Worst draw for any type of tier. Most ITFs 50K up qualies are harder.
This looks like an April Fool's joke.

This shows how dumb Dokic is....she withdrew from here, when she could have had a chance here to get some much needed points

Re: Bali 2008 : Worst ever WTA quali draw?!?

Not exactly. I remember one year in Guangzhou one player's cousin was asked to play Q because there were no other players.What's more ridiculous,is that she won a match.

Re: Bali 2008 : Worst ever WTA quali draw?!?

The average rank is 1,708.5...
Vina del Mar's, which is even smaller, top 8 qualifying players average rank was 146.25


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.

A statistical note: it's irrational to make an average with the "9999", it's not even a ranking. If anything, count her as a #1000.
It reminds me of Eurosport commentators yesterday saying Serena's opposition average up to the semis was 56, and Safina's over 200, not realizing that Ahn totally distorts that average, and should be counted as some sort of adjusted floor for this type of calculation, for what it's worth, say #150.
