Begins tomorrow.

2 wildcards up for grabs in the women's, 4 for the men :rolleyes:

Don't know if they are only inviting a few players and splitting them up, or just doing an open 32 player draw and playing it through to the final.

Top 8 Seeds will be:

#1 Amanda Keen (247)
#2 Karen Paterson (426)
#3 Rebecca Llewellyn (445)
#4 Sarah Coles (467)
#5 Anna Smith (471)
#6 Anna Fitzpatrick (499)
#7 Emily Webley-Smith (563)
#8 Danielle Brown (609)

Next to be seeded: Olivia Scarfi, Julia Bone, Jade Curtis

If Jane O'Donoghue plays, she would be seeded #2.

Brits not playing:

Georgie Stoop (injury)
Sarah Borwell (already got WC into Qualies)
Natasha Khan (already got WC into Qualies)
Elizabeth Thomas (playing Liverpool Exhibition event)
Rebecca Fong (playing in States)
Melissa Berry (playing in Portugal)
Lucy Warburton (playing in Portugal)

I think Amanda will get one and maybe Anna Fitzpatrick or Emily will get the other 1. Hopefully the remaining TBC WC will go to another play-off player.

Amanda should have got a Q wildcard her grass form is usually great.

I hope she wins and Emily is runner up.

Isn't Amanda next-in for the Qualifying draw? If so, she will get into the draw with her ranking (as Zvonareva and Golovin are not officially off the list yet) and won't need the playoff wildcard, so there should be a chance for others as well.

Starts tomorrow:

Section 1:

Karen Paterson vs Olivia Scarfi
Anna Hawkins vs Julia Bone
Abbie Probert vs Amanda Elliot
Katherina Brown vs Emily Webley-Smith

Section 2:

Rebecca Llewellyn vs Deborah Armstrong
Jessica Jackson vs Jade Curtis
Jade Windley vs Naomi Broady
Yasmin Clarke vs Anna Fitzpatrick

Section 1 will be Karen vs Amanda/Emily for a QWC probably. Jade C will probably reach the final of the other section against either Naomi B or Anna F.

I wish Jocelyn Rae would of played! I think her game could be devastating on grass! Anyway, at least it looks like there is a good chance one of our teens will get the WC! :D

the scotsman and the herald are both reporting that karen has made it into qualies after reaching the last 4. i dont know if this is because they have misunderstood the rules, or that they extra remaining wildcard will go to the highest ranked losing semi-finalist, which would be karen if emily wins?

hoping she beats emily tomorrow to make it certain lol!!

Hope they're right :o

I am really hoping Karen and Rebecca win not only because I prefer them, but also because I was worried that if either of them lost, they still may not be favoured over possibly Curtis or Elliott for the final wildcard. Rebecca's been snubbed before, and Karen's had a couple chances (and is older than Jade and Amanda), so I could see them being overlooked as Jade and Amanda would have lost to the eventual qualifiers of the WC's, not Karen and Becky. Hopefully I'm wrong though :) If Karen and Becky win, I'm hoping Emily gets the final spot, but again, wouldn't be surprised if Anna Fitzpatrick gets favoured. There's also still Anna Smith to account for possibly, if she's fit by Wimbledon and the organizers feel like making an exception given that she missed the play-off because of injury.
