14 yr olds can play 1 event bigger than a $10K

She's doing well. Currently ranked #1 on the European Junior Tour 14&Us.

I meant they can only have 1 WC at age 14 at a WTA event.

below is the full ruling for a 14 yr old

b. (i) Between the date of a player’s fourteenth (14th)
birthday and the day before her fifteenth (15th) birthday a
player may participate in a maximum of seven (7) ITF
Women’s Circuit Tournaments, only four (4) of which may
be for prize money of greater than $10,000, plus regional
Fed Cup Qualifying, and one (1) exhibition/non-Tour
event. The number of ITF Women’s Circuit Tournaments
a player may participate in will be reduced if the player
receives a Wild Card into or accepts a Feed-Up position
into a WTA Tour Tier I-V Tournament as provided in
Sections 1(b)(ii) and 3.
(ii) These players are permitted to receive a maximum of
three (3) Wild Cards as follows: one (1) Wild Card into the
Main Draw or Qualifying Draw of any WTA Tour Tier I-V
or ITF Women’s Circuit Tournament, and two (2) Wild
Cards into the Main Draw or Qualifying Draw of any ITF
Women’s Circuit Tournaments.
(iii) These players may earn a WTA Tour ranking;
however, these players may not participate in WTA Tour
Tournaments, including the Championships, by direct
ranking acceptance. These players may not participate in
professional Grand Slam events.

She had a great start on the junior circuit but she is getting pegged back a bit now. by that i mean she isn't winning quite so much but she still is doing a pretty good job. she started the junior circuit by winning 3 tournaments straight so you can't really do anything but go down.

Michaela should be able to become junior #1 soon,
she skyrocketed her ranking to TOP 10 in a matter of
a few months, Slams wouldnt be too far from her...:)
still remember the person who won
a title at 14.....yes, Lucic,
hopefully she will break Lucic's record..

dont know why she can get a WC into MD though,
i would rather give her a WC to qualies....

the men´s tournament is held at the same time, and thats why they don´t have a qualifying
they need the courts for men´s qualifying

She (Silvana Bauer) quits from the sport :eek: Just read that on Dutch Teletext :eek: She said she didn't enjoy it anymore. Her coach said she couldn't handle the pressure....
