Zvonareva withdrew. So unlucky for her that she broke the top hundred and then can't play for months. She still has a chance to pad her ranking before defending major points in Moscow (and then St. Petersburg), but will need to get healthy soon.
yes, it is only qualifying. She is a qualifying alternate and can not get a WC
She's still 20 out of the QD. Awful scheduling by her team, looks like they care more about her publicity than her matchplay.
She would have had a much greater chance of getting into San Jose - she'd only be a few spots out of qualifying now so likely to squeeze in. So now she has to go to Washington to do some dumb promo and not play any tennis.
