But that's only a 25K!!

Its not the point she won a 25k that is exciting, but that Sesil has shown enough to prove that she is ready to compete at the tour level already. This was a strong 25k and Kloesel is in great form, making R2 of AO as a qualifier.

No, Tampa (where she got robbed of her qualy WC so the tournament owner could give it to his client Stephanie Herz) is the one with a feed-up into Memphis.

coool
Feb 3rd, 2008, 08:06 PM
and now that is impressive, Sesil.
For those who say it's only 25k..think about the hundreds of players who play there for years just to reach 2-3 round...

Feb 3rd, 2008, 08:06 PM
Well next week we will see.
If she wins 75K we can all say out loud Sesil is back.

Congrats anyway!!!

In the "always use condoms" interview Sesil said the reason for the no QWC, was because the tournament was scrapped for cash and needed to accept any WC offers

She will probably run out of steam next week. Too many matches already played in the last two weeks. Future looks bright, though.

I will be surprised if she is not back in top 100 by the end of the year.

WOW!! Well done to her!

Great tournament for Sandra as well and she's had a fantastic start to 2008...coming through qualifying and winning a round at the AO, reaching the finals of the Hawaii 50K and now this.

It'll be interesting to see how Sesil does in Midland next week. 16 matches in three weeks (not counting pre-qualy wins in Surprise) and then playing eight straight days here...she's got to be fucking exhausted. Just making it to the weekend stages there would be an accomplishment for her.

Agree with every word of that. I would be surprised if Sesil won next week. If she does it really would be remarkable. At some point all these matches she is playing has to catch up with her. But she is playing so well that even if she loses at some point next week she is still looking better that 50/50 now to make it to the RG qualies. And top 100, even top 50 looks very realistic for the end of the year.

I'm happy to see Sesil doing so well in her comeback. If she wins Midland, she should emerge around #253 or so in the rankings. A final would give her around $285 and a semis would give her about #311. A decent run at Memphis and Sesil could be breaking into the Top 200 very soon!

I don't think Sesil, her father, or her agent necessarily know the business side of this game. (She said in an interview around then that the TD said the USTA barred WC's in its Challenger events going to non-Americans. But Herz is Dutch, though a Saddlebrook resident... and a client of GL Sports Entertainment, which owns the event). Or maybe the agent does know what happened, but doesn't want the family to.

Sesil will not be playing Memphis, as neither Surprise nor La Quinta gives a feedup as of now. :(

You get a Maindraw Feedup for winning an 100k, 75k or 50k event - you get a Quali Feedup for winning a 25k event :)

Usually you don't hear about people taking advantage of their Quali Feedup, however some do and Sesil could if she wanted too

Not every 25K offers a qualifying feed up though. Only some do.
