Alberta Brianti wins Wimbledon's Plastic Fork Award

....or whatever it's called.
Essentially every player from Tathiana Garbin (who defeated Brianti) ends up losing to their opponent on the top half of the draw....i.e.
Brianti lost to Garbin
Garbin lost to Medina Garrigues
Medina Garrigues lost to Wozniacki
Wozniacki lost to Lisicki
Lisicki lost to Safina
Safina lost to V. Williams
V. Williams lost to S. Williams
Poor Alberta

Vesnina...Martic...Shvedova
Kulichkova...Arruabarrena...Fett
Hantuchova...Dellacqua...Bondarenko
Mattek-Sands...Broady...Hsieh

Whatever you do now,

Re: Alberta Brianti wins Wimbledon's Plastic Fork Award

Actually, as Brianti comes out of qualies, aren't e supposed to go back all the way till first round of qualies ?

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

If that's the case, then congrats to Hsieh Su-Wei who lost by walkover in the first round

I guess she should have thought twice before withdrawing

Very good question....not sure....but then again you're talking to the guy who first called this the Plastic Fork Award. What do I know?
However if we go back to qualies than the "winner" would be Katalin Marosi.

Vesnina...Martic...Shvedova
Kulichkova...Arruabarrena...Fett
Hantuchova...Dellacqua...Bondarenko
Mattek-Sands...Broady...Hsieh

No, we do not go back to Qualies. We start at Round 1 of the Main Draw.

Qualies are qualies, not starters.
