Re: Andreea Mitu

@Rads101 :Yes and yes. WTA changed it to a draw amongst best 2 seeds if a place becomes free before qualifiers are placed. If it becomes after, best losing seed gets in...There are things called WTA Rulebook and Grand Slam Rulebook which are public and you can find them easily .


WTA 125k Bol Singles MD

(4)Hibino v (Q)Partaud
(Q)Shinikova v Jorovic
Voegele v Mitu
Brady v (8 )Tig

Thanks. Is that the rule for slams for quite a while?

And btw, rather off-topic, if you know: did the WTA LL change this year in the end? I remember last year there was the proposal to introduce a similar random selection (out of best 2 or 3?), but I don't recall if it became effective.

Still some chances (depending where she's placed at among the remaining 3 on the list) , but slim.


If not, next is Bol WTA $125k in the 2nd week of RG.

Based on the way both of them played so far this year, I wouldn't have expected Andreea to win . Am pleasantly surprised she's won her first two qualifying matches in pretty straight forward fashion. At least it wasn't an epic 3-set win in R2 that went to 15-13 or whatever she used to do .
Am sure defending points is important, but right now I'm more concerned with Andreea finding some form and winning matches. She can always improve her ranking once that happens.

Yup. Expected .

P.s : Wozniacki withdrew so Andreea has 25% chances (at least) to get in today. Order of the 4 highest ranked losers from today will be randomly drawn. We'll find out shortly after the Q matches end.

Fingers crossed . Not all lost even if she doesn't get in today, as she could, if other WDs occur until every player plays her MD first match.

Re: Andreea Mitu

A bit tougher than I expected, but she made it through

The pressure will really be on Viktorija next round. She's trying to make the MD of the French Open for the first time, and Andreea is 1-0 in an easy victory against her.

Gluck to Andreea!

Re: Andreea Mitu

2 wins under pressure back to back . Very nice development no matter what happens against Golubic. Hoping she at least plays well.

Re: Andreea Mitu

I said from the beginning that Golubic could be the end of the road but maybe she'll surprise me / us .

I'll take the LL spot though , even with a defeat . Or spots, given the uncertainty of Jovanovski, Barthel or Crawford.

Re: Andreea Mitu

RG QR2 Mitu d. Jiajing 7-5 6-3

A decent rezult, but she was a break down a couple of times and blew some 40-0 leads, against a pretty average player, which suggests she's far from consistent and her best form. But maybe someone who saw the match can tell a better story.

Next is Golubic who has been cruising past slightly better opponents so far, so definitely a tough one.
