Has anyone heard on how they will distribute them this year? eg.to Germans or non-Germans, with the field being so strong you would think 1 wildcard to German and 2 to high ranked non-germans.

Also let's hope that with being a tournament director in Filderstadt that Anke Huber can give a wildcard to Babsi Schett;)

I reckon Rittner has one in the bag!!!

Great performance last week, plus her and Huber are pretty good friends! Huber was watching all her matches at the French Open

Rittner and Majoli probably - although if say Bovina beats Lindsay today and thus would miss qualifying - she would stand a good chance fo getting one..

i think
Rittner
Schett
Majoli

but i more excited to see qualifying Wc, cause all germans would need a WC for qualifying too

Müller
Barna
Rösch
and hopefully one of my favorit juniors (Grönefeld, Petkovic)

1 WC could go to Meghann Shaughnessy, which doesn't wanted to play there.
She isn't in the doubles draw, but my friend saw her there today. She can't be in main draw with her ranking, so...

I would wonder if she went from Moscow to F'stadt just for doubles....strange!:confused:

My friend, who is in F'stadt smsed me that Meghann has a GOLD EXEMPT! That's something else than a WC as far as I know

Gold Exempt List consists of players (20) with a certain status. It means some additional benefits and some additional duties for these players.

One if not the most important one is to get unlimited supply of wildcards. Each tournament has a certain number of wildcards - Tier II events as Filderstadt have 3 WC - to their hands. However one of these 3 WC is given away not by tourney organizers but by WTA.

Meghan Shaughnessy got this WC (the Gold Exempt WC in this case) for Filderstadt.


So to sum that up - Shaughnessy entered by wildcard. It's the one AnnaK doesn't need now. :sad:

OOPS ! Hey u Germans all here ! Wie isses !?! ;)

Shaughnessy could have replaced GOLD EXEMPT AnnaK,
I think that they replace EXEMPT players by players of the same category and Anna was named a withdrawal today ; if Iva is no GOLD EXEMPT she would have not been able to replace

Iva shouldn´t play at all as the seeds in quallies are ranked lower than her

Meg could have replaced Serena

OOPS ! Alpha, 2 Dumme, 1 Gedanke ? ;)

It seems that Pierce isn´t playing either, so maybe Iva, Panova and other girls could be in due to their withdrawals as well.

Remember that Serena, Mary and Anna are out now.
