Is Myri Casanova going to get one? It seems likely because she's Swiss and has had very good results this year

it would be really strange if she didn't get one. but you never know with octagon. being swiss was never a guarantee to get a WC (see gagliardi and vavrinec).

Anna K is to get the Gold Exempt WC - but who knows about the other 2 - Mikaelian and Casanova should get them - but maybe Schett - she has gotten one here before...

I do hope Myriam gets one. Playing in qualies isn't all that bad too.

i'm sure she will get one!

I hope Myriam gets one as well, but in all fairness Patty Schnyder should get one before either Myriam or Marie Gaiane Mikaelian.
If Myriam plays qualies, hopefully she'll get a good draw. :)
I wonder if Daniela Casanova will get a qualifying WC, or maybe she is not ranked high enough for that even. Does anyone know if she is still playing tournaments? I haven't seen her name for a long time. :(

it would be wrong for patty not to get, although she make the main draw anyway. she is ranked high enough to get straight in. dates have killed patty this year - she would have been straight in fidle amd here and would have got a gold exempt if not for the timing of the decisions - really annoying. myriam and mikaelian have to get them too. although one has to be the gold exempt! anna might not play though

It would be silly not to let Patty in to the Main Draw. Patty is my ultimate favourite and I have her autograph unanimous times over. I think she will be a certinty. Marie and Emmanuelle should get wildcards, and maybe Miroslava if she is well again, she might use her injury protected ranking. Daniela Casanova is worth a shot, but might be hard and Romina Oprandi should also try to qualify, I don't mind if one or 2 swiss get in.
It's just with these Neutral Countries :fiery: they will pick who they choose instead of their countrys players :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

MGM has major points to defend here
she made QF last yr
so she's stuck in qualies :eek:

Does anyone know about qualifying wildcards? I hope some of the junior hopefuls Tina, Timea, Romina, or Serena gets them.

Eggy, didn't Dado said a wildcard has been given to Marie?
:) Glad Myriam got one
