Will Eden Marama get WC?

She isn't playing now. Is she injured?

Shelley Stephens will probably get her umpteenth WC here, and give someone a free ride into the next round.

Hopefully Eden Marama is fit enough by then, and they give her one :)

Yes, against Shelly, and IMO, Eden an Shelly are the only one worthy of the WC.
Marina could wait a bit longer, she is still a junior. I guess Eden will play qualifying, since she was lower ranked compared to Shelly and Marina got a WC.

Shelley Stephens had more experience and been played the Tour for a long time... but Eden Marama are more talent especially at doubles with her sister like Dominikovic sisters.

If I were tournament director and I would give the WC to Eden Marama as she's a better player on hardcourt. Shelley Stephens's best surface is clay.

Marina had some huge results in Fed Cup this year. She beat Wynne Prakusya (ranked in top 200 at the time) and lost 9-7 in the third set to Suchanan Vitrapesert (who was ranked just inside or outside of the top 200 at the time). Those are great results for any 15 year old, and clearly New Zealand tennis officials are shitting themselves as they don't have anyone else with the slightest possibility of top 250 singles potential.

She also just got smoked by Alexa Glatch in the 2nd round of the Orange Bowl (big junior tournament yesterday):o so inconsistency may be her big issue. Either way she doesn't have a prayer at winning a round unless she draws another New Zealander or a lucky loser (I don't think she could beat a qualifier at this stage, or at the very least would have to be at her absolute best to do so), but hopefully she puts up a good showing and shows what she can do in the future.

Mary Pierce has got a wildcard and the final one will either be given to a high-ranked European player or #1 NZ player Shelley Stephens :)
