Re: Qualifying Draw!
Whitehead having a WC to this event, which has an otherwise stacked qualifying draw, should be raising some eyebrows. She must have paid the organizers like 10,000$ USD. The only way it's acceptable is if no other ranked player wanted the WC, which is highly doubtful.
Anyway, i know one person who's very happy Whitehead is in the draw. Emmanuelle Gagliardi.
