Withdrawals

Garbiñe Muguruza Blanco, who turned 18 some weeks ago and would be playing in her first Grand Slam qualifying won't be travelling to Australia

She won a couple of tournaments ($10K & $25K) on hardcourts this year, beating Broady, Hogenkamp, Buyukakcay and Eguchi. It's not like she can't play on that surface and she would surely lost in R1. And it's always good to play a Grand Slam, especially when you are that young.

Re: Withdrawals

She is ranked #216 WTA. I don't think the final qualifying cut-off has ever been that high in a Grand Slam, let alone Melbourne

Re: Withdrawals

Garbiñe would have been nice ... cool to have (probably) made the cut-off though .. she seems to have risen so fast in 2011 almost top 200 already !

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Re: Withdrawals

Diatchenko is almost certainly out.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Re: Withdrawals

Dinara Safina won't be playing, presumably.

Lots of others will probably copy Garbine and not go - given the fact that there are dozens of ITFs in Australia before Christmas, it surely wouldn't hurt to have a couple either side of the GS qualifying to make it worth the trip for those players who are unable to get into qualifying for the pre-AO WTA tournaments. Fellow posters are correct to mention the US absentees - this happened last year so I would expect a few of the American players around the 180-230 mark to be out.

The AO qualifying also suffers because if players pull out of qualifying, there is no-one to replace them as no-one will fly out all that way on the off-chance unless they are in the juniors/doubles etc, which meant the cut-off was as low as 348 quite recently!

Wimbledon recently added an extra Nottingham ITF which was a great boost for grass court practice for players after Roland Garros.

Re: Withdrawals

I think Gallovits will play in Florida so she won't be at AO most likely!
Marie-Eve Pelletier will play in Fl. as well!
