It's possible

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige ŕ répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brűlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

Re: Good news about Dechy's injury

It's not hte best ranked player who is the LL anymore. Now, it's totally ramdom (a draw).

It was created to eliminate a situation when the higher ranked player know she can lose and still make in the MD.

IMO, it's ridiculous she can still compete in the tournamenet if she retired in a match.It's not the YEC.

Re: Good news about Dechy's injury

In WTA tournaments its still the highest rankt players who get in.

If a player retired with heat illness and no injury ithink its OK to be a LL.

Please visit my Caroline website.

It is for all ITF events,since Grand Slams are ITF events they are using random LL system from last year on.

I dont think WTA changed their "highest ranked loser" LL system.

Re: Good news about Dechy's injury

Rediculous that a player who retired in qualies is allowed to play the MD.

Some of the rules that the WTA makes are just so .

Grassonkova.

But she didn't retire with heat illness. She retired with a quad strain

Re: Good news about Dechy's injury

Well, she didn't end up playing anyway. Obziler's playing Golovin.
