It used be 56, but now that Mallorca has been added as a new tournament the same week, it is down to 32.

Re: Birmingham MD List

hoping Gasparyan will play, draw is a little disappointing to be honest, thank god Halep is there, i'm quite lucky she plays here being my local tournament.

Happy about Bencic and Peng but the draw was much better last year. I thought with the reduction of the draw more top players would play.

Only two of my faves playing

Kvitova - Simona - Sevastova - Andreescu

There's Mallorca in the same week, which has 5 x Top 30 players (or 7 x Top 40) . Last year there was no WTA tournament in the same week.

Re: Birmingham MD List

Not the most inspiring draw TBH, but I'll still probably go.

Would love to see Halep, Kerber and Safarova live

Venus
Kvitova

Re: Birmingham MD List

Is Erakovic in here or Mallorca @Nightcrawl3r ? I suspect she'd be a Q ALT here knowing her, but hoping she makes the trek to Mallorca from s'Hertogenbosch, could easily qualify and do some serious damage in that MD I reckon.

Marina + Angie + Lizette + Dasha + Jade + JJ
