Red face NO Conspiracy Just SEWTA FAIL - Serena Arrived In Istanbul - Karo "Qualified" Sophia



SEWTA posted an article today announcing Nadia Petrova and Roberta Vinci as the first qualifiers (besides WC) to Sophia

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/201210...256076_2949493

this really does not make sense as our Queen Karolina / SEOUL MM CHAMP is ranked #11 and is the undisputed #1 qualifer to Sophia

the only possibility I can think of is Serena already told SEWTA she won't play Istanbul, which means Karolina becomes an alternate in Istanbul, which means she does not have to show up to Sophia

Yeah, thats what I thought also. If the WTA knows Serena is out, they should tell Stosur.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Conspiracy - SEWTA Not Announcing Karo In Sophia - Means Serena Withdrew Istanbul

you CAN play in Sophia if you are an alternate in Istanbul, as Na Li did in 2010 and Marion Bartoli did in 2011

however, I believe that if you make Istanbul as an alternate, you can decline on Sophia with no penalty

I thought Stosur was alt #1 so shouldn't she be in instead of Caro?

You are not an alternate if you enter the tournament after withdrawals BEFORE the tournament begins. You would then not be able to enter Sofia (notice the spelling - thank you). You are an entrant. That's why Wozniacki is not announced. Kanepi is more than 8 places out.

Re: Conspiracy - SEWTA Not Announcing Karo In Sophia - Means Serena Withdrew Istanbul

the only way Karolina officially enters Istanbul is if 3 of the top 8 withdraw ... I don't see any reason not to announce her as qualifying for Sophia
