Yeah Melanie!!! Hope she can pick up where she left off in Quebec City last year. And yes, I do hope she continues to play for Canada, unlike Beier Ko who now plays for Singapore (although i don't blame her if the funding is better)
Actually im wrong, Dokic took it, it was Piedade withdrawing that gave Mel a spot in the draw! She would ahve been in qualies anyway, with a solid chance to qualify!
And don't worry, i don't see her playing for Portugal in the near future, even the far future
I thought Gloria got a spot in the Pre-qualifying because of Piedade's withdrawal. That was in the post when the pre-qualifying draw was posted. But your explanation makes more sense, as Silva and Gloria were the two WC's.
