Excting!

Can somebody explain to me what level this tournament is this year, and what that means for players?

Do they have to play there if they are not injured, or what is the way that works? I haven't understood those new rules.

For ex, can Serena withdraw if she wants to? If she doesn't want to play, does she have to come up with an injury? Would there be any reason to give her an appearance fee, if she has to play there anyway?

Cincy Tournament has been Upgraded to 2.000K one of a few P 5 Tournamnets.

It means TOP 10 players shall play some P5 tournamnets (I dunno how many) but it said in other thread that if a TOP 10 player don't play in Dubai or Rome they need to commit to Cincy and/or Toronto ithink both.

But still ithink Serena or other can withdraw in time if they want to injured or not, with a late withdrawl they likely will get fined. Its not mandatory to play here.

Premier 5 tourneys:

Dubai, Rome, Tokyo, Toronto, Cincinnati

The WTA is obliged to provide 7 of the top 10 players to each of these tourneys (or pay the tourney a fine, eg. $100,000 if they provide only 6 of the top 10).

The top 10 players (as listed prior to last year's WTA Championships) must all commit to playing at 4 of these 5 tourneys.

If the players do not meet the commitment due to injury or whatever, they must make a PR appearance (ACES) for the tourney, and if they fail to do so are subject to penalties too detailed to describe here.

Thanks guys, that is helpful!!! :kiss:

Do you think that means the tournaments can save their $$ in appearance fees? For ex, Cincinnati always paid Serena a big appearance fee, to get her to come and say how much she loves it there. Would there be any need to pay??

Interesting question: as the Top 10 change throughout the season, how does this rule apply? Would it apply to those who are in the Top 10 at the start of the season? I mean, eveybody has to plan her season and cannot make adjustments to suit a rule which only starts to apply to her on short notice, for example if she is Number 12 but jumps to 10 after three of those required ones are done. :confused:

It would also be interesting to list which of the Top 10 have played/missed which of those 5 Premier tournaments. Maybe I will do that if I get time.

The WTA pays the high-ranked players bonus money at the end of the year if they fulfill their obligations throughout the season. This is in the rules, and is intended to compensate for the loss of appearance money at mandatory tourneys, but the players don't seem to like the loss of choosing their tourneys and negotiating appearance money.

The top 10 list for mandatory entry purposes stays the same all year, it is the top 10 rankings just prior to last year's WTA Championships.

OH, I love that!! It systematizes the appearance fees, for the mandatory tournaments, instead of allowing it to be subject to negotiations. That is a rule change I wholeheartedly agree with.

Top 10 list just prior to the WTA Championships - makes sense that it is a static list.

Hopefully the WCs will be announced soon :bounce:



I wrote the tournament about WCs. Here is the response.



"We will be announcing the Qualifying draw either later on today or tomorrow. The Wild Card players will not be announced until late this week, most likely Friday.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. "

Thanks for the update. I guess we already know 2 of the MD WCs...Kim and Lilia :bounce:. I wonder how many are given out...3 or 4 ?? =)

Actually I did not know about Lilia. They love her there for some reason. :unsure: How did you find that one out????

Here is the way the MD is comprised as best as I can figure out.

1-45 - Direct Acceptance (45)
46-48 - Wild Card (3)
49-56 - Qualifiers (8)
57-64 - Byes (8)

As for the other WC: the highest ranked player from US not making it into MD is Bethanie. Followed by Jill. They might also consider Makiri, as she was a semifinalist last year and this tournament does like their marketing (as they all do). I think they are also eyeing Oudin, but prolly for a Qualy WC.

Any other ideas?

I think Oudin is out of MDWCs so yeah, probs a QWC for her.

I would guess the wildcards are Clijsters (confirmed), Osterloh (made quarterfinals last year), and Glatch (has gotten wildcards their in the past and is obviously talented). I would say Oudin is probably the next most likely.

Osterloh? Its the "geographic angle", she's from the suburbs of state capital Columbus, @ most 100 miles from Cincy. (Plus she looks hot) ;)

The tourney director promised her an MD WC for aslong as the tourney is around or for aslong as she is around on tour :lol:. Why you may ask...:confused: Because she's from Ohio and the homecrowd always enjoys seeing her play . She almost always plays her best in Cinci having a MP against Patty a couple years back, taking Lindsay Davenport to 3 tough sets and making the QTRs the past couple years :bounce:.

If any are indeed in somewhere somehow, let us know.

Kirilenko, Niculescu, Paszek, Barrois
Olaru, Parmentier, Kutuzova, Mayr
Yakimova, Johansson, Koryttseva, Voskoboeva

With today's rankings, actually the highest ranked player, in qualification ,from USA is Oudin!
Followed by Jill then Bethanie.

If they give it to one of those, I think Jill deserves it more than Melanie. But the tournament may go for the wow factor.

Makiri is not showing up in the qualifying list... why is that? :confused:

According to Sania's official website her next tournament would be Cincinnati.
I just can't understand how she could play here :confused:

drake3781
Aug 8th, 2009, 12:58 AM
No MDWC for Bethanie, Jill, or Alexa Glatch. So who are they going to? Could be Makiri and Sania? I am confused and frustrated that this info is not available. Anybody know anything?
