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.

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.
(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!! **Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
