Breaking: Rising Star SAISAI Zheng (CH #36) Earns WC For 2019 Zhuhai SET 700!

Re: Who Deserves The Wild Card For 2019 Zhuhai SET 750 ???

Good thread, Goat! I was thinking of doing similar, but was going to wait until after the Wuhan/Beijing double in case anyone had a Qiang like run and qualified directly. It'll definitely be a home player I'd have thought, and it will likely depend on the next fortnight and who does best, but I'd still be inclined to give it to Qiang at this stage as she has the 360 final points to defend from last year.

No reason to pick now, but if none do well before the choice is made, probably Qiang because she almost won it last year

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Venus and she'd be an idiot not to take it. Get her ranking up for the Olympics. If she wants the WC, she'll get it.

Hopefully, they just give the 12th player direct entry and don't give out the WC.

that has NEVER happened in the history of 4 years @ Zhuhai and previously 3 years at Sofia, so obviously won't be the case this year

Sharapova would draw the biggest crowd out of this bunch. It would be in the tournament’s best interest to give it to her

Iím still shocked this tournament/concept has lasted for so long, when initially it was basically just a license that cities could buy to host a glorified tennis exhibition for their star player.

Venus or Sharapova donít deserve a WC at all here considering the years they have had - unless one of them somehow wins Beijing - since this event technically should be all about rewarding a solid top 20 level year, but you never know with this farce.
