I don't think so. A lot will depend on how the MDWCs go. If Swiatek needs a MDWC (I can't see 4 withdrawals), then that will lower the chances of an overseas youngster getting a QWC IMO. Plus, if the 3 ITFs are won by those needing a WC, and subsequently pushing the likes of Bains, Dunne and Burrage into the QWC bracket rather than MDWC, then there will be less QWCs to go around when you consider the likes of Raducanu, Lumsden and G Taylor will get one, in addition to the annual 2 GB playoff winners. There'll likely be another GB junior getting one as well, possibly Allen or a 14 year old who has just broken into the (junior) top 100.

She has a lot more chance than the aforementioned Duan mind.

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Burrage and Dunne should both get priority over Bains regardless of their respective rankings and results in the next few weeks in order to avoid another Izzy Wallace situation.

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Dunne is playing well in Surbiton so that could put her further into contention

McNally & Wickmayer may be in the WC conversation too should they win a couple more matches

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

If there is one WC left over for one of Bains / Burrage / Dunne / Lumsden, maybe they could organiase a MDWC play-off alongside the QWC play-off.

Problem with that is they would have to not take WC's to other events in order to play a play-off. So it could end up being a hindrance to the winner as they mis out on playing potential MD calibre players.

A four-player draw would be two rounds, could be played in one day, and timed provisionally for the end of Brum / Ilkley week, in the event that none of the players have made a cast iron case for themselves up until then.

If any of the players in question get a deep enough run that week (or this), they have probably played themselves into a MDWC position without the need for a play-off.

I think you'd only use a play-off to separate several players of very similar overall merit, in the event that there are fewer wildcards than plausible candidates.

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Bains has a stellar draw in Nottingham to get that MDWC in Wimbledon. An upset over top seed Garcia (or even a good showing) will seal it. Tough task but she has been practicing on grass for almost a month.

Also Bolsova looks definitely out of contention for a MDWC since she couldn't even get a MDWC for Mallorca

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Bains lost in straight sets to #149 Greet Minnen in R1 Surbiton. A win over Garcia would certainly be a very notable result.

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

If someone could enlighten me regarding the cutoff date for Wimbledon main draw acceptances. No one mentions American Taylor Townsend, her ranking dropped after she lost points from last year's French Open. Anyone know what her chances are? Appreciate any info member may have - thanks!

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Tara Moore, has just beaten two top 200 players in one day to qualify for WTA Nottingham. If she draws Lumsden in R1 and wins (and I would probably back Tara) then that will add a new complication.

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

1. I am pretty sure Moore would be considered for a QWC rather than an MDWC unless she gets a really stellar result over the next two weeks - like a qf in Nottingham or something.

2. Both Surbiton finalists are already in the main draw, so no WC relating to that competition. Manchester and Ilkley to follow.

3. I am still convinced that there is a chance that Watson and/or Swiatek could get into the main draw as they are 3 and 4 on the alternates. Giorgi withdrew again, no sign of Coco V who surely must play a grass event before Wimbledon, and rain = slippy grass and the chance for more injuries and withdrawals before Wimbledon. If they do not get early wild cards but Watson is still given an MDWC for Eastbourne, then that means they are keeping one for her in case she does not get main draw through withdrawals.

4. Boulter pulled out of Nottingham so if she is not ready for Wimbledon, that is likely to mean another Brit girl moving up to replace her. Katy Dunne has been playing best so far on grass of the girls outside the top 200, ie the ones whose MDWC is still up in the air.

Agreed - I think play offs are a waste of time. The way to judge whether a player is worthy of a WC or a QWC is to see how they perform against top 100 and top 200 players in the run up to that GS on the same surface. Last year's QWC play off produced Holly Fischer - whatever happened to her, or did the drubbing she receive put her off?
