16 Byes In Qualies ?

Anyone know why there are so many byes in the qualifying singles of this tournament? I just counted. Of the 24 first round pairings, 16 were decided by byes. Seems sort of extreme to me. This means that 2/3 of the players in the second round of the qualies got there without playing a match. This is sort of unusual isn't it?

alot of players on the entry list withdrew for some reason
most of them would rather play qualies in the Bronx to prepare for next weeks US qualies.


pretty embarrassing to say the least, its quite a horror field.

Good luck to my favs

Also Els Callens won't be in the field as she's in doubles final in LA
either so Beier Ko goes into maindraw with a bye

can't think there will be any alternates or they wouldn't have given out 16 byes

Good luck to my favs

NY is nearer to Flushing Meadows than Toronto

And some more Canadians have been given a chance to qualify with 4 of them into final rd ...

when it was gonna be 12 qualifiers
it had to be 48 draw for 2 rds

24 would mean only 1 qual rd

32 would mean 3 qual rds and they dont have those in 64 draw events (qual pts are higher than 1st rd wins)
but they have 12 qualifiers so thats a non-starter.

they have to reduce number of qualifiers to 6.

Good luck to my favs
