Sui-Wei Hsieh is not in qualifying draw for Wimbledon, but she was the next player into the draw, does anyone know if she has got into the draw due to Pierce's withdrawal?

She did. Notice how there's a 25th and 26th seed. I'm pretty sure that means that Azarenka still used a wildcard to get in and two seeds were promoted.

I know Azarenka didn't need a WC. But it looks like two seeded players in the singles qualifying draw got promoted, and I'm pretty sure that would mean that Azarenka had to use her wildcard because Vinci and Pierce withdrew so late.

For the moment, Pierce's withdrawal is not official even if we exepect it.
