How did WTA get Jen to play? Is she going to tank??

No less an authority than TBE, said that the WTA "forced" Jennifer to enter the tournament. How did they do this, and did they (or the tournament) have to pay her a guaranteed appearance fee? Just wondering about how this kind of situation works. She obviously had no prior intention or desire of playing here.

Hard Designation, thats how
Jen didnt apply for a WC, but the WTA were forced to dig deep to get a top player after Venus, Lindsay withdrew

so it was Jen who was the Top GOLD EXEMPT player on list

Kim, Justine aren't Top of that list so don't count.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

She's just taking one for the team.. IMO she should be playing this one anyway so I hope she takes it seriously, a title is a title. I guess we'll see how she reacts.

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

b. Hard Designations
Each Top 10 Gold Exempt player is subject to one (1) Hard Designation by the Tour. Refusal to accept a Hard Designation will warrant an automatic $25,000 fine.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Please withdraw Jenny.

$25,000? Pff... that's nothing.

Further explanation please...

What is the Gold Exempt list and how players are ranked? Why was Jennifer chosen?

lmao @ WTA

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

They actually have a rule that forces players to play? Oh well, what's another injury to the WTA Tour, right? It's like a war draft. When your number gets drawn, you have to sign up immediately. Should you refuse, failure to comply results in getting shot, erm, fined.

Was this what happened to Kim in Toronto or did she always intend on playing that tournament voluntarily?

I agree with Mase, she should have been playing Moscow anyway, so it doesn't bother me. That's the rules with the Gold Exempt. Furthermore, I haven't seen Jen tank a match since her "dark days" and I don't expect to see it any time soon. If she is physically able (shoulder), she will play.

when did the wta let her know about this decision?

If she wasn´t in Europe ..she must be really upset.
