Re: WTA 125K Indian Wells (USA) | 2019 Feb 25 - Mar 3
WTA World No. 18 Wang Qiang, who owns two career WTA singles titles (2018 Nanchang; 2018 Guangzhou) was granted a wild card into the women’s main draw. Wang is coming off a career-best year in 2018 that saw her crack the Top 20 in the rankings for the first time. Lauren Davis was also awarded a main draw wild card into Indian Wells, where she will look to solidify her hold on one of the two BNP Paribas Open main draw wild cards up for grabs. Davis currently tops the Road to Indian Wells Leaderboard on the strength of a runner-up finish in Houston and a semifinal run in Newport Beach last month. Francesca Di Lorenzo, the 2018 Oracle US Tennis Award recipient, also received a main draw wild card, as did 14-year-old Coco Gauff, winner of the 2018 Junior French Open title. Catherine Mcnally, the reigning French Open and US Open Junior Doubles Champion, rounds out the women’s main draw.
Americans Kayla Day and Ena Shibahara – the doubles champion in Newport Beach – join the qualifying draw as wild cards.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
