Re: Andi's summer: Roehampton, Wimbledon and beyond

Given the attention to Petko's schedule it's probably good to have a thread to discuss her summer. She's currently first ALT in Budapest, so it's pretty likely that she'll get into the tournament without having to play Q or use a WC. A week later are Bastad and Bad Gastein where she would be a bit further away from the MD if she has entered those tournaments.

Re: Andi's summer: Roehampton, Wimbledon and beyond

spiceboy (usually very good informed) see Petko as a lock for a Wimbledon Maindraw WC, specially after her Marseille showing

would be really torn about it

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Andi's summer: Roehampton, Wimbledon and beyond

Last year Grega Zemlja got a wild card after winning a challenger, so I don't think it's unrealistic to hope for a WC.

They sometimes gives a WC to someone who did well at Roland Garros like Ormaechea this year but no way they are giving her a WC. Or a player who does well at Birmingham like Oudin and Lisciki the last two years.

And Barty who was initially offered a QWC received a MDWC after winner a 50K challenger.

Was hoping for that news when I read that they're announcing the wild cards tomorrow.

Re: Andi's summer: Wimbledon and beyond

good news, i hope she will win few more matches in nuremberg and then she can rest and avoid the shitty courts of roehampton
hopefully she get a winable 1st round opponent, maybe a clueless claycourt girl

I'm so so so so happy
Just cross your fingers for me she isn't playing on a big court, so I can see her

Re: Andi's summer: Wimbledon and beyond

So most likely (if she gets into Budapest and doesn't withdraw) the full summer clay swing. Given her recent success on the surface and the limited competition she faces there might be a decent strategy to get herself into a position where she can make the MD of almost all tournaments again by the end of the year.
