6. Sophie Ferguson (Confirmed as one of the discretionary wildcard).
7. Kai-Chen Chang (Confirmed as the Asian wildcard since original choice of Doi got in directly).
8. Sally Peers (Confirmed as the final discretionary wildcard).

So the only ones left are the discretionary ones. Alternate is Dellacqua. Also, if Molik were to get direct entry and/or Dokic wins the play-off their likely I would predict their replacements to be Jessica Moore and then maybe Isabella Holland? Wejnert? Jade Hopper? No idea about this one .
OK. All are announced. I guessed pretty well .

8. Sally Peers (Has some good results and was a cute story at the Open, plus one a round there).

5. Wejnert
6. Rajicic
7. Barty
8. Robson or a young international player (if not Bai)

I would say Bai probably deserves one over Barty and Rajicic as she played well in the WC playoff but I too believe she will be overlooked.
robson has a shot of direct entry. Last year cutoff was 219, she is 217 now

Re: Aussie Wildcard Play-Off. Dec 14-19.

I think Bai definitely deserves it! But I think they will give at least one to a foreigner like Karolina Pliskova or Robson. Probably Mirkovic's.

Re: Aussie Wildcard Play-Off. Dec 14-19.

^ Despite playing well in the play offs and finishing top 400 for the first time, Bai will most likely be overlooked for a younger player such as Sumner or even Barty. The rest of your 7 picks are all safe bets for a qualifying WC though.

Holland is definitely in because she won the 18s tournament (winner gets a qualifying WC).

Re: Aussie Wildcard Play-Off. Dec 14-19.

Molik, Ferguson, Dokic, and Peers seem like very obvious locks for main draw WC's, unless someone else pulls off some big surprises during the first or second week of the Aussie circuit.

Qualifying, I'd probably go with:

1. Jessica Moore
2. Tammi Patterson
3. Sophie Letcher
4. Viktorija Rajicic
5. Monika Wejnert
6. Marija Mirkovic
7. Alison Bai
8. Isabella Holland


Hopper had a pretty dismal result at the WC playoff, and truthfully her only decent win this year came over Jessica Moore. Other than that, she hasn't shown the kind of results that suggest she's ready to take on top 200 players.

Sumner seems to have Wejnert's number, but other than that she hasn't done much either.

Mirkovic, Holland, and Bai are all girls who seem to have been around forever even though they're all still pretty young. Might be the last chance for all 3 of them, unless they show signs that they are going to progress as they've all stalled a bit.

Dokic still a WC chance for Open

Jelena is handing this match to Olivia on a silver platter.
