Re: Wimbledon entry list

We all know that this is the Main Draw entry list, for qualifications there will another totally independent list in couple of weeks.

We also know that the first 200 in the ranking are automatically entered by WTA.

But my question is: what's the reason to enter into this MD list for players outside the 200 place?

If they are here, they have voluntarily entered: do they hope that there will be more than 100 withdrawals, or what?

What sense makes for someone so low, as Errani and Zarazúa for example, to enter this list?

Just to remind people they are alive?

An assumption : May be you need to enter if you ask for a wild-Card ?

Frankly I have not considered the option that Buyukakcay, Yingying Duan or Parrizas Diaz may ask for a WC in the Main Draw..

Probably just for "fun". It's just couple of clicks to enter.

There are plenty of players who enter tournaments without any intention to actually play.

Re: Wimbledon entry list

I can’t believe Friedsam’s SR is still in effect. She’s really milked the hell out of it.

Re: Wimbledon entry list

Vandeweghe’s PR is way too low. It should be 54 as that was her ranking after the last tournament she played. The only reason I can think of is that she didn’t submit her injury application until her ranking had fallen to 100, which would have been a huge error on her part.

Now Rosalyn can say that she was on a grand slam entry list! Hey, it looks good on a resume when your applying for a job as a teaching pro at some posh racket club! 😋

Now that I think about it, wasn’t she ranked around #100 after her Elite Trophy final pts came off ? That was around the same time she played at the end of year doubles championships with Barty, right ? So maybe the late season doubles tournament counts as last tournament played, even though she hadn’t been active in singles for awhile 🤔

Re: Wimbledon entry list

WTA might consider the Dec 31 2018 ranking with which Vandeweghe entered and be accepted in the 125K Newport Beach her Special Ranking. She withdrew subsequently before the draw.

If so, the Out-of-Competition Period is just fit for the July 1st commencing Wimbledon.

Re: Wimbledon entry list

Grand Slams accept only players with rankings 500 or better. The FO entry list (no longer available) comprising players outside 500 must not be official despite a final list.



The present Wimbledon singles list does not contain any players below 500.

The Roland Garros Player Page lists only singles rankings 500 or better even though those who play only doubles.

Players with rankings below 500 do not have their rankings shown, e.g. Yang with singles ranking 577.

Then this means she probably won’t be able to play any warm up events after being out for so long.

Thanks for the info

Good catch. Yeah it doesn't seem fair to me that someone could receive a protected ranking if they're still playing doubles.

Re: Wimbledon entry list

The deadline for entering 2019 Wimbledon qualifying is June 3.

The May 27 rankings will be used since there will be no rankings update in the midst of FO.

This year 2019 the number of players in qualifying are to be increased to 128 then the initial average cutoff ranking 201 ± 2 in the past years shall not be applicable.

We would rather start from this year's main draw cutoff (101), add the number of the qualifying direct acceptances (119) and get the ranking 220.

We could assume the number of players using SRs will be more than those eligible but not entering. Let the *difference be +2.

Then we might expect the initial 2019 Wimbledon Qualifying cutoff ranking be 220-2=218.

Assign an uncertainty 2 we have 218 ± 2 as the initial cutoff.


In FO19 there were 3 QD eligible players received MD WCs and 9 Q-alternates moved into QD.

Likely these numbers will be more in Wim19 (more MD WCs, more players etc.), we expect three more Q-alternates would move into QD, equivalent to ranking 230.

Therefore we expect players with rankings 230 or better will eventually move into the QD after all the withdrawals and MD WCs.


* the difference might be conservative, if the difference is -2 the initial-cutoff could be 222 and end-cutoff could be 234.



Note: players in table below might not have entered the 2019 Wimbledon Qualifying.
