What's wrong with Rossana's rank, except that it's sad to see her that low?

I think he meant that she is capable of much more.

It is pretty good, but all the qualifiers happened to have great draws, all against winnable opponents.

that explanation is too easy for me ...
Kleinova and Ruano-Pascual are bigger names on the Tour. And some results of the losses (e.g. Rita Grande) are horrifying/horrible for these md-payers I guess.

So good luck to all the qualifiers who made it into r2 (and that isn't only dedicated to ALG )

just to bring this thread back to the top, Experimentee (til I get an answer ... )

2 qualifiers, 1 wild card and even a lucky loser made it to r3 !!!
(just to be provocative)



Marta Marrero (Q) def. Cara Black 7-6(6) 6-1 (Cara a no-name ????)

Iveta Benesova (LL/Q) def. Maggie Maleeva 7-5 6-4 (what about that ???)

Barbora Strycova (Q) def. Eleni Daniilidou 3-6 6-4 6-1 (Eleni even a leser no-name for you ??? )

Sesil Karatancheva (WC) def. Magui Serna 6-4 2-6 7-5 (even a WC ranked 282 tops a top-25 player)



and please don't tell me these aren't amazing reults !
A LL or at least one Q in 4th rd in the 2nd highest Tier 1. Surprising facts for me. Not for you ?

go
Aga_DanI- BeLInDA- CArO_Jelena

Angelique Kerber | Ana Ivanovic | Annika Beck
