Can someone please explain this to me?

I just don't understand how entries into a tournament work.

How can Mashona Washington, ranking in the 800s and with only 10 ranking points, get directly into the Memphis draw?

She's ranked much lower than the wild cards and the qualifying entrants

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

Well then what about with wild cards, when the wild card is ranked higher than the other main draw entrants?

Like Goerges in Memphis is higher than Ani, Bremond, Cohen-Aloro, etc... yet she's a wild card

did they grant her the wild card when her ranking was too low to get in directly?

she could have entered late or was too low and is liked by organizers
