Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

I wonder why Asian playoff was held in October??
Players around Top100-150 still had chance of direct in and didn't participated
which ended up #575 getting the WC.

Participants so called Asia Pacific playoff...
China 9
Chinese Taipei 2
India 2
Thai 1
And we should call it Chinese WC from next year.

Any reason why? She did ok clawing her way into the top 200. Did she run out of funds? I know that happened to Australia's Jessica Moore, so she took a year off to coach and waitress to make extra money.

And that is with only playing five events from May until the end of the season. She got as high as 182 this season... I wonder what happened.

I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing she's had some nagging injuries since late spring/ early summer

Why is Taylor not playing this? She played last year and since then has had pretty good junior results

She was offered a QWC to the AO but she declined it because it is "to far and expensive".

She actually earned it
