Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

That’s pretty unexpected. I thought they would be kind enough to give direct entry

Re: Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

But in terms of points perhaps it helps Bencic? She gets extra points if she gets through the qualifying draw?

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Re: Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

She should have just entered from the start in order to avoid this scenario All players in the 6-15 range usually enter Moscow, then withdraw after they either qualify or are mathematically out of it.

I think at first she wanted to play Luxembourg, she has some good memories there and reached the final last year. Then things got a bit complicated.

Anyway, she's dead right now, she probably won't make it to the MD.
It's ok, she had a very good year. She needs to rest.

Re: Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

I'm fairly shocked the WTA didn't strong-arm Moscow into giving her a wildcard. It's a bad look for them that the race to their championships (which they try so hard to make happen even though they're not really happening) is going to come down to this mess. But at the same time I suppose that's the WTA for you .

And who is getting the top twenty wildcards anyway? Or is BB not eligible since she wasn't last year?

Re: Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

Hope she takes some time off soon... I do not think this is going to go well, but I do understand where Belinda is coming from. Such a huge chance to qualify...

Re: Bencic gets WC in Moscow qualies

"oh, those Russians...."

if she qualifies and seedings are re-done and she's a top 4 seed in MD (happens sometimes in ITF If I'm correct...), will she have a bye?

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Astra Sharma - ...

Please. Entry deadlines were pushed back because of the whole Hong Kong mess. She gambled and lost.
