Someone Help Me. Will Szavay Be Seeded?

As you may know (or can probably guess) I am fairly shocked to see Szavay in the qualifying here, but I had a question...

If (big, BIG, BIG if) she should qualify, will she take the position of a normal qualifier or how she should be seeded, like ITF?

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: Someone Help Me

Why is she in qualifying in the first place? I thought her ranking was high enough for her to get into the main draw.

Re: Someone Help Me

She's a late entry and they don't have the rule anymore that you're first alternate if you enter late and the idiot tournament directors didn't give her a wildcard cause they wanted to see a Mexican get bageled instead

Re: Someone Help Me

I've never seen this situation before, and usually MD comes out before Qualifying ends. It will be very interesting to see what will happen

Usually, the directors would give a WC, but why not this time. Mexico has 2 tournaments, so 2 chances for the mexican girls to play. Why not get some quality players like Szavay in MD instead of unranked Mexicans
(no offense)

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Are you sure?

I just think no one withdrew and since she entered late, she can play qualifying.

With Szavay's form, she needs the qualifying.

That's interesting. So why would players even bother to enter late? Szavay knew this going into it, at least. She must know she needs the extra matches.

Re: Someone Help Me

I think it's the correct decision from the organizers to give her a WC. Do you think with her current form she'd win a match in MD? She needs some matches under her belt to get the confidence back up. Furthermore, Mexico has only two tournaments, so it's obvious they wanna give their girls a chance. These home tourneys have been a breakthrough for many players in the past.

Re: Szavay has to play Acapulco qualies?

Yes she does. She entered late, so she has to play qualies and TBE said, she isn't on the marquee player list.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Wouldn't be bad for her. She plays so badly right now she can use some practice!

DOKIC VERA Z. ANA CARO
HANTUCHOVA KIRILENKO MIRZA CHAKVETADZE REZAÏ BACSINSZKY
Good luck to: Pironkova, Karatantcheva, Peng, Krajicek, Dushevina, Vesnina, Cetkovska, K&A Bondarenko, Oudin, Cornet, Tatishvili, Cibulkova, Olaru, Niculescu, Cirstea, Kleybanova, Larcher de Brito, Robson, Zahlavova Strycova, Rogowska, Marino... Would be even more...
