This tournament, being mandatory, receives the benefit of five wildcards, to be given to any players. Last year all five went to Spaniards, and unless some comeback player (maybe Molik?) gets one, then I imagine all five will be Spanish again.

1. Ana Ivanovic (The Fistpump is confirmed).
2. Shuai Peng (Through a poll).
3. Arantxa Parra Santonja (Confirmed now).
4. Virginia Ruano Pascual (Final singles tournament for her).
5. Sybille Bammer (WTF?!).

Ana Ivanovic has her own house in Spain (villa in Majorca)... so she have chance to reach this WC even by iSzávay criteria :bounce:

Halep will get one for MD or Q because the tournament director, Ion Tiriac is a former player and he is Romanian and he gave one of the Bogdans a QWC last year and Halep said in a recent interview that her next tournaments are Marbella, Barcelona, and Madrid ;)

I hope Ana decides to play quali :o That could give her some match practice and improve her perfomance in the MD a bit - in case she qualifies :)

It could, but I prefer not take the risk ! She is a former n°1 and a Gran Slam winner, I don't want her to play quali !

Shocking news - thanks to scandalous protection of Event President, Director and even mayor of Madrid, first WC not goes to Arantxa Parra Santonja or Nuria Llagostera Vives, but to:

Tennis / Madrid
Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open will be "better than last year" and will focus on new technologies
Ana Ivanovic made the 2010 edition with Tiriac, Santana and Ruiz-Gallardon

MADRID, 12 Abr. (EUROPA PRESS) -

...

In addition, Serbian Ana Ivanovic, who did a show with Manolo Santana, displayed his usual friendliness and greeted in Spanish, apologizing for having to give the rest of his speech in English.
"I am delighted to be back in Madrid. I'm sure it will be a great tournament with great innovation. Two years ago I saw and loved the facilities, last year I could not play, and I'm looking to jump to the track" said the first player to receive a wild card of the organization.

She's not Spanish, already got wildcards into three major tournaments, and since Indian Wells has not played well.

Plus, she had her chance in Marbella and Barcelona and definitely did not make good use of it. Very unlikely.

Yeah she is. But that's not a reason why she should get directly into MD with her ranking, while other girls have to play quali. She can play quali like all others girls. :shrug:
