Re: Heather Watson

219 people are not gonna withdraw. I assume that she has some sort of arrangement already? If not she is really wasting her time...

Re: Heather Watson

Well she's now 166th in line 53 players pulling out in 4 days, lets be hopeful

Shes also down to play $25k Fort walton beach the week after, but its a similar situation. She's currently 180th alternate.

Lets hope she has some sort of wild card agreement sorted out

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather Watson

Yeah shes not in the qualifying draw, but only 3 wildcards have been dished out for the MD as of yet, 1 more to go. But yeah it's highly doubtful she'll get one!

I think she needs to be a bit more realistic in her scheduling. Maybe start off in some weak $10k's or ask for wildcards in British $25k's

Yes i read an article (think it was in the local Guernsey newspaper) that her parents/team were surprised at the number of entrants. They thought she would get into qualies. But thats a bit odd as its incredibly unlikely you'll get into $50K qualies with no ranking...

$10K or possibly a weak/British $25K would be a better bet. It did also say it now looks like her pro debut will be in Jersey (which is a $25K i think...)

Re: Heather Watson

I know there is vicious inter-island rivalries but is she getting a wild card into Jersey for being a sorta local girl.

It sounds as though her parents and team need to talk to some people who are more knowledgeable about these things. That would be a better use of everyone's time than to enter Heather for events for which she has no chance of playing in the qualifying.

Re: Heather Watson

Doesn't she got to Bollteri? Surely that there are people there with a wealth of knowledge on such matters. Maybe they got a bit ambitious since Laura got a WC into a Tier III.

Re: Heather Watson

Heather is on the $10k Bath list starting 16/3/09 - currently the 99th alt. Definately a more realistic place to make her debut - then the following week a wild card in $25k Jersey looks pretty secure

Re: Heather Watson

She's now 14th alternate and some unranked players have already made it into qualifying so I think Heather will make it even without a wild card

Re: Heather Watson

10ks are so dull, I liked how Laura aimed high A 25k is exciting though. I hope she can get a QWC at Wimb, though I expect there are a lot more people who deserve it more.

Re: Heather Watson

Well she's not British based like Laura so maybe she wanted to play a local event, despite the fact that she'd probably be able to get a WC in British ITF's by asking the LTA.
