Re: WTA 125 Carlsbad (USA) 2015 | Nov 23 (Entry List)

Posters on GM have pointed out that Hampton has to use her SR now, otherwise she'll lose it altogether, since she's been out 2 years. If true, that explains that. Voilà: https://www.tennisforum.com/12-general-messages/1008098-jamie-hampton-comeback-next-week-wta125-carlsbad.html

As for the WC choices, the juniors and AS are all horrible picks in my view. But I imagine that, in Alex's case, some TD's would rather hand her a blatantly undeserved WC than have to face non-stop haranguing by her mother for months on end. To be honest I'm surprised Alex doesn't receive more WCs than she does, the way her mother is known to carry on behind the scenes (though admittedly my source for this info dates back 15 years or so ).

Yes, at least that was my thought on the matter. It makes sense since the dates pretty much line up to the 2 year mark

That at least makes sense. But only for Hampton. TBH, being first out she'll probably get in anyway. But that wasn't really my point. The WC choices are absolute trash for an event that used to be a WTA event. You'd think that they'd have a shred of sense. I mean, Scandalis went to USC, and with the number of times Stanford has given WCs to their own players, that's totally fine. but the other two girls? No disrespect meant, but there are 30 or 40 so other Americans that could or should have gotten those WCs. Lao plays qualifying while a high school sophomore who's never played a junior tournament is in the MD?

I know you were talking about Hampton specifically, but I just wanted to illustrate my point. If anyone at all would be better served playing qualifying, it's two 15 year olds.

I dont get why they gave out there WCS so early. For example Chirico is like two wins away from MD of Aussie Open maybe they couldve got her to play. Or girls close to making qualifying for aussies.

As it stands, she's 109, which would get her in, thanks to her Limoges performance. France to Cali, though, is like a nine or ten hour time difference. Not really worth it for one event.

But, no, I would not go out of my way to see "Sexy Lexy" play. I managed to see her once "in action" in Stanford, five years ago, I think, and --interestingly enough-- she was playing Jamie Hampton, if I recall correctly, in the qual rounds. She didn't win, but finished the match. I remember it more because of her Mother, practically limping across the stadium court at every opportunity (for example, when Alexandra needed coaching-calls or a banana) and she limped so that EVERYONE could see her. So that EVERYONE could see SAMANTHA STEVENSON. It was gloriously pathetic.

And, of course, I stand by my point about the lame WC decisions at this event, regardless of Alexandra's participation. As all of us have remarked ... it's the end of the year, it's really not that "big of a deal" but I'll bet it's a big deal for a HELL of a lot of players in qualifying, including Jamie -- who deserves FAR more help than Stevenson on any day of the week.
You enjoy my contributions? I'm not sure which would be more shocking, reading that or if Alex won an ITF event at any level.

It is to guarantee AO MD.

Right now 109 is not directly in. And she could find herself even more out if some players who are eligible for PRs use them.

I don't understand some of these girls' logic. And also Asia Muhammad. She ended her season in Australia. She's at a career high of 232 and playing great tennis. She is so close to being on the verge of playing QD of AO Qualies and MD in doubles at the AO. Surely she will be back in Australia for the leadup tournaments at least for doubles. Why not enter a 125K tournament in your home state to end the season?

Very very disappointing.

Chirico for sure should be here. Def flying back to the states. Someone mentioned Asia was staying in Australia to play league tennis. As much as Asia's scheduling has frustrated me over the years that last trip to Australia was finally the right move for her! Hopefully she is smart and get herself into top 200 for french and Wimby

Hasn't seemed to have been a priority for her, honestly. Chirico, I mean. And actually with there being 108 players in the main draw, and Pennetta retiring, and I understand your point about SRs, but by the same token players could also be injured, so not to be nitpicky but yeah she is in, like I said for the moment.

The qualifying draw in Australia is always weaker than the other slams and Muhammad, considering the fact that she'll be there for doubles, is likely to get into the qualifying draw. Less players still make the trip, because it isn't worth losing 1r in qualies for most of them.

Well, to be technical, no she is not in. Sure, she has a good chance to get in. But she is currently OUT. Allertova was 1st out last year at #110. So again, it's not guaranteed Chirico will get in at #109.

Also, you are probably thinking about the qualifying draw cutoff being lower historically in previous years, however, that seems to be a thing of the past where a player in the 220+ range gets into the AO. With the increase of prize money for slam qualies, a lot of players are making the trip now. Last year the cutoff was #214 - Barbieri.

Im pretty sure Duval, King, and possibly Hampton(fingers crossed its a real comeback) will be using SEs. Thats just the Americans i know of. The increase in prize money has def driven the cutoff for Aus Open qualifying up.
