And then Katie Volynets (WTA 412) gets a MDWC.

Re: Early Entries

Concerning Eléonora Molinaro, the tournament director said that Eléonora had initially not wanted to play in Lux, so that in the end when she finally was interested in playing she could only get a quali WC

This looks a bit confusing ...

Re: Early Entries

Sharapova's participation is now in doubt, after withdrawing from Linz due to her chronic shoulder injury

Could that be a chance for Eléonora Molinaro to get Maria's MDWC?

A Top 20 WC?

No way! The only two free WC have already gone to Minella and Volynets

Re: Early Entries

Why did Maria get a Top 20 WC?

As expected.
What is Kerber's excuse?

But if there's no Top 20 WC being taken up, then shouldn't there be 3 normal MDWCs? That's what usually happens, but not sure if it's been affected by a Top 20 one being requested in the first place.

Re: Early Entries

Volynets is the most random-ass WTA WC of the year. Like... yes, she's an OK junior, but... why, Luxembourg?

Molinaro not wanting to play initially isn't very plausible either. And she's made much greater progress than Volynets this year. Hopefully she gets Sharapova's WC now it isn't being used (and also positive that Luxembourg is being kept clean).
