I am assuming one will go to Mikaelian, and maybe the other to Bascinsky? Anyone else have ideas?

Bascinsky gets WC for qualifying

i think Bacsinsky, who is showing a lot of promise, should obviously get a maindraw WC ahead of Mikaelian... there isn't any WTA rule preventing a 15-year old from having a maindraw WC, is there?

Ooh, I hope Mikky gets one too :) Myri as well :D Also I hope they can play well in front of their home crowd.

Myriam Casanova will not play before spring 2005, so no wild-card for her!
Timea Bacsinszky has got only a wild-card for the Qalifying-Draw!
I think so, the wild-cards are for Emmanuelle Gagliardi et Marie-Gaiané Mikaelian!

Is Myri finally getting the surgery? :)

what surgery? no, she's just very unhappy about her physical condition right now, she's had problems with the shoulder and the back, plus there's still the weight issue. she wants to work on those things before coming back.

it'd be a bad idea to give timea a main draw WC, she'd be eaten alive.
i fear the same goes for marie-gaïané right now. maybe she should be playing qualifying as well - the main draw will be so strong. :shrug:

Yes, Bacszinsky is much more likely to be able to earn points in the qualie draw, it's a good decision. I see one going to Gagliardi and the other to a non-Swiss.

Are you gonna go, Beat? :)

Wasn't there some troubles with Gagliardi and Fed Cup? I would be surprised if she would get a WC...

When will we know about WCs? I can't beleive they wouldn't give one to Conchita! That would be a shocker....

she is gold exempt still which means she technically a top 20 player in terms of getting into draws

wtf. please explain besides for timea.

Raymond: she is basically the highest rank players that expressed interest for the tournament. Of course they would have prefered Capriati or Myskina or Dokic with her last year final but none wanted to come...

Douchevina: i guess no one really "interesting" was around. So they decided to go for the next future russian sensation... she won the orange bowl and Wimby Jr. in 2002 vs.... Sharapova :)

the Swiss have been friendly to the Russians in the past, i remember they gave a WC to Nadya when she was coming up in the ranks...

so Timea gets the lone Swiss WC...

Douchevina is better than Mikaelian, and is going to end up being better than Mikaelian was. So, I guess they are just going with the best person who asked for one?

oh please, it's not like there's dozens of wta tournaments in switzerland. it's really disappointing, and - like i said in the post above - shit idea to give timea one for the MD (though i hope she'll prove me wrong! :) )
