Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

Hey, everyone! I haven't been able to follow tennis during the last few days and I just found this huge thread about Kerber receiving a WC in Linz. Could someone please summarize briefly what this is all about? Thanks.

Oh, and Kvitova withdrew from Linz? What's the reason?

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Kerber has been given a wildcard into Linz a day after the draw was done. Lisa-Maria Moser withdrew, giving back her wildcard citing "personal reasons", but instead has been given a doubles wildcard, which looks kind of dodgy. The other controversy stems around Kerber as a 2012 year end top 10 player had already played 2 internationals this year. Supposedly she wanted to play Carlsbad but because they already had 4 top 10 players she had to play Washington instead, which means the tournament didn't count towards commitment (this is in the rulebook). This has only come to light now though.

This has left a lot of people unhappy. See various player's twitters (Ivanovic, Vekic etc.). Jankovic fans aren't happy because this obviously directly affects her chances of qualifying for Istanbul. Ivanovic fans aren't happy because she's been moved from a soft section of the draw to a tougher section of the draw as a result. Other people are disappointed with the way it has been handled with regards to it appearing like they have forced a player to hand back her wildcard.

Kvitova withdrew from Linz with a lower back injury. The tournament organiser hinted she won't play until Istanbul now, but this hasn't been confirmed (she's entered in Moscow).

Thanks a lot, ozza! Quite a curious story indeed. Can't wait to hear what officials have to say on this.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

This is extremely ridiculous . They already did some serious rule bending to allow her to play a third International this year, but apparently that was allowed under some obscure rule I doubt most players even knew about it. But they also forced a local wildcard to withdraw so they could give her wildcard to Kerber. This also is completely unnatural, as in any other circumstances a player who withdraws (wildcard or not) gets replaced by a lucky loser once the draw is out. Even looking at this Linz draw it's a joke .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

I made this thread a sticky thread so it appears on the top of this sub forum. I thought it'd be easier for anyone new here to see this thread so he/she can introduce himself/herself.

Can't you change the title in some form, so it includes "off-topic" in it. That's the problem with this thread, that unless you know, it looks like an identical copy of the Vikalume thread.
