I am under the impression that players must sit at least on # 375 spot at the entry deadline to be eligible to enter a premier event. Raquel Kops-Jones (USA) & Natalie Grandin (RSA) didn’t meet these criteria. But as there are four QD-WCs (and additional ones for more open spots than on-site Alternates) am I spot on that both players accepted a QD-WC?
I really wonder how on earth Rodionova will be able to play her match against Grandin....
Rodionova got a 3:30pm start tomorrow. She'll have to travel tommorrow very early in the morning and go straight from the airport to the courts. And you have to consider that there is still 2 hours drive from Pattaya to Bangkok airport and be at least 1 hour before the plane takes off. It is night already in Thailand and has just started her match there, I wonder if it's worthy all that rushing to play a qualy match in the worst conditions...
But I know I have a fickle heart
and a bitterness
and a wandering eye
and a heaviness in my head
