Only 4 certain aussies confirmed here
Pratt in the main draw
and Evie and Cindy in the qualifying!!!
and Amanda Grahame in the next in list
Ozfan44 you cant say for sure that Stosur, McQuillan, Musgrave and McShea are playing here.
For starters McQuillan played Auckland last year with Trudi Musgrave. Think that was partly under protest for not getting a wildcard into Gold Coast draw!
Also Stosur has an opportunity for direct entry into Auckland Qualifying due to her runner-up finish at Rockhampton as Evie will surely reject the offer of the play-in spot.
And last but not list McShea has been injured for 5 weeks! She's had a few nagging injuries the last few years, hope she will be right to play here but never assume hehe.
Other players though likely to be here are Tiffany Welford, Christina Wheeler, Bryanne Stewart (she's too lazy to go to Auckland!) and maybe Mireille Dittmann

ozfan44, there are rumours now that Rachel McQuillan may be getting a wildcard into Auckland main draw!!
Since their arent any NZ girls in the top 300 Tennis NZ is looking into the possibility of granting an aussie a wildcard. It would be in their best interest to try and suck up to Tennis Australia, you never know, they might get an Aust Open NZ Qualifying wildcard out of it!

well Sam Stosur will prbly get a wc into the main draw of this becuase she lives on the Gold Coast
And shouldn't Adriana Szili get a wild card into Auckland or Qualifying beacuse she won the 10k wellington challenger olny dropping 10 games
