It's especially weird when they had two tournaments within driving distance last week, both with full draws and pretty full qualifying draws. I wonder if players assumed that they wouldn't get in with the new system and didn't show up? Still very strange.

Taylor has been to the 3rd round of Roland Garros, it's not fair to say she doesn't deserve to win a clay challenger. I don't see any South American players with better clay credentials lurking on the ITF tour.

No. She was made de facto 9th seed and moved to Vickery's spot.

Davis vs Osuigwe in the second round could have big implications for the FO WC, with just one week remaining after this, but look out for Pera over in Prague too, as she could easily win a couple more matches there and take the overall lead (granted she is only 2 out from the MD and will likely get in directly anyways).

2 easy rounds for Kaja. She made a right choice to travel to US. It would be much tougher in the QF where she could face Gibbs who is in good form lately.

Well, Brengle got KO'd in the first round, and as for the South American players you clamored for...

...Cepede Royg of PAR was beaten in R2 by a 15-year old.

Great win for Cori Gauff, by the way. Great defense, hustle, variety, drop shots, and consistency. Crazy that a young teenager was the far more solid and well-rounded player out there.

Exactly!! Cori has beaten two Top 160 players in the first two rounds rather easily. She has looked far steadier, and really has an interesting game. Its not overpowering, therefore she doesn't make a ton of errors, but she has power. She mixes things up a lot, and HUSTLES for every ball with Venus like speed. This is nice to see for a girl that just turned 15.

It'd be nice to have some actual big South American ITF events. No wonder women's tennis seems to be dying there.

Kvitova. Osaka. Cepede Royg. Puig.
Safarova. Cibulkova. Konta. Bacsinszky.
