Spiceboy, can you be so kind to explain why Candantu with a WR #119 got into the MD ahead of the other Alternates with rankings lower than her? Thank you very much for your reply and explanation...
Entry list for MD is done 6 weeks before the tournament starts. Back then Cadantu was still top 100 as she still had her points for Monterrey final last year (Monterrey was held same time as Dubai in 2012).
Entry list for Q is done 4 weeks before the tournament starts. In that list Cadantu is shown as #17 as Monterrey points were taken off during that 2 week span. She still got in MD in Charleston ahead of lots of players as ALTs to MD are taken into acccount from the original MD list, not the Q list.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
Is this entry list certified by GOAT Ms. Zimmerman?
