Not looking good. The only reason why I still think we'll have a debutante or two is because it would be too much of a coincidence for all of them to crash out.

In order of what I believe are their chances to qualify:

Dzehalevich
Ijima (?)
Hrdinova
Dentoni
Kulikova

I have no idea how Dzehalevich plays, but considering Ondraskova is a clay specialist by her own admission and played "wall" against Camerin (!) the only time I saw her back in 2006, I'd say Dzehalevich may have a decent shot.

Ijima vs Fujiwara is a coin toss, since all Japanese play pretty much the same.

Hrdinova is a towering big server who probably isn't better than her current ranking. Puchkova may DF her way to a loss against anyone, but I doubt Hrdinova has enough game even to stay on the match long enough for that.

Dentoni will either get whomped or choke.

Kulikova is up against an in-form player who was RU at Wimbledon juniors in 2006 IIRC.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Eva Hrdinova is the sole grand slam debutante of Wimbledon 2008.

Grassonkova.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

And I don't think she will last past the first round. We will have to wait at least until USO for a notworthy debut.

- very interesting group of debutantes at 2007 RG. Big one too, but there were more at the 2006 AO, which is odd considering how the feeling I had at the time was that the rankings were fossilized, and that "personnel turnover" in the #80-120 ranking range (where many Slam debutantes are ranked at the time of their first GS MD) is now much faster than it was back then.

And three of them were already seeded just a year later. Not bad at all...

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

OP: edited to add info about Hrdinova's debut at Wimbledon. I'll see if I can begin editing in updated info on the other player's career best rankings and about those who made their career best performance at this year's Wimbledon as well.

USO entry list is out and there are no debutantes in the MD list. Lapushchenkova may still make it in, though.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Possible Slam debutantes already in the qualifying round, and their opponents, if known:

Pivovarova (vs M. Johansson)
Lapushchenkova (vs WC Ahn)
WC Ahn (vs Lapushchenkova)
Vögele
Silva (vs Vinci)
Dzehalevich (vs de los Rios)
Larsson (vs Shvedova)
Coin
Bratchikova (vs Glatch)
Larcher de Brito (vs Olaru)
Duque Mariño (vs Camerin)

Ahn vs Lapushchenkova means we're sure to have at least one debutante.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Pivovarova
Vögele
Ahn
Duque Mariño
Zhang
Coin

Duque Mariño in as a LL, and Ahn got a WC into qualies, but both count as debutantes acording to the OP's criteria.

Not a terribly exciting bunch, but judging from previous years (2005-2007), the USO debutantes rarely are so.

Interesting that Coin will make her debut at the USO, instead of as a RG MD WC recipient like all other French players.

It seems Coin has spent most of her career playing college tennis in the US, so this makes some more sense now.
