Is it possible for this to happen

A player is on the entry list for a tourney. With all the SRs and other stuff, it's just a secure place in the quallies. But she gets a wildcard, or gets told she's gonna get a wildcard and the quallies start without her. Then a badass Gold Exampt player comes along, takes the WC as per rules, and the original player is left out of the tournament.

Yes, I'm talking about the Iva/Meghan situation. No, it didn't happen (edited).

I'm just interested if this is a valid scenario. If it is, well, it needs to be changed - it's a load of bull no matter who the players involved are.

No, that probably didn't happen, even though it looked like it at one time. I'm just asking whether it would be possible.

Iva isn't a WC

she just got in as others withdrew
Schett and Rittner got ordinary WC's
Shaughnessy got the gold exempt WC

Good luck to my favs

But why did Iva get in and not Raymond who has a higher ranking or even Eleni?

I have read Iva also in , in Zurich.

Please visit my Caroline website.

We all have been confused about things that happened there ...
Why September, 16th?

You see I'm curious

there is one initial list of commitments
then about 3 weeks after this date there is an update ranking
where players in qualifying move up or down the list

ones in maindraw remain in maindraw
but ones in qualifying go up or down

Good luck to my favs

I don't think it's fair to take rankings from three weeks ago.
One more question, where will I find those old rankings?
