Aleks got a tough draw with Hlavackova and Keothavong...Andrea is very up and down tho and I think Aleks crushed Anne last time they played last year. Falconi shouldn't be a problem if her after USO form hasn't changed.

Sharon has such a tough draw!! Parmentier, Rezai, Mirza/Oprandi :eek: wow not easy and on hard too.

Overall the 2 top quarters are much stronger! Still a good draw, good players

Strange she didn't get one, especially since she managed to take a set off Craybas last year. Maybe injury? I don't get why they're shunning the NZ players from one of only two events they have all year. Nobody is expecting them to do earth-shattering things, but they've got three or four girls who can at least take games off the other players and keep it relatively competitive. It makes more sense to at least give them a chance and the experience than it does to throw a wildcard to random choices like Rampre and Feuerstein.

Rampre and Puig were 1 and 2 out, so the director handed them the remaining wildcards.

A good post. Only 1 NZ player gets a QWC?

As usual, the tournament screws over the NZ players. Someone else needs to be in charge of these NZ tournaments but I don't know if it will ever happen. They offer WCs to Rampre, Feuerstein, Puig? WTF? There are always players 1 or 2 places out, but other tournaments still give wcs to the locals.

I've said it before. For a while now the people in charge of the two NZ tournaments have been screwing over the NZ players. They don't care about NZ tennis. They always "believe" that the overseas players "deserve" the wcs more than local players. There are no other tournaments in NZ where players can gain experience. Who cares if the players' aren't "ready" for this level? It's normal to give the locals wcs. Anyway, do they really think Emily is ready? Of course she isn't, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't be given a QWC.

We have no mens' ITF tournaments. We have 1 womens' 25k. The situation is getting worse and worse (we used to have a couple more of these). Going a step below the ITF, we used to have about 8 prizemoney tournaments. Now we have 2, maybe 3?

They had better offer some NZer a MD WC. Sacha doesn't count anymore. Maybe Westbury will get one? I wish Leanne decided to come back. She just showed that with a bit of matchplay she could still play some really good tennis.

I'm fed up with the whole situation. I wish I had the power to change things.

From twitter:

The other main draw wildcards have gone to Virginie Razzano of France and Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia.

Westbury is injured, hence why she she didn't play the NZ Champs.

I wish Leanne stuck around as well.
