I am shocked at the live scoreboard at the moment for Oprandi after her best career form last week. I hope Oprandi can fight back and able to win this match!

Who is she playing?

It's not that big a suprise... before Rome she regularly lost to players outside the top300. :shrug:

She is playing against a player from Taipei

I think Oprandi is about to come back now! She took a break.

Chan Yung-Jan is a very promising teenagers actually... I am not shocked at all to see her leading.

Oprandi was a bit of a fluke in Rome in my opinion, she could be good in a year or two, but you can't go on expecting her to win regularly. :shrug:

Yes, she's the first seed of the qualies.

But it is said that the Lucky Loser rule has changed this year

Don't they choose lucky losers randomly now?

Remember they have that new LL thing where it's picked randomly from the 4 highest ranked losers . . . . so she would have a 1/4 chance if she lost in the final round of qualies and someone from MD withdrew

Yep, the top four highest-ranked losers of the last qualifying round get drawn out of a hat in random - that is the order they will take LL spots in main draw.

Lucky losers need even more luck

The rule regarding lucky losers in Grand Slam tournaments has changed this year. Previously, should a player in the tournament itself declare forfeit after the start of the qualifiers, the highest-ranked loser in the last qualifying round automatically got through. From now on, however, once the qualifiers have been completed, there will be a draw among the four highest-ranked losers of the final qualifying round to define the order in which lucky losers will replace those dropping out, should more than one player declare forfeit. If there are more than four forfeits, then the fifth-highest ranked player will go through, as was the case in the past.

Yung Jan is no pushover. She is a promising young teenager, and recently won a $50K challenger.
Tough draw in the first round, otherwise she could have won some matches :sad:

both players should be ranked inside the top 100 easily soon, but Romina isnt that good as her result in Rome was, nothing really special. I mean she uses her brain what is pretty positive and should beat some stupid power players. She uses much variety but her ground strokes are not that powerful

That's only in slams though, on the WTA tour it's like before, cause slams are under ITF right?

1) Oprandi is already on the top 100 (#95)

2) Oprandi is good by whichever standards you apply and even without improving her fitness will do some damage, particularly in clay, in the coming years. Consistent #50-60 in the near future.

3) Not entirely off the mark because you do state that Oprandi's main asset is her court savvy
