Us Open 2012

Thought I'd better start a thread considering it's only 2 weeks away.

Main Draw

[6] Samantha Stosur
Jarmila Gajdosova

Qualifying

Casey Dellacqua
Olivia Rogowska
Anastasia Rodionova
Sacha Jones
Monique Adamczak

* Barty and Bella are in alternates but have basically no chance at all to make it in.
* Casey is only 4 out of the main draw so with some luck may get IN and free up a WC for Olivia (presumably)
* Bobusic and Ar.Rodionova probably would have made qualies but never entered? Strange for Bojana considering she has friends in the states. I know she pulled out injured her last tournament but she hadn't even entered before that?

Re: Us Open 2012

Also just saw that Casey has entered Dallas qualifying and Olivia hasn't which pretty much confirms that she will be getting the wildcard.

Re: Us Open 2012

So Casey is sure that she will get into MD?

Re: Us Open 2012

Im so worried about Sam here it is going to drive her nuts being defending champion and with her form cant see her going deep

Sharapova ~ Li ~ Kerber ~ Kvitova ~ Kirilenko ~ Ivanovic ~ Stephens ~ Makarova ~ Safarova ~ Cirstea ~ Goerges ~ Cornet ~ Lisicki ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Kanepi ~ Keys ~ Tsurenko ~ Wozniak ~ Puig ~ Oudin ~ Petkovic ~ Sevastova ~ Rezai

AND OF COURSE ALL THE AUSSIES!!!

Re: Us Open 2012

Any chance someone can work out a breakdown of what Sam's ranking will plummet to if she loses in each round?

Gavrilova | Stosur | Barty | Rodionova | Aiava | Tomljanovic | Adamczak | Dellacqua

Roughly (and assuming no more points at Cincinatti this week):

R1 3605 (11th)
R2 3700 (10th)
R3 3760 (9th)
R4 3880
QF 4100
SF 4500
FI 5000 (8th)
W 5600 (6th)

Re: Us Open 2012

Thank you. I suppose worst case scenario- a ranking of 11 isn't so bad.

That's comforting actually. I think at this stage given Sam's past efforts in the 2 big Asian events after the Us Open we can kiss the YEC this year goodbye though.

Re: Us Open 2012

As expected, Casey got the wildcard.

That was as certain as Sam losing her 1st round match at the AO this year. i.e., 99.9% certain Told yas.

Re: Us Open 2012

I'd say Ash will get a qwc like last year.

Re: Us Open 2012

Surely she knew she wouldn't get a MDWC if she doesn't play any lead up tournaments. But she did say she was looking to play at USO next on her twitter.

Isn't there only 1 QWC spot left? And why would they give it to her?

Re: Us Open 2012

Does the qualifying draw come out tonight/early tomorrow morning(our time)?

Hopefully a good placement for the girls.

Go Livvy, get that top 100 spot!
