A player is on the entry list for a tourney. With all the SRs and other stuff, it's just a secure place in the quallies. But she gets a wildcard, or gets told she's gonna get a wildcard and the quallies start without her. Then a badass Gold Exampt player comes along, takes the WC as per rules, and the original player is left out of the tournament.

Yes, I'm talking about the Iva/Meghan situation. No, it didn't happen (edited).

I'm just interested if this is a valid scenario. If it is, well, it needs to be changed - it's a load of bull no matter who the players involved are.

Wait, Meghan asked for a wildcard at the expense of Iva?

No, that probably didn't happen, even though it looked like it at one time. I'm just asking whether it would be possible.

Meghan used her gold wildcard thing and Iva got a regular wildcard :)

Iva isn't a WC

she just got in as others withdrew
Schett and Rittner got ordinary WC's
Shaughnessy got the gold exempt WC

But why did Iva get in and not Raymond who has a higher ranking or even Eleni?

I have read Iva also in , in Zurich.

Now my question: Why Nathalie #24 isn't in? Eleni #21 and Raymond #22 have to play Quali too :confused:

Oct 6th, 2002, 06:10 PM
Eleni at sep 16 was ranked #24 one place behind Iva
Nathalie was #26 then

We all have been confused about things that happened there ...
Why September, 16th?

You see I'm curious ;)

there is one initial list of commitments
then about 3 weeks after this date there is an update ranking
where players in qualifying move up or down the list

ones in maindraw remain in maindraw
but ones in qualifying go up or down

I don't think it's fair to take rankings from three weeks ago.
One more question, where will I find those old rankings? ;)

Oct 6th, 2002, 06:18 PM
i have them ;)

Oct 6th, 2002, 06:18 PM
And how will I get them? :angel:
