Gasparri ITA (NR#86)
Zavarise ITA (NR#108)
Chiesa ITA (NR#116)
Lavoretti ITA (NR#120)
Newborn USA (NR#227)
Hinkle USA (NR#406)

ITF will make a draw to determine their positions.

Each country represented will be allocated the same number of draw chips as the number of players from that country. So Italy 4 chips, Estonia and USA 2 chips, Austria and Sweden 1 chip. Then computer will start drawing the chips in random order.

Let`s pretend that the chips will come out in the following order:

EST
USA
ITA
ITA
AUT
EST
SWE
ITA
USA
ITA

Which would mean that the positions in the entry list would look like this:

1. Vorobjova (Estonian with the best national rank here)
2. Newborn (American with the best national rank here)
3. Gasparri (Italian with the best national rank here)
4. Zavarise (Italian with the second best national rank here)
5. Kandler (Austrian with the best national rank here)
6. Hendsel (Estonian with the second best national rank here)

etc.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I understand. So it's completely based on luck
Anyway, Eva won 6-2 6-2
Finally she wins a tournament
She will go up to number 4 now
And it does help if she enters a tournament with other Estonians, which she will probably do as the only pro tournaments she is likely to play are the ones that are local, which all the other Estonian girls will play
