How to decide players in MD when QD is playing

Why the Qualifying 6th seed in Malaysia, U. Rad, is promoted to MD but not for the top 5 seeds?

The promotion criteria does not relate to ranking?

Ula was the 1st MD alternate(based on MD entry list) and that was the reason she got promoted.

Exactly. When the entry list was made, Ula was the best ranked out of the qualifying group.

Now, she is the 6th ranked but was still the first alternate to Main Draw.

Seedings don't follow entry lists rankings, but actual ranking

This is indeed the only possible explanation... What is however strange is that she was not appearing on the Main Draw alternates list posted here. There must have been a ton of withdrawals then !

It could be possible that one of the wildcards withdrew and she got the wildcard if this list is reliable.

Nope. Lertcheewakarn simply is last into MD and would have been given a WC, but since it was free, they could reuse it!

Rest in Peace Bally!
