Re: Grand Slam debutantes

And our debutantes are, for now:

Lapushchenkova
Jovanovski
Hlavackova

We'll see if any more get in as LLs.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson

Yes, she is. Thanks for noticing that. One of the WCs wasn't awarded so she got in as first MD Alt (at the time). Previous post edited accordingly.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

I've just added this year's English Open debutantes. I've also decided to revise the stats to include MD WCs (currently collecting the required data), which means that I'll have to develop some sort of tacky colour scheme.

For now, I've begun setting apart those debutantes who got in on ranking by putting their names in blue.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

OP fully updated, with all MD WCs added in red and players who got in on ranking marked in blue.

I've also updated many career high rankings and career best performances at the Slams.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Possible debutantes already through to the qualifying round (with something like 3 out of 4 of the 2nd round's matches still to be played):

Minella
Rodionova the Lesser
Pliskova, Cristina (there's a few ys and zs in there, but I couldn't be arsed to check the spelling)
Tatishvili

[boring writeup]
Minella and Rodionova the Lesser face off, so we're already guaranteed a Slam debutante from qualies. Minella is very good looking, but above all seems to be very determined (as anyone who has watched her matches can attest): she has already survived several major injuries and clawed her way back up the rankings more than once, always trying to improve her (unfortunately) limited physical and technical abilities. So I'll be rooting for her.

Tatishvili is up against Ondraskova. Underdog, but still with a shot.

Cristina Pliskova, from what I've read, plays a somewhat extreme game, so it's difficult to predict how she'll fare against the horrid LDL. She may self-destruct in 40 minutes or win the match, the former being more likely.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Minella is a good story.

Overall, looks like we are headed toward another not that interesting group of debutantes.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Already through from Q:

Minella

Still alive in the qualifying round:

Molinero
Namigata
Peers
Fichman
Marino
Falconi
Luzhanska
Panova

Two matchups between possible debutantes, so we're assured of at least a couple more.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Marino wins the Battle of the Canucks vs überpusher Fichman. Falconi and Peers also through. The USO remains the only Slam in which QD WCs actually make it to the MD.

Luzhanska down a set to Kucova the Elder.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Of all the useless Aussie WC we have seen through the years in Melbourne, Peers never got one before and had to make her debut in NYC?

I have spread my dreams under your feet

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Namigata got in and is our first debutante.

From the WCs, Lauren Davis and Caroline Garcia will also be playing their first GS MD.
