I don't understand some of The WTA Rules & Conditions!
Why is she very fortunate? perhaps you need to go and check how the commitments are done, you know from what your ranking is 6 weeks before the event, but I am sure you knew that.
She got into the tournament on her OWN ranking, it is a field of 56 with 44 Direct entries, perhaps if you go and have a look at this thread, you might see that she wasn't the last player excepted into the field.
There is NO gold exempt status required for this event and for that matter next week either (amelie Island), so why don't you concentrate on something else, because you can whinge about it as much as you like, but atleast get your facts right next time.
I am sure everyone will be on there high horse when she gets WC's into Berlin and Rome, all I have got to say eat shit when it happens.
You guys don't seem to have much to do with your time then have a cry every time she gets a WC, but I don't see you complaining when she withdraws from an event, you know one of those events in which she has direct entry and some other player takes her spot. I mean it has only happened 20 times in the past 2 years, so you have had plenty of time, but I am yet to see it.
