Stevenson Not In Wimby Qualies?

Anyone know why Alexandra Stevenson did not play in the Wimbledon qualies?
Was her ranking (#236) too low?
I see that she played both Birmingham and Nottingham qualies.
She actually qualified in Birmingham, losing a close one to Lucic in the first round of the main draw.

Thanks.

Yeah, that was too low, I guess the cut-off was around 220.

Re: Stevenson Not In Wimby Qualies?

Oh dear And they didn't give a wc for the qualies to a former Wimbledon semifinalist?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

She probably withdrew after not getting a MDWC

Good point. Where's the respect? The Brits are usually good about that sort of thing.
Maybe the other poster is right about her withdrawing when she didn't get a main draw wildcard?

Venus and Serena hired someone else to drive them around this year.
