Slams WC predictions

With Dodin safely into the top 100, I was wondering who might get the MDWC for the Aus Open.
And then I thought we could have a thread to try to predict the MD and QWC for every Slam!

Re: Slams WC predictions

So for this Australian Open, the MDWC could go to:
- Razzano: Given her form and age, and it would probably be her last.. and a waste (as much as I loved her!)
- Georges: pretty underwhelming results as of late
- Hesse: I could see her getting it despite average results.
- Lim: Nah...
- Ferro: Could get it.
- Reix: Nope.
- Andrianjafitrimo: Maybe my pick because nobody really stands out and she has the most potential out of all the youngish players.

For the QWC, assuming Hesse gets in the MD:
- Lim: Will she get in the MD?
- Ferro: Probably her if she doesn't get the MD.
- Reix: I don't see her getting it over Ferro or Tessah.
- Andrianjafitrimo: If she doesn't get the MDWC, she should definitely get the QWC in my opinion.

Re: Slams WC predictions

I think Tessah Andrianjafitrimo deserves it , she's the best prospect among all those you cited here

time to think about the future, I like Virginie but she's doing nothing great now so time to think about the future!

we need new and fresh blood! we saw in fed cup that we need new players who are able to play both single and doubles

I think Tessah has this profil.

If I as fft member I would focus on adding this new blood in french tennis along with Océane Dodin

stop with "le copinage" who produce no result give the yougsters their chances and belief!

Re: Slams WC predictions

I am not sure there is still an switch for QWC on women side.
But for sure, for MDWC, i would chose between Tessah, Myrtille and Amandine. But with the 0&0 Tessah lost in RG, i am not sure they will try again so soon. But i truly would love that.
About QWC, if Tessah does not get MQWC, i hope she will get QWC. Because others should be in except Fiona&Sherazad.
And i hope Tessah will be in the cut of Q for others GS, just after AO.

Re: Slams WC predictions

Me too. She has been having some decent results lately (including this week), so I could see her get in the top 200 within a few months.

I still think that they might give the MDWC to Razzano... because she is the highest ranked player, might be playing her last year, and is a former top 20 player. That, and the fact that no one else has really shown a lot of promise unfortunately, except for Tessah, but that 6/0 6/0 at RG will hurt her chances for sure.

I also think that Ferro might get the QWC is they award one. Unless Hesse fails to make the cut. It will be Ferro or Tessah IMO.

Re: Slams WC predictions

So Myrtille Georges gets the MDWC for the 2017 Australian Open. No QWC it seems.
Given her recent results, I am a bit surprised. But yeah, who else...

Re: Slams WC predictions

still happy for her, she has qualities, especially on clay, too bad she's not having better results

Tessah must win a 25K or better better being worthy of a WC in slam

this 6-0 6-0 was so unreal

Re: Slams WC predictions

Well, it was her first MD appearance in GS. And she said she did absolutely all wrong, she did not want to listen to daddy coach, and made all bad decisions. It is happening. It will be a huge lesson for all others time.

Re: Slams WC predictions

Roland Garros is in one month only! Let's see if we can guess who will receive the precious 6 MDWC and 7 QWC this year awarded to French players every year (feel free to correct me if I am wrong about the numbers).

MDWC:
  • Razzano: should get one, although after her Strasbourg points come off, she will be... close to retirement? Her last French Open?
  • Hesse: Stagnating big time, but the highest ranked and FFT darling so she will get one.
  • Ferro: Good results as of late, young, WC for sure.
  • Georges: Should get one despite a slow start of the year.
  • Reix: Has been playing well lately, should get one. Her first one, I think? Would really be deserved.
  • Lim: Has barely played lately. I personally would give her a QWC, not a MDWC. If she doesn't get it... it means the 6th one will be up for grabs. Paquet or Tessah?
  • Paquet: Decent season so far, a bit older than Tessah, has won WTA qualifying matches, my money is on Chloé.
  • Andrianjafitrimo: Still a work in progress and after last year's fiasco, a QWC sounds more probable. But she is still higher than most in the race...

QWC:
  • Lim: If she doesn't get a MDWC and she is fit to play (has she been injured?)
  • Andrianjafitrimo/Paquet: Whoever doesn't get a MDWC
  • Lechemia: Timid results this season so far but should get one on ranking.
  • Tan: I mean, her ranking is higher than many, so I guess she will get one.
  • Yerolymos: Young and promising-ish.
  • Feuerstein: Still injured I guess, maybe even retired??
  • Brouleau: Should get one, unless she is injured? Hasn't played in a long time.
  • Arcangioli: She has been playing, but her results have been pretty underwhelming.

