as if there are any young american hopes...
assuming this story is true, the tournament would obviously offer sesil a wc not out of the goodness of their hearts, but because they believe she will attract attention, fans and ultimately money. the usta should understand this and allow the tournament officials to do what they believe is in the best interest of the tournament.

They give last season Canas WC to play two big tournaments of "masters series" (Miami and IW), but dont give even qually WC to litle Sesil at stupid chalanger :fiery:.

I suppose if I weren't so damn lazy I'd fire off an e-mail what with being a card-carrying USTA member and all, but it wouldn't do any good.

I suspect, in all honesty, that they would have done the same thing if it had been Lucic, or Dokic or any other non-American player trying to get back on the tour, although I think tournaments should be allowed to grant wc's to whomever they choose, providing they are in good standing with the WTA, ATP and ITF. Which, as of Jan 1., Sesil is.

She is on the entry list for all 10k tournaments for the next 4 weeks, but the closest she is #44 alternate for qualifying... I assume, however, that 90% of those alternates do not actually show up. Otherwise no one would ever be able to start playing without a ranking...

I think Sesil has been quite classy with her return. She could have gone to the media and made a big deal about her comeback, begging to play in WTA events and Australian Open. Asking for 25k qualy wildcards is really not selfish I think, and she wouldn't even get ranking points unless she wins all her matches. For an unranked player not having access to wildcards the only chance she could play any tournament would be on very busy weeks or by going to out-of-the way places. She would have to wait some time to play maybe. She seems to be taking her comeback seriously, has trained hard and is going about it the right way. I think this deserves her a second chance. Hopefully later this year she'll have earned her way to top 100 and maybe she can play some grand slams. Good luck to her! :bounce:

polishprodigy
Jan 4th, 2008, 12:43 AM
I thought there was news that she would get a WC due to a withdrawal by someone who was supposed to get one (a young American).

Obviously the USTA did not feel comfortable giving her a WC because of her drug history. Too bad.

where did you find this out??This my post is sarcasm. I want to demonstrate how is pathetic this USTA deccission against Sesil.

- Brie is young
- Brie is American
- Brie is ranked like some usual 25K qually WC.

B/c Brie is only WTAworlds well-known player with profile like this i use her name to present how looks player profile which have advantage ahead of one of youngest TOP40 player ever. What is point if i present real name of real young american hope(less) player which will play qual. instead Sesil if nobody hear about her in this forum?

I'm also big enemy of dop cheaters, but her case is exception for me b/c she have ONLY 15 when doped (it's not own deccission of 15 y.o. girl - no way) and such talent deserve 2nd chance. After RG2005 she is banned 2 years and real professional cheater Mariano Puerta banned 8 years from ATP. But Mariano already played (since june of 2007) and Sesil must paused full punish (2 years) - but that is not enough for USTA and they give Sesil another two weeks extra :p.

I feel for her and her fans, if the story is true. But as you guys said when she's awarded the wildcard, a QWC to a 25k isn't a big deal, so then being denied one isn't a whole lot more serious. If she's that good, nothing can stop her return to the top. And it seems she can play in another wildcard challenge in US, so two weeks isn't that important in the grand scheme of things, I guess.

Experimentee
Jan 4th, 2008, 09:04 AM
WCs arent a right, they are a privilege. Since shes a drug cheat she shouldnt really be expecting anything in the first place. There are 10K qualy events she could enter without a ranking, and work her way up like everyone else does.

Why is it unfair that a liar and drug cheat doesn't get a wild card?! Hingis new when to quit. The ghastly Sesil should should just go away and leave tennis alone. I don't see how she can ever reconcile the fact that she lied so blatantly.

It would be a terrible blight on the game if she ever won a tournament on the tour. And it would be unfair on the other, non-doping, players.

Define "break" - if it means allowing her back on tour again, yes. Once her suspension ends she should be allowed to compete like anyone else.

If it means giving her special favors, or free passes into tournments or qualies - hell no, "they" don't need to give her anything.

juki
Jan 4th, 2008, 03:21 PM
Had she been out for two years with an injury and not a drug suspension any 25k would beg to have a former top 20 play at their tournament, and she would be getting WCs offers probably from every tournament. Even the USTA wouldn't deny a former top 20 to give the spot to a promising junior. (I know she would have a SR in this scenario and wouldn't need to play 25ks).

So if Sesil should be treated equally like the other players, with the suspension redeeming her doping offense and having it considered a non-issue, she would be given WCs because of her past achievements and obvious talent. I would be surprised to find out if any of the top 200 didn't get their start from wild cards into ITFs. Very few (if any) of the current top players were forced to play in 10k qualys in S. America or Asia.

Sesil will never again be treated the same as other non-doping players. The suspension was a punishment not a redemption (would you let a convicted child-molester babysit your children just because they had 'redeemed' themselves by serving out a punishment?). Even if she goes on to be the most accomplished player of all time in terms of results and titles, she will have a cloud over her and be treated differently forever.

I agree with other posters that it would be much fairer if the coaches/trainers who did this to her could be punished but they can't - and if she is still surrounded by the same people (does anyone know?) then she can't expect much sympathy.

I would be surprised to find out if any of the top 200 didn't get their start from wild cards into ITFs. Very few (if any) of the current top players were forced to play in 10k qualys in S. America or Asia.
Yes, they generally get wildcards from their own tennis federations - Sesil could wait for a Bulgarian event and request a wildcard there.

Of course she should not be hindered from entering tournaments, but neither should she get any favours i.e. start in 10k qualies. I'm sorry but if you've cheated then your previous achievements are erased, and you have to prove yourself again.

But she's proven already that she can compete with the best.

You can't just discriminate against her because of her suspension, that's in the past now and I think it's obvious that she has enough potential to deserve some wildcards into smaller events like Tampa.

R U sure that's the reason? There aren't any young American hopes.
Uh that is not true. If the season ending junior events proved anything it's that American tennis is actually on the rise.
But that's not the point. Don't say Sesil is not a upcoming American player but give to someone from the Netherlands. The USTA definitely screwed this one up.

1) I haven't read anything about Sesil herself complaining about her not being treated well(not publicaly at least)

2) Tournament of course didn't have to give her a WC, but as I understand it they wanted to and USTA didn't allow it. Or is that not correct?

3) Nothing tragic has happened - if she is still capable of playing at high level she will get back anyway. Few weeks this way or that way at her age will make no difference. Let's see first if she can outplay those girls in WC play-off without losing more than few games a match...

So much bickering and venom. it's unnecessary. This was a 15 year old girl, she couldn't have bought those drugs herself,so someone clearly supplied them to her, either knowingly or not. Having seen the grotesque entourage she took with her to Wimbledon, I felt sad for her. Just a load of greedy, aggressive men clearly in the sport for what they could get out of her. She's served her ban and deserves a chance to play again. I hope she doesn't fail another drugs test but history does has a habit of repeating itself with drug offenders.

Does she have any time frame for herself? By that I mean does she hope to compete in the French Open or Wimbledon?
