I doubt Dokic will be given a WC here. Will Jarka need a WC to get in? I though she would make the cut off.

She'll make the cut off easily (although I suspect that she will defend her Hobart title this week)

Gone are the days of super strong Sydney fields now that Brisbane is a Premier and in a more convenient slot for the top players :sad:

Official Lists now Out:


“There are a number of Aussie players in the running for Apia International Sydney wildcards,” Watson commented.

“Fans could see Jelena Dokic and Matt Ebden in action, along with junior Wimbledon champions Luke Saville and Ashleigh Barty, who won the Australian Open wildcard play-off over the weekend.

“We will announce our wildcard recipients over the next few weeks and whilst they are likely to go to Australians, there is always the opportunity to award a marquee player a wildcard should they be looking for some additional matches before the Australian Open.”

The Apia International Sydney will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre from Sunday 8 to Saturday 14 January 2012.

Who says she will get a WC into Brisbane?

Shes from Ipswich (basically Brisbane, shes popular, she deserves it and there is no one else to take. Its a good tournament to start learn from the top players without getting demorilised (sydney has been by far the best premier tournament for the last 5 years). And eho else is there, Stosur gets in, Gajdosova's at Hopman Cup, Dokic is in Auckland, Rodionova will probably get a wildcard (but i hate the b****), then dellacqua has been awarded one and Ash will get the last one. There is no better Aussie and I doubt theyll give one to an international, thats sydneys job!

chingching
Dec 21st, 2011, 10:46 AM
Why not stay in Australia and play In the 3 tournaments if she can... MD or Qualies... In the first 2.

Because it's a waste. Lets say that she potentially loses first round in all of them, she gets 7 ranking points, and onlys has 7 tournaments left for the year. She wont develop enough points to break the top 400! If she does crack the top 400, it will only be by a little.

She can play only 12 WTA and ITF in 2012

She has only played one ranking event since turning 15 and is allowed to play 9 more before Apr 24th. It´s not a problem. But 15 year olds are only allowed to get one wild-card into WTA premier event.

Yes, it is not a regular tournament, it's the Year End Tour Championships for MM.
And don't forget she actually got WC for 2years in a row, 2009 & 2010, without winning any MM tournament.

(She WD from 2009, just 1 or 2weeks prior to the event and reward for that,
she got it again next year when she needed extra points to get into AO Seed) :rolleyes:
