Re: Iva Mekovec cheering thread

Junior section of the ITF website states that entries into GA tournaments are done 4-6 weeks before they start. What this means for Iva. If entry into Wimbledon would be 4 weeks before it starts, that means the ranking used would be the one used at the time the French Open starts. And if Iva's points from Bonfiglio would be added immediately after the finals, she could stand a chance of entering Wimbledon this year...if she would've at least made the finals here. Reaching the finals would get her to right around #100, and that might be enough for a quali draw (64 MD + 32 QD). BUT (there's always that but...), in that case her post-Bonfiglio points could be used only if the deadline were 4 weeks and only if her Bonfiglio points would've been added immediately and not, say, a week later. To make matters even more complicated, if she would've won Bonfiglio her ranking would rose to around #75, but then it's questionable if it would be enough for a 64 player main draw.

OK, I definately got carried away with this...
