A little closer than I'd like to see against a player outside of the top 500 (6-4 6-2), but we'll take it.

Maureen will also be in the Main draw no matter what. Even if she loses, she'll be given the lucky loser spot because she would be the highest ranked player to lose in the last round of qualifying.:bounce: Hopefully she goes and qualifies anyway though...more points for her.

I'm hoping she qualifys and then plays another Qualifier in the First Round.

I'm hoping she qualifies and plays Tanasugarn. On clay, that's like drawing a Moroccan wildcard:p

Is Tanasugarn really bad on clay? I know that Drake beat her in Miami before also so maybe that would be cool.

I'm quite glad to see Mauren win some matches to be honest... it's really about time. ;)

Yes. Tammy is THAT bad on clay. Although she has made 3rd round of the French open before. - She was voted one of the worst clay court players in the top 150. :o

Habiba Ifrakh? :p

Dont underestimate Ifrakh who already beat Kristie Boogert when she was in the top 100

Maureen lost to Sybille Bammer 6-1 6-3, which is pretty awful IMO. I'd like to think she just bagged the match because she knew she would be a lucky loser, but I really doubt it...

The good news is that as a lucky loser she will play Emilie Loit, who is coming off of an injury and wasn't in very good form to begin with. Loit also has the pressure of being the defending champion, something she has never experienced before. Maureen will have to pick up her form for sure, but it was one of the better opening round matches she could've hoped for. GO MO!

how do you determine who is going to be a lucky loser in the main draw, is it the player who goes the furthest in the qualies draw with the highest ranking??

Whoever has the highest ranking out of all those who lost in the last round of qualifying will get the LL spot (provided somebody withdrew from the main draw beforehand).

Maureen actually plays fellow lucky loser Adriana Serra Zanetti in the 1st round - both will be desperate to win that one.

Here's where the qualifiers and lucky losers ended up in the Rabat draw :

LL M Drake v LL Ad. Serra Zanetti
Q Z Yan v S Uberoi
Q J Dokic v L Kurhajcova
Q S Bammer v E Loit
Q O Savchuk v T Tanasugarn
