Burnie has always been locals (and regular guests) + girls who played AO juniors.

About a tournament during the first week of AO... Every Australian remotely good enough would be ineligible to play. Also everyone else who played in Sydney/Hobart and AO qualifying would be ineligible.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

They don't want it to collide with AO, which is way more important

New Zealand could have a 25K That's kinda like the Nottingham thing although that is actually legitimate given the Surface change Still, I just think it's appropriate and many big 2 week tournaments do it

Isnt there usually a 25k in NZL at the beginning of the year has it been announced or is it not going on? I think maybe in 2013 it wasnt held as well though

It was held in Wellington in 2012 but didn't continue last year or this year. They could make a lot of money by having a large 64 player Qualifying Draw and having it in the 2nd week of AO

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett hit with Sachie Ishizu, Mayo Hibi and Channel Simmonds today from 12-1 PM in melbourne Maybe she has befriended her nemesis Anyway, nice to see her practicing Do you have to pay to practice or anything like that? Because Ying-Ying Duan has her own practice session so why wouldn't Anett try and go alone or with only 1 other person...

She's 15th alt according to the most recent update, so the chance is basically nonexistent now I guess

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Yes she will only get in if people are stuck in other tournaments playing Doubs or if people pull-out with injury... The not sures like Marcinkevica are all piling into Melbourne now Still, it's karma for not playing any of many tournaments after Bendigo.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

She withdrew from Sunderland, but is still on the list for Andrezieux-Boutheon at the moment. I guess maybe she wanted to make sure that she'll be in MD, although she would have been most likely in Sunderland as well

Re: Anett Kontaveit

If we are going just off P1s she is 14th in MD Some of the players are good but in top form she can beat them all This tournament will be the weakest it's ever been: wasn't the MD cut-off like 150 one year

Also, Anett may plan to play Paris Qualifying which she may have the ranking to do because IIRC it always had a low cut-off but that may have been when it was after Fed Cup

EDIT: It used to be very weak when it was after Fed Cup (327 in 2011) but it is still decently weak since it was before it (190 last year). I really hope she plays the 15K after Tallinn: 25 easy points which could, with a good showing in Andrezieux-Boutheon defending her Burnie points, push her quite close to the Top 200 Nothing really to defend after that till Moscow the week before RG

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that the Bendigo tournaments filled her event limit for the year and she couldn't play any more after them

No she could play 1 or 2 more depending on whether her 1st Round loss in Edinburgh counted
