The top entrants for the Surbiton 25k the previous week would definitely hope to be in the qualifiers for Birmingham the following week.

This includes:

Kristina Brandi (who always plays Birmingham)
Zsofia Gubasci
Jenny Hopkins

and in the doubles, Kim Grant & Abigail Spears.

As more top quality entrants appear on the Surbiton list, this will give more clues!

Rita Grande's definitely going to be in Birmingham too.

Tauziat will be a guest of honour - dont know if that means she'll be playing.

Wild cards will tell us who has and hasnt been awarded wild cards for wimbledon, as pre-qualifying takes place this week.

If Anne can grab another couple of titles (or elena too) she can proably make main-draw, the cut-off is usually around 110-120.

Qualies can go down to 300, so Hannah and Jane probably wont need one by the time this event comes round - that would be great as it would allow two other players in.

I'd go for:

Elena + Anne (duh!)
Julie (3rd round last year)
Lucie (usually plays well here, last year pushed Dokic all the way)

Qualies:

Jane + Hannah (if they need them)
Sarah Borwell
Helen Crook

if Hannah and/or Jane get in by right then give them to:

Jo Moore and Melanie South

If Anne & Elena were to get in automatically then i would give the main draw wildcards to;
1. Julie Pullin 2. Lucie Ahl 3. Jane O'Donoghue 4. Hannah Collin

For Qualies;
1. Helen Crook 2. Jo Moore 3. Sarah Borwell 4. Katie O'Brien

One other thing about qualifying. It clashes with the final two days of Surbiton, so this could lead to a few late withdrawals.

although allowances are usually made. Last year Granville and Lee both got to play, although admittadly that did have something to do with the rain!!!

They wouldn't delay a player's 1st round qualifying match until Monday, unless there was rain in Birmingham. It would mess up the schedule too much.
