Did she get in? She is not listed as a WC and she doesn't have any ranking.

Thanks! :)

Protected ranking.

Oh.. ok.

As some of you may know, I'm new around here so I didn't even know you could have a protected ranking.
Thanks for the info.

A player is only eligible for a Special Ranking if she has been out for at least six months and at most two years, but in the case of maternity-leave, she has to play her first tournament within a year of giving birth (30th March 2009). That's why Harkleroad played here, though she doesn't intend to play again until July.
