How is a girl ranked in the Top 200s making the third round of a Slam and beating one of the fastest rising players on tour who weeks before was in career best form is not "stepping up" The same girl also beat a Top 10 player two weeks before in a three hour match.

Li Na, Estonian Mynx Nettu-GOAT Kontaveit, Aljona Ostapenko and The Barty Party

Kanepi Bertens Kostyuk Rybakina Empress Hagatha

Wow, I am deeply impressed. The standards of excellence expected from an Oz player to be worthy of Rod Laver spot in prime time AO have become very clear now.

She was only on RLA when playing Kerber or is Kerber not worthy?

Why would they give her a WC while she's busy plummeting down the rankings? 70 places just last week and 200 so far this year? She's obviously not ready for the big stage yet.

Everything perfectly fine, there's a reason for the existence of wild cards and them being... wild cards.

This.

Not hate, just there’s no justification at all for this WC anymore. It’s not 2018. I wish she gets some form back though.

Re: The Annual Horrible French Roland Garros WCs Thread!

Wtf, she's 16 and her ranking plummeted because she's been out for three months due to injury.

Nice little win today in her first WTA event back after those posts.

Re: The Annual Horrible French Roland Garros WCs Thread!

It was disgusting how they snubbed Genie of a wildcard last year and forced her to play qualifying, when she's not only a former semifinalist, but also a native French speaker.
