She's no longer the #1 on the next-in list for Wimbledon now
Gala Leon Garcia went past her in the ranks, so Karolina will need 2 withdrawals to get into Wimbledon now.

It might be better for Karolina to be the #1 or #2 seed in qualies rather than go directly into the main draw. Since this will be her first GS, it is likely that she will be excited and a little nervous. Playing qualies will give her a chance to play a few matches and settle in before (hopefully) playing her first main draw match. By playing qualies, at least she will gain some points and experience on grass if she is unlucky enough to draw a top player in the first round.

She plays here on clay, Wimbledon on grass, then Palermo on clay again.

K-lina has a bad draw. She faces Kuti Kis first and then Jankovic in the third round (unless Abramovic pulls off an upset). Karo has lost to both of then this year.

Another good win for Karolina. Very impressive. Does anyone know if she will play any of the US hardcourt tournaments before US Open?
Jun 12th, 2003, 02:26 PM
She should have the ranking to get straight into the US Open by then,... So I would assume she will try to make maindraw or qualify at them. I'd expect her to enter a few warmups at least. But I don't know anything definitive yet.
Jun 12th, 2003, 02:56 PM
Well done Karolina! :D :)
I don't know because the cut-ffs might be too high for her. She might also play some of the clay court tournaments as opposed to the hard court tournaments.
Jun 12th, 2003, 02:58 PM
Her ranking is up to about 77 now,... so cut offs shouldn't be too bad. I'd think she'd make it.
