I stopped trying understating her a long time ago.

My understanding of this is she got tired of the long road to entering the rankings through 10ks and is now trying her luck at an easier path. Maybe she's staying in Moscow with friends, hoping at the last minute a ready and available alternate is needed...?
This is a pretty bad sign, that she doesn't have the strength/persistence/ability to go the distance in 10ks to quickly enter the rankings in a "clean" way
Being 40th on an Alternate List seems to be a pointless exercise.

^
The same day of the qualies sign-in in Bol she played in the QFs in Hvar. Maybe she thought she might not make it and didn't want to pressure herself that way (she would have to lose on purpose to get to the Bol qualies in the last minute).
I think the fact she had to play 6-7 matches to get 4 points is pretty crazy (5 matches just to get 1 point).
It would be better for her to look for some less demanding qualies while she's rankless.

So far she doesn't seem to be on any acceptance list till the end of April.
We'll see if she pops up again in May (lists not available yet)

A very late withdrawal - last out of 262 players - from a 10K in Bol (also Croatia; there was a WTA tourney there in the past).
Who knows why, and when and where she'll pop up again...

Re: The Evgenia Linetskaya Thread

She had a ranking in '07. I don't think a re-entry would be much of a milestone.
Playing 10-15 tournaments till the end of the year would be, otherwise it's not a real comeback, it's a pastime.
She's only 25. At the very least, she should give Julia a run for her money as the Israeli No.2.

All that assuming everything is okay with her and she can concentrate on playing tennis.

Well she has 4 points from this tourney. She either needs to reach the semifinals in one tourney , or reach at least the second round in 2 tourneys.

Let's hope so for her sake, and for the Israeli tennis future.
Her potential is very high.

If she wins the tournament (still a long way to go, I know) she could enter the ranking list next week already.
The rule says a player needs points from 3 tournaments, or 10 points or more. a 10k tournament win is worth 12 points.
And than?

Will she change her character and be able to commit?
