Good choices. Alison, Jamie, and Sloane all deserve them and it's good to see them give Jill one after all the years she's been on tour.

thats what i mean, why should she get a advantage like that? you know what wild-cards are like to me,, no? ok i will explain

its like when you are in a bus queue and there's like 105 people waiting and you're at the very front of the queue but, when the bus approaches it doesn't stop directly at the stop, it comes to a halt about 10 yards before the stop, opens its doors and there's a mass push forward by everybody in the queue to get aboard.

now you'd think the people who were down the line and waiting for about 10-20 minutes less than the people like me at the front would wait for us to go and board first but, heck no! and what happens? you are left standing the whole way home for 8 miles

and i had 4 bags of shopping that day, mostly tinned goods

She's playing in a WC playoff starting today so she might still get one. But she didn't even get a QWC...I doubt she really cares all that much. Classes at Duke start in the next week or so, she's probably just focusing on college at this point.

I feel Alexa should have gotten one over Alison. Alison outside of her grass results and her ITF indoor title runs last season has done nothing. Her outdoor hardcourt has been not so good. Alexa has been doing very well this season. She is around 150 and she got snubbed. I am sure she would have liked to play the Dallas event, but now since she has Qualies to play she can't. BUT the good thing is that by going through qualies, Alexa has a good chance of picking up some more much needed points to raise her rank some more. Jill does not deserve one much either, but at the same time she has had a long career and is on the outs, the WC was given out of respect.
No Capra :eek::spit: honestly I think she deserves it after last year :shrug:.

SO happy they acknowledged Jill!!!

She's in the play-off.

Totally agree! Came back from injury to reach Quarterfinals Memphis as a qualifier, Qualied for Wimby with strong wins, recent straight set wins over Makarova (ranked 40ish), Qualied at Cincy with straight set wins over Johannsen, Mirza (ranked 60ish). Shocked. :fiery:

I like Alexa but I'd rather her play qualies. She's playing well enough to qualify which would give her a lot more points than potentially getting someone really tough in the first round.

I know this is on the guys side but how does Ryan Harrison need a WC to the event? He's ranked 78 right now? And Donald Young is 89? Am I missing something here?

Being a qualifier rather than getting placed randomly in the draw as a WC makes no difference on her chances of getting a better first round :tape: I do agree though, she should qualify and get some needed points.

They missed the cutoff on MD direct entry date. In other words, they rose to their respective rankings only recently.

That's...what ptkten meant. :confused:

WC + draw Serena = 5 pts
Q + draw Serena = 60 pts
