Yeah, just found out Sromova lost!!! Jelena should get through to the MD now for sure - unless something surprising happens - but hopefully not!!!
Possible qualifier openings are:
Qualifier vs Zvonareva
Qualifier vs qualifier
Qualifier vs. WC Pliskova
Qualifier vs. Pironkova
So about a 60% chance of getting a decent shot at the 2nd round!!! Hopefully Jelena doesn't end up with the Zvonareva spot!
This is so exciting for Jelena. What a great opportunity here! Even if she gets Vera, it will be a great learning opportunity for her. This could be effectively be where Jelena starts her transition from ITF to WTA events!!!
I'm already assuming she's going to win easily against Schaefer, which is probably not something I should just count on, but Jelena really should be able to win that match.
