I wouldn't put the whole blame on Tasmania though. I think the WTA supervisor there is responsible for the draws to reach the WTA as soon as possible, so considering there is internet connection in Tasmania, I see no problem of the draw reaching the WTA. :rolleyes:

There is one way.. Do we have any list of players supposed to be in qualies? Checking their websites is a good way to find R1 matches at least, and since it's like 3-4 AM in Australia, no hope on getting the draw from them till play starts.
