*clears throat* Thanks to my knowledgeable buddy MH0861, I have been appropriately enlightened on the new LL procedure at slams: it's drawn out of the four highest-ranked losers, to make it more lucky, I guess. :) So Ro Ro has to take pot*cough*belly*cough* luck.

actually i am wrong, there will be a drawing of the top 4 LLs for Pierce's spot. New rule.

Julia ;) :D :)

Romina doesnt have a LL place

its a DRAW of the 4 highest ranked LL and one of them gets it.

I hate it when non-fans make threads and bully around the actual fans of the player, ruining their lives by creating 0 replies in the thread the fan creates themself FOR their favorite player.

:sad:

Go Julia!! You've been amazing since you're depression :bounce:

Wrong again Vogus. You obviously are not up on the latest qualifying rules. The 4 highest ranked 3rd round losers go into a pool the decide the order in which the lucky loser places get dished out. I'd say Oprandi still has a good chance of getting a LL place but it is no a forgone conclusion and you'd would be wrong to assume the Oprandi tanked for that reason. Infact under the new system Julia would have been just as likely to get a LL spot herself as she would have been one of the 4 highest ranked 3rd round losers had she lost.

Vogus is going to have to eat so much humble pie when Julia reaches the top 50 in the next few months. :)

Pierce hasn't been included in the draw, I think. So no LL until s.b. else withdraws..

No, but clearly they expected her to show up, since she was originally on the seeded list... hence after she pulled out, there would be one less main draw entry.

I know, right? I mean, you could have donated some of that 10 grand you have to me, and it would have gone to a much worthier cause. ;)

I think she is taking pierces place as there is 13 qualifer spots in the draw isnt there only supposed to be 12, as well Tatiana Golovin and Maria Sharapova arent that confirmed starters

This really pleases me. Vakulenko has a nice game, and I'm glad she's back in the thick of things.

We won't know til the final qualfiying matches are done and her name is put in a draw to be picked.

It's a shame she was the top seed and doesn't have automatic entry into the main draw.
