Re: Grand Slam debutantes

I checked the qualifying round matches and it seems there's only 4 possible debutantes:

Ksenia Pervak
Xinyun Han
Anna Floris
Bojana Jovanovski

Have I missed any? The elder Kucova already played a Slam MD in 2004 (!).

Jovanovski should pull through, Han might, Pervak not as much, Floris is highly unlikely to do so.

That the quality of the Slam debutantes was decreasing we already knew (compare the debutantes at RG 2007, then 2008, and then 2009, and despair); but now it appears that their quantity is decreasing as well.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

It seems everyone missed the amaze Masa Zec Peskiric's GS debut at Wimbledon last year.

Maybe because she had direct entry into the MD while I was following qualies. Or maybe because her lone claim to fame is being double bagelled by countrywoman Srebotnik at Chokoroz 1R one year.

Name please. I'm too lazy to look it up.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

And so it seems that the lone debutante for this year's AO is Han. And it seems nobody cares - and with good reason.

The sources of new players seem to be simply drying up. This is steadily going from merely "disheartening" to "grim". I don't think I'll bother to update this thread any longer, and if I was in the place of those posters who keep "young hopeful watch" threads at GM, I'd shut them down.

Why do you think I haven't updated my thread since late last year?

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Don't lose hope till Roland-Garros. From what I've read of this thread, it is at this Grand Slam that there are the most of them.
Maybe there will be more 1993 girls in the Q draw at that time. Tomljanovic is coming quite close to top 200 for example.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

The Mother of All Battles, RG Qualies, will begin tomorrow.

We already have one guaranteed debutante with direct access to the MD, Sweden's Johanna Larsson.

No idea. I'm only tracking data since the 2005 USO.
