USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

Players:

Julia Cohen (1)
Ashley Weinhold (2)
Gail Brodsky (3)
Ahsha Rolle (4)
Beatrice Capra (5)
Jessica Pegula (6)
Madison Keys (7)
Nicole Gibbs (8)

Hopefully one of the last three players wins it. Such a boring list.

Glatch and Hampton withdrew? Replaced by Cohen and Rolle I guess and then Capra and Gibbs were two unannounced.

Starts tomorrow!

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

The MD WCs are going to be announced either today or tomorrow, so I guess Riske, Glatch and Hampton will get the WCs.

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

Alison withdrew also it seems. Guess those 3 might have gotten guaranteed WCs.

Good luck to all except Julia.

Draw is most likely
Cohen vs. Gibbs
Brodsky vs. Pegula
Rolle vs. Capra
Weinhold vs. Keys

USTA normally does 1 vs. 8, etc. right? The positions of 3 and 4 may change whether against 1 or 2 in SFs.

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

If it ends up being a Cohen vs Weinhold final , I blame USTA.

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

Shelby Rogers was snubbed. Talked to her this week and she said she hadn't even heard from the USTA about it

I feel like Chichi and Shelby would have been much better choices than Rolle and Cohen

Hope Gibbs, Pegula, Keys, or Brodsky can win it.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

Keys wins her match against Weinhold 7-5 (unknown second set score)

Gibbs served for the match but didn't close it out. She and Cohen are going into a third set.

Re: USTA US Open WC Playoff - College Park, MD

Oh my What a collapse... At least Nicole is guaranteed a QWC. That might be more fitting anyways.
