Re: Qualifying Draw

Am I right in think there are 8 qualifiers? If so there is going to be some complete byes in main draw for some lucky players.

Minimum ranking of 375 or WTA Full member status is required to enter a Premier tournament. (Top doubles players are WTA Full member status so they go ahead any player ranked #376 and below).

I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Qualifying Draw

the doubles specialists are "field fillers" when a lot of elibible qualifying players pull out i.e. when Fed Cup is going on simulataneously. They are already onsite so it's easy to fill out the draw with them. Singles Players that were too low ranked to make the original qualifying cutoff usually don't bother to travel to the tournament so the doubles players fill in.
