Re: Charleston FinalQ: Marie-Ève Pelletier def Mashona Washington 6-4 6-4
Except for one first-round loss in Quebec City in 2005 (and Rogers Cup wild cards), this is Pelletier's first main-draw appearance at a WTA Tour event in FOUR years. Since FCC, 2005.
She's only there because the field is very weak this year. She got into the qualies ranked No. 309.
Typically the last seed, No. 16, is ranked somewhere around No. 30 in the world for this tourney. This year, it's No. 62.
Well done to take advantage of the opportunity and win two matches.
