Putintseva IN
Sevastova IN

[I]*after Top 20 WCs were cleared[?i]

Top Alt:

#1. (MDO) Shvedova


----
About Q : The cut right know (February 9) should be somewhere after Boserup , #119, which was her ranking at the deadline (3 weeks ago) .

Re: Doha MD List

How would Kerber and Siegemund expect to play the Fed Cup in Hawaii the previous weekend, and then here? The second day of the Fed Cup QF won't finish until Monday morning Doha time

Re: Doha MD List

Once the Germans played in Australia the weekend before Stuttgart. Kerber can get a late start, unlikely Laura gets IN Doha...

Yes, but Doha is a Saturday final, Stuttgart is Sunday. Also, the time zones (Hawaii to Doha v. Brisbane to Stuttgart) mean that another day is effectively lost.

Kerber and Pektovic lost their first matches in Stuttgart, which was not surprising. Goerges did win one match in Stuttgart, but she only played a dead doubles rubber in Brisbane.

Lastly, it would not have been acceptable for any top German player to miss either a Fed Cup semi-final or Stuttgart. This situation is different.

Kerber will have a BYE.

Siegemund could get In. There are 2 x Top 20 WCs after all, which almost never get used (except last 2 WTA season weeks). So if neither are used, she needs only one withdrawal.

But the 2nd round match would be on Wednesday and it will be a long flight from Hawaii to Doha.
And it's not 100% sure that Kerber will play this Fed Cup tie.

If Siegemund will play in the Fed Cup, there is no chance she could play here.

There are 86 Alts here and up until the one ranked #375 for Premiers . There always are dozens and even more for Internationals.

The MD Alt list is Not a preview of the Q list. NEVER ! Even if it's a Grand Slam it would not be very condescending. Check Australian Open for example .

And especially in a week where many will play Fed Cup (and automatically can't play qualies in tournaments) .

86? I wonder why they bother sometimes.

And yes, I had thought of the impact of the Fed Cup. I still think that maybe half the players listed will end up playing qualifiers after all is said and done, and more might have ended up playing here, if not for the Fed Cup.

We'll see in 2 weeks.

Also, some don't want to play qualies in a simple Premier (even if it's Doha) or anywhere else, especially as we're talking about Top 30->99 players or maybe might even go for the $100k Midland ITF instead .

Angie Kerber will not play Fed Cup vs USA in Hawaii

Tennis: "Schweren Herzens": Kerber sagt für Fed-Cup-Auftakt ab - FOCUS Online

Quote:
"Schweren Herzens": Kerber sagt für Fed-Cup-Auftakt ab

Angelique Kerber steht dem deutschen Fed-Cup-Team in der Erstrundenpartie gegen Gastgeber USA am 11./12. Februar auf Hawaii nicht zur Verfügung. „Ich habe schweren Herzens abgesagt. Vom Reisestress wäre es zu extrem geworden. Es ist zu weit weg“, sagte die Weltranglistenerste Kerber am Sonntag kurz vor Beginn der Australian Open in Melbourne (bis 29. Januar) und sprach von einer „sehr schwierigen Entscheidung“.

Kerber betonte allerdings, für das Halbfinale oder die Playoff-Partie um den Klassenerhalt im April zur Verfügung zu stehen. Von der Logistik wäre es für die 28-Jährige nicht möglich gewesen, direkt nach dem Fed Cup auf Hawaii ihre Turnierverpflichtung in Doha (ab 13. Februar) wahrzunehmen. „Ich habe tagelang überlegt und alles überprüft, aber es geht einfach nicht. Ich wäre nicht rechtzeitig dort gewesen“, berichtete Kerber.
Angie says she withdrew from Fed Cup vs USA with a heavy heart
The travel stress (Hawaii -> Doha) would be too extreme/much
Kerber said it was a very difficult decision, she talked long with Rittner

But Angie says she will be available to play the next tie ! (SF or WG 1 play-off)

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Rittner nominated Siegemund for Fed Cup. And of course Laura said yes

Tennis | Laura Siegemund: Laura Siegemund freut sich auf den Fed-Cup | Sport | SWR.de

Quote:
Und weiter geht es bei Ihnen mit dem Fed-Cup im Februar gegen die USA. Was bedeutet es für Sie, bei diesem Wettbewerb dabei zu sein?

Ich bin total happy, dass mich Barbara nominiert hat. Für mich ist das eine tolle neue Erfahrung. Ich hatte bisher nie die Möglichkeit, Fed-Cup zu spielen. Das war immer ein Traum. Ich bin da guter Dinge und freue mich tierisch darauf, auch dieses Mannschaftsfeeling mal mitzubekommen. Ich hab das immer von außen verfolgt, aber jetzt selbst dabei sein zu dürfen ist eine Ehre.

Wie geht das Jahr dann weiter?

Bis jetzt ist geplant, dass ich nach dem Fed-Cup nach Doha und Dubai weiter reise. Das ist natürlich wegen der Reisestrapazen nicht ganz einfach. Das ist ja das schwierige an dem Termin und der Fed-Cup-Location auf Hawaii. Danach geht es dann schon mit meiner USA-Tour los. Aber zunächst bleib ich noch ein paar Tage in Australien, um die tollen Trainingsbedingungen zu nutzen.
Laura is very happy that she got nominated for Fed Cup !
This will be her 1st ever Fed Cup tie. And it is a dream come true
Siegemund says it is an honor to play Fed Cup

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
