it could happen next week if Kvitova beats Cibulkova in the Madrid QF ... she is signed up to play Prague $100K next week ... just wondering when was the last time that we had a Top 10 WTA player play on the ITF tour :shrug:

Not sure about the answer to this, but Francesca entered a $50,000 in December 2004 (Bergamo, ITA)while ranked #19

Petra played in the Bahamas the week after IW too ;)

But it's not that out there. I'm not Czech, so pure spec, but it could involve a sponsor/promotional obligation from a local sponsor

If there were a tournament in Long Island, I'd play it regardless of what my ranking was :shrug: makes sense since she is Czech.

It was a 100k, not a 10k.

The majors are ITF events so the last time a top 10 player played an ITF event was probably at the 2011 AO. :lol:

World #12 Chanda Rubin played Salzburg $25,000 in December 1996 (beating unranked qualifier Mirjana Lucic in the final and winning in doubles with her. It was a Mirjana`s first tour event)

Nathalie Tauziat played $50,000 Val D`Ois in 1991 and 1992, ranked 13th and 14th.

Martina Hingis played $50,000 Prostejov in 1996, ranked 16th.
