Wta Should Do The Same As Itf And Provide The Acceptance List For Qualis Together With
The Md List. Need Someone To Convey The Message To The Wta So We The Fans Can Enjoy
The Prospects For Each Tournament Fully!!!

Thank you very much for your reply. I guess that we will have to wait...
Hope that in the future the WTA will provide more information to us

If mods here were OK with it I had no problem posting it. Blame WTA for that :o

Are the mods against you who knows answer the Questions now? Other years it has been answered... But TBE now don't answer anything...

Btw, Thanks for Heidi info :)

But it seems the Brisbane Q-List is more a secret than the Sydney List... who's posted now...

Q-Draw will be out at about 9am CET on December 27th. 8 days!

Q-Draw will be out at about 9am CET on December 27th. 8 days!

I still believe that the WTA should disclose the acceptance list together with the MD acceptance list before the draws are out, similar
what the ITF does. If we the fans push for this information it will happen. Hope that someone with more experience than us would take the lead to get this to be implemented. Thank you.

Jorn
Dec 19th, 2012, 07:27 PM
Yes, when Sydney Q-List is known, I can't see why Brisbane List is a secret... :o


Also now with Williams has had surgery she may be Out, what we won't know about much before the Draw... Even Ithink she will play...

Welcome!!!! Everybody is in agreement regarding the Quali acceptance list of the WTA tournaments. Hope that the WTA executives take note
and provide a resolution to this issue. Quali Draw should be out tonight
and first match tomorrow should start at 10:00 AM Brisbane time.

Quallie days are my favourite days to go. No crowds, a chance to scope out future main draw players, get good photographs without people in the way, and often a chance to see the main draw players practicing. :)
