not awarding a main draw wildcard to Domachowska. The WCs were given to two 16 year-olds: Ula Radwanska(WTA-340) and Katarzyna Piter (unranked).


Domachowska (WTA 162), who is still Poland's no.2, and her family were offended by tournament's decision to give a qualifying WC to Marta (even though Marta could use her own ranking for direct entry).
- We gave Marta three wild cards before, she had enough chances to use them in the development of her career. Now it's time for other girls - explained Stefan Makarczyk, tournament director. Domachowska's replacement in qualifying will probably be Karolina Kosinska (WTA-303).


--------------------------

A pity that Marta wasn't given the WC. Piter is very young and has barely played the ITF circuit. She doesn't even have a ranking and it's probably to early for her to play TIER-II main draw. She would have benefited more from a qualifying WC where she could possibly win a match or two. Now it's up to Marta to go and win Torrent, if she loses early the organisers will be top this time.

Re: Domachowska shows the middle finger to Warsaw Tier II organisers

Did the organisers show her the MD wildcard in return?

IMHO It's better that she plays ITFs for now. She wouldn't win a match in MD unless she was veeeeery lucky with the draw.

Well, I don't understand her decision. I know that she's mad that she didn't get a WC but heck, the tournament organiser is right, she wasted all her WCs
She should play qualies though

Swiss champs.

Damn I was misled by the topic title and thought there might be a picure of her giving the finger to someone.

Re: Domachowska shows the middle finger to Warsaw Tier II organisers

I'm with Marta on this one...maybe she hasn't done a lot, but giving a MAIN DRAW wildward to an unranked junior? That's pretty much a slap in the face.
