Indeed. King and Rolle would be very welcome draws too. ;)

And sadly, I have to say, not too many players would mind playing Yari Shvedova right now considering her form. :awww:

I'm sure they wouldn't mind Poutchek, Rolle, O'Brien or Hsieh either. Or Castaño in her current shape.

I thought Alternate lists are updated with new rankings after 3 weeks the initial lists are out, or have they stopped going that? :confused:

They used to do that like until...7-8 years ago? :confused:

I think first GS to stop doing it was Wimbledon the year Marta reached RG quarterfinals and still had to qualify for Wimbledon (and of course she didn't :haha:)

Iveta will surely be playing doubles in the main draw, but for now she has to play qualies in singles. Tobi can help you with her position on the entry list.

Qualifying will start next Wednesday, with the draw becoming available on Tuesday.

I'm afraid she got down the rankings after the RG cut off, so that's probably not going to happen :hug:

I think her ranking for the Wimby Qs was in the 240s ? I think it will be close. However, last year they gave her a QWC and she ended up not needing it as she got in at the last minute. So, maybe the wimbledon committee will remember what happened last year and offer her another one (if she needs it ) :lol:.
