Maybe representing Aus gave her better results.

I wonder if she'll be representing Oz on the new rankings on Monday?

Re: Gajdosova officially representing Australia at Wimbledon!

It's because the WTA refuses to call her an Aussie because the ITF also refuses to call her an Aussie.
But apparently the Slams are run differently, in other words, it is at the discression of the officials at each grand slam. Hence, at Melbourne Park and at Wimbledon, the officials agreed to let her represent Australia, but at Roland Garros, they refused. Same goes for Rodionova

Re: Gajdosova officially representing Australia at Wimbledon!

Why are they refusing to recognize her permanent residency/citizenship?

Re: Gajdosova officially representing Australia at Wimbledon!

Because she needs to live in Australia for two blocks of nine months without leaving the country to gain citizenship and an Australian passport, bloody stupid
TA is appealing on both Gajdosova and Rodionova's behalf...I think they both hope to be representing Australia ''full time'' by 2009 Australian summer
