I think Watson is out:sad:

She have glandular fever....

"I had to do some blood tests after Miami and the results have shown that I have traces of Glandular Fever (mono) in my system..."

"I hope to recover as soon as possible by resting my body and getting lots of sleep. I already feel better from being at home for a week, and am looking forward to getting back on Tour soon!"

So, if WC's are confirmed for Petkovic and Robson, Garcia and Rezai could only get Q WC (4) or doubles WC (2) if needed. I know it's tough, but that's the rule.

Apparently Petkovic asked for a French Open main draw WC. So if she doesn't get it maybe she won't play Strassbourg.

If Petkovic must play RG qualies, Garcia will probably get one of the two.

Strasbourg got into Kimiko's schedule.... maybe she's talking about doubles since no name in the entry list.

She was supposed to play 100k at CEZ but WD due to back injury so I guess she needs cray warm up for FO. playing doubles is better than nothing and low risk for getting injured right before GS. ;)

Thank you VERY much for the info.
I'm assuming "S" means the girl is not a member.

Also: I think reading the "Rules" gives an interesting view on the tour.
I'm familiar with the huge PDF, but I've never read the appendixes before... it worths the time.

Please, no. As much as I like Marta, you can't really say she lost this match 'because she tanked it'. When she played it, she was in a total slump and hadn't won a single match in over 3 months. Plus the scoreline wouldn't have been that tight if it was a tank (Piter won 7-6 4-6 7-5), Marta even won the second set.
What's the interest of accepting a Wild Card just to do all you can to lose directly in the first round, in front of your own crowd? She could have declined the invitation if she wanted so much to play RG qualies instead.
