Marina could wait a bit longer, she is still a junior. I guess Eden will play qualifying, since she was lower ranked compared to Shelly and Marina got a WC.
Marina had some huge results in Fed Cup this year. She beat Wynne Prakusya (ranked in top 200 at the time) and lost 9-7 in the third set to Suchanan Vitrapesert (who was ranked just inside or outside of the top 200 at the time). Those are great results for any 15 year old, and clearly New Zealand tennis officials are shitting themselves as they don't have anyone else with the slightest possibility of top 250 singles potential.
