They should really give WCs to someone who at least won a tournament this year... even if it's not International. Else why call it Tournament of champions? More like tournament of wild points.
Obviously had either won a tournament they probably wouldn't need a wild card.

Re: Kirilenko gets the 2nd WC for Sofia MM YEC

I never liked this tournament very much. It is basically a chance for 8 players ranked roughly between 11 and 30 for some cheap points who are all more or less randomly selected. I don't see why a player ranked for instance 20 deserves this chance more than a player ranked for instance 17 just because the former won luckily an international while the latter did not. The numbers are just arbitrary here, no particular players in mind .

Still, only the 2 finalists get a really high amount of points, but they don't have to beat top 10 payers, so it is in a way the easiest opportunity all year. For Kirilenko, this is the 4th tournament, she never participated although she was always top 30, so I think she totally deserves her wild card.

The WC idea from the start is horrible. In any case, Cibulkova rings a bell?

Choosing Cibulkova over her at least would merit the title "Tournament of Champions".

This tournament would be far more interesting if it was for the top 20 players who didn't make it to Istanbul.

It would have been nice to give Vinci a WC. Just saying.

What? She's going to qualify directly, probably.
