she is 97 on next in list at the moment

however sydney is her 3rd preference to play so unless she gets a wildcard she wont play here!

Dec 5th, 2005, 02:34 PM
I guess the Chinese girls are taking a different approach in 2005 and trying to play at the higher tier tournaments instead of in Tier IV all the time :D I applaued the CTA :clap2:


Mary :sad: Why are you planning to go into Australian Open with no warm-up AGAIN?

I don't object to their playing higher tier events in 2006, but Sydney usually has one of the higher cutoffs on the WTA calendar.

Bad decision IMO considering that they would make the maindraws of Canberra and Hobart. :(

True they could have been in Main Draws at the other 2 tourneys but hopefully they will learn something from playing against the higher ranked girls in Sydney. Shuai may sneak into MD if there are withdrawals and plus we will see the debut of Shuai / Na in doubles here

I think it is a good decision, because the Chinese girls should play higher tiers more often. All of them have a good chance of qualifying, and they could win a MD match or 2 :D

Dec 6th, 2005, 06:47 AM
Nice list - thx for posting it. Sydney is right up there among my fave tier II events.

With Kuzzie making her début, that means that Sharapova is the only grand slam champ since 1962 not to have played the Sydney tournament at some point.

Yes she can still get a md wildcard for sydney!

2 weeks (i think) before the event u have to notify the wta which event u want to play and then they automatically withdraw u from the other 2

so basically they give u until 2 weeks before to see where u think u r most likely to get in or get better matches or whatever the players is looking for then u have to decide

Jie is a dumbass im sorry i like her but she is!

she originally entered only sydney and was like 5th on qualies list but then decided she would ask for hobart wildcard and changed her preference from sydney to hobart so she was changed to mdo for sydney then she either changed her mind again and didnt want the wildcard or didnt get it so now she will end up just playing dubls here silly girl!

Which was mother related .Not turning up this year has more to do with her saying last year that she intended to take a longer break - she wisely dumped Hopman and couldn't care-less Safin and it seems she has dropped Sydney too. its obviously something she is firm about as she could have picked up quite a few points playing Sydney and another warm up.
