Ksenia Pervak (#110) still nowhere to be seen Ying Ying Duan is in Main Draw having never beaten anybody in Europe (lost all her ITF matches played in Europe, never played WTA here)
Giant-Duan's in Wimbledon MD.

But Duan has never entered Wimbledon or Roland Garros qualies, and has never played in Europe since her dismal ITF sequence in 2007. You cannot argue that she deserves her place in Wimbledon more than someone like Petra Martic, for instance.
Whybourn is no great shakes but she is no worse than many MD wild card level players from Australia for instance.
