First this is a tier 3, and also usually those who got a bye got the last stages the previous week....

maybe since Canberra is not longer played the same week, they want to give 2 more players the chance to play

so there's no set rule by the WTA for first round byes in tier 3's? it's solely the tournament's choice?

it think so
some torunament just try to attract higher ranked player with a bye for the top2 seeds, or even top4.
then she would just need 4 matches for the title

Re: Main Draw???

It was said a couple of years ago at the Gold Coast tournie that the top players didn't want the byes. They wanted the extra match play leading into Melbourne. Which is why they played here, so didn't want byes & missed match play. So the tournament organisers did what the players wanted. This was 2 or 3 years ago....
