When is a lucky loser allowed to play and when is it a walk over?

if a player pulls out and they have not played yet then a Lucky Loser may take their spot. So if the player has a bye in round one but then pulls out...the LL goes straight to Rnd. 2........... I think. ;)

but if the player has played a match and needs to default in their 2nd match it's a walk-over .......... I think. ;)

usually they will rework the draw... depends on when the seeded player pulls out. If it's after the other players have started to play, then yeah, the LL should go straight to r2, but if it's after the draws made, but matches haven't been played, then the next higest ranked player will take the seed who pulled out's place in the draw: ie like with Daniela taking Venus' place in the Antwerp draw.

Yeah, they've pretty much covered it. On occasion in Qualifying draws if there is no alternate present to fill the spot, or it is too close to the start of Q play, they will just receive a w/o.
