I'm surprising that Szavay need to play Qualifying round,
she is ranked 28th this week

So I have this problem, who is the highest ranked player to play Qualifying round?

Yeah but she was 19 because of her SF in Doha the week before;)

Filderstadt draw used to be the strongest of the year
I think players ranked around 22-24 had to play quallies some years ago

its not surprising its called entering very late and you have to qualify. She doesn't need to qualify if she entered the tournament in time

not exactly true i think. she advanced from 20 to 19 because of Doha and Kirilenko (26) was last direct entry. So it must have been late entry too :bounce:

Serena Williams has done it before! Unfortunately She entered one tournament very late and she didn't qualify for MD :(

No she hasnt done it. The last qualifying round she played was back in 1998 in Sydney when she was ranked 96 in the world (it was her first time in top 100)

ps:- In that tournament as a qualifier she went in to the MD without dropping a set and then caused havoc in the the MD beating 7th seed Testud and 2nd seed Lindsay Davenport before losing to ASV in the sfs

Different rules started this yr
quali list is 3 weeks after

so players who didnt enter before for MD list can enter but have to play qualies.

you could say they looking for cheap pts and some match wins
obviously it didnt do Agnes much good :help:

Venus played qualifying in Zurich, even after making the US Open final in 1997.

If a player is in the top 10, isn't she supposed to be in the Gold-excempt (sp?) list?

Paola Suarez played Filderstadt quali as #17 in 2003 or 2004.
