Capra and McHale for sure are playing, I've read it from a couple sources. I'm not sure who else.

Re: USTA French Open WC Playoff

I assume Boserup,Hampton,Stephens and Vandeweghe and Vickery will also play.

Highly unlikely but you never know: McPhillips,Davis,Bolender

I hope not Bolender. That would be a waste.

McPhillips, Van Nguyen, and Min are all training for junior Fed Cup which is next weekend I believe.

Davis will probably be invited. She's awful on clay and very green when it comes to pro experience, but she's our second ranked junior (no. 17) and just had a great run at the Easter Bowl.

Goldfeld could get asked as well?

I've also seen sources mentioning these two.

I would say these 6 probably were invited. The only exception might be Jamie... I would be very surprised if Brooke and Kyle were invited.

Junior Fed Cup is played in Boca April 30-May 2. Depending on the WC dates (we don't know these for sure yet do we?) it is very possible some of the Jr. Fed Cup players could participate in both?

Good call, perhaps Goldfeld as well.

Re: USTA French Open WC Playoff

Well, Gibbs played both last year and reached the final. She couldnt make one of the Fed Cup matches and they had to forfeit as Lauren Herring had to have some blood tests drawn and was deemed unplayable. That is the main reason why they didn't make finals or let alone won last year.

Side note: Is Lauren Herring related to Stanford recruit Amelia Herring??

Re: USTA French Open WC Playoff

Re: USTA French Open WC Playoff

Just for fun, 11 girls played in the 2009 playoff:

(1) Kristie Ahn vs BYE
Stacy Tan vs Beatrice Capra
(4) Coco Vandeweghe vs BYE
Madison Keys vs Lauren Embree

Sloane Stephens vs BYE
(3) Gail Brodsky vs BYE
Nicole Gibbs vs Asia Muhammad
(2) Christina McHale vs BYE

Winner: Embree

So I think the following are pretty likely:
Capra
McHale
Vandeweghe
Stephens
Boserup

(I think it would be unfair to not invite Hampton considering her recent success and the fact that Christina is ranked 130 spots higher. Also, perhaps this event is why she pulled out of Charlottesville?)

Other possibilities (some already mentioned):
Vickery
Keys
Goldfeld
Tsay

Jr. Fed Cupper's: Min, Van Ngyuen
Turewicz
Hardebeck
Davis

(Last year 5/8 Easter Bowl QF's and were invited: Embree, McHale, Ahn, Gibbs, and Capra. The three in italics made the Semi's this year.)
Anderson (SF Easterbowl)
Asia? Gail?

Did I miss anyone?

Re: USTA French Open WC Playoff

Hardebeck should really be invited considering she's in such good form and one the 18s Clay Court Championships this year. Why not give her a shot?

Gail Brodsky should definitely NOT be invited. This girl has done absolutely nothing since turning pro.

If they choose 11 like last year, I say McHale, Capra, Vandeweghe, Boserup, Stephens, Davis, Goldfeld, Keys, Riske, Hampton, and Hardebeck should be invited.

Vickery, Tsay, and Asia could all be good possibilities as well.

I hope someone random wins again like Embree last year

It's not that. I think this WC opportunity deserves its own thread considering it is a playoff and competition is involved. Your thread is wildly useful and fun for US tournaments like Indian Wells, Miami, and the entire US hard court season!