    If the FFT decides to take risks (but they rarely do...), they could give one or two QWC to:
  • Ponchet: Just because she has never received one?
  • Albie: Great results lately, albeit in 15k tournaments. Still, seems to have improved.
  • Gravouil: Was kinda promising last year, but has had a bad season so far. Pretty unlikely.
  • Cakarevic: See Gravouil.
  • Heise: Can have great weeks, but doesn't play enough!
  • Juniors like Mansouri, Burel, Bencheikh, Morlet, Léonard, Halemai, Parry?

Thoughts, opinions??

Re: Slams WC predictions

MDWCs

- Hesse: no amazing results but member of French FC team
- Ferro: will enter the top200 next week, playing WTA and qualifying for main draws, steady progress
- Paquet: steady progress as well, mixing ITF and WTA tournaments. Needs one more good result to be a lock
- Georges: 2nd round last year. Needs one more good result on clay to be a lock
- Andrianjafitrimo: last year was a disaster but she s playing well. I think she ll receive the WC if she enters the top250 before the FFT awards the WC.
- Razzano: I don t think she deserves it this year, even for her swan song (even Foretz and Johansson ended in qualies for their last FO) but I doubt they ll give it to Sherazad Reix instead of her.

I hope they won t award it but a WC for Sharapova will close the discussion for Georges or Andrianjafitrimo

QWCs

- Reix: deserves it based on ranking and results
- Lim: don t get why she already got so many WCs but she ll get something if healthy
- Lechemia: deserves it based on ranking and last year results
- Tan: based on ranking. Not sure she has the required skills to win a Q match
- Yerolymos: young prospect
- Cakarevic: won the French closed junior championships last year
- Albie, Ponchet, Suvrijn, Gravouil, Cascino, Heise, Salas, Morlet... Hard to say. I d give it to Ponchet

My list would be :
-Ferro
-Andrianjafitrimo
-Hesse
-Paquet
-Reix
-Georges

sorry dont have time To explain my choices but I ll do it later.

QWC :

- Lechemia
- Tan
- Yerolymos
-Cakarevic
-Albie
-Gravouil
-Burel (as promising junior )

Razzano and Lim must go into qualies too many wc given to Lim. Virginie can qualify by her own. I believe in her.

Re: Slams WC predictions

Razzano will lie its her last year like usual and get a WC.. She's done it couple of times already. Sad lady. Ferro deserves a MDWC also Reix could get one for her Clay 25k title. Hesse will get one for playing Fed Cup, Andrianjafitrimo will probably grab another one and I'd like to see Arcangioli, Paquet also... Georges will get one because of win vs McHale last year, but she's dreadfully bad.

Re: Slams WC predictions

Ferro has been surprisingly good lately. Well as good as one can be with her limited game. Scheduling for WTA and getting some decent results, even on hard. Paquet is a similar, but less successful story. MDWC to both. Tessah A to get another MDWC also.

Noll for a QWC? A random Frenchie who has been doing well in the lower ITFs, albeit indoor hard and fast surfaces.

Marina + Angie + Lizette + Dasha + Jade + JJ

Re: Slams WC predictions

Nothing for Sherazad Reix despite winning a 25k on clay?! Is there some bad blood between her and the FFT?
She s far better than Arcangioli and Tan...

Same for Lechemia.

And to put 2 alternates for Q WC really means the door is closed...

The MD WC for Lim is ridiculous...

Re: Slams WC predictions

I agree about Reix, it is really weird. So weird that I am thinking maybe she is injured? She wasn't in Cagnes or St Gaudens, so that would be my guess. She has already received QWCs from the FFT before if I'm not mistaken, so I don't think there's bad blood between them.

The rest of the WC? Honestly, I kinda agree with most.

  • As much as I like Razzano, she has been BAD for months and struggled to win sets so I'm kinda happy they are letting her play qualies this year
  • Originally I didn't think Lim should get one, but she had a decent run in Cagnes, so why not.
  • Tessah, Ferro, Paquet, Hesse, Georges = deserved (not that any has been incredible lately, but no one else is better!)
  • For QWC, I can only think of Lechemia missing. She hasn't played/won much recently, so it's not really a shocker. Albie et Ponchet totally deserve it - and it is their first time I think! Arcangioli and Tan... well... it is not like we have other amazing choices...
  • So happy they took a chance on 16 year old Mansouri!! Even if she doesn't win a match, it should be a great experience for her, and after her G1 win a couple weeks ago, she deserves it!
  • The one really questionable QWC to me is Suvrjin. Nothing against her, but she has gotten WCs in the past, and let's be honest, her career is not really going anywhere...
