:speakles: :yippee:

This tournament will not be the total pile of crap that everyone is exaggerating it to be. They gave a WC to a player that did win an International tournament, so it is a valid spot for Kimiko :)

the tournament needs a selling point so it's good decision. If Kimiko just wins a match it will make more headlines than anything else the tournament could offer.

Yup. This really is like a 2nd career for Kimiko. And her 2nd career has actually only been going 18 months, so while in tennis terms she is admittedly anything but young she is indeed definately still upcoming. She is still in the early stages of career two I would say. :)

Bali - with or without Kimiko - is far away from becoming a tournament for young and upcoming players...there are some in the draw, but Bartoli, Stosur, MG, Martinez Sanchez are not young and not really upcoming (ok Sam is)


so it's totally fine, if kimiko gets one...anyway the whole concept suck

if it was for the young stars...Just make the rule best 12 players under 20 or whatever...

I think you people are taking the WTA's desire to showcase up-and-coming young players too far. It is only one of several reasons to have this tournament - NOT the only reason. This is not a junior tournament - it needs to have quality players playing quality games. So what if they offered WCs to over-30s? I'm sure the youngsters don't mind a test from the old foxes.

Some of you think WTA tourneys should only WCs to young players? Isn't that ageism? :weirdo:

Nothing against Kimiko but she's no quality player... and Schnyder this year??

Kleybanova, Cibulkova, Lisicki, Wozniak, Pavlyuchenkova...

Daniela said that she had been offered a wild card. Patty is almost a sure bet to get one. I'm not sure about this.

There is at least more quality than giving tournament places to a bunch of teenagers who may not have proven their abilities (such as winning a tier 3 title). I was arguing against having only young upcoming stars in the tournament...
