I think since Matevzic withdrew, if I am not mistaken, Rossanna Neffa-De Los Rios will get a Main Draw spot.

OMG ALLISON BRADSHAW IS RANKED 406?! :eek: She better hope she draws Robyn Baker or the other WC's except Cory Ann. She deserves a good result. If she can qualify, I'll consider her to be back

Good luck to Avants as well! I expect her to come through qualifying

If I am not mistaken, every unseeded player, which Bradshaw will be, must face a seed in the first round no matter what. There are like 30 seeds in qualifying alone, and only two rounds.

Allison will be lucky to win her first match, but I'll be rooting for her.:)

best of luck to:

Cory Ann Avants
Allison Bradshaw
Jamea Jackson

hopefully avants and bradshaw can get through qualifying. they both have the talnet to do so but neither played well last year. cory ann has strated to pick things up so i hope allison can do the same starting with this tournament.

i also heard that douchevina was getting a wild card and she didn't get a qualies one so maybe she got a main draw wildy.

i hope both sharapova and lucic get MD wildy's they are both great talents.
