Jill Craybas is still playing?!

I thought I got the shock of my life when I saw her name on the main draw... Apparently she was given a wildcard to enter Indian Wells. I thought she was retired a long time ago

Re: Jill Craybas is still playing?!

She's been playing ITFs. She can't get out of qualies in WTAs. Hasn't been in a main draw until this gift WC since last July.. Don't know why she's still out there. May be a competition addiction. With the money she's spending, she may a trust fund baby.

Re: Jill Craybas is still playing?!

Does she have any kids? Maybe she wants to play to support her family

She's still doing well in doubles though. Inside the top 100, won a round at the Australian Open and a few other WTA events this year. She's already made over $20,000 so far this year, so it's definitely not a trust fund situation.

That being said, doubles specialist or retirement time is looming. After watching her play a couple of matches this year, she has absolutely no sting on her shots anymore. All she can do is run and that's not the easiest game plan at age 38. Considering that she lost to players ranked outside of the top 500 twice last month, I was pretty shocked she got a main draw WC here.

Re: Jill Craybas is still playing?!

The only reason she got a MDWC to IW was because Oudin made the Main Draw directly after qualies already started playing. So obviously Jill was in IW and they needed to give someone the WC.

Re: Jill Craybas is still playing?!

Tbh even during Jill's heyday she was still only a fringe WTA player and has always had to have challengers in her schedule. If you have always done that it probably doesn't seem that bad playing them now.

The only thing is she is obviously not playing as well these days and is she happy going on not playing as well as she once did. As I'm sure the money she still earns and probably a small clothing deal is more than enough to cover her expense.
