OK, but why not just win and get the guaranteed spot? Don't think someone would "tank" if she could win; what am I missing?

She would preserve a ton of energy, that is for sure.

talk of kuznetsova maybe withdrawing but not confirmed yet
and i dont think peng would kill her the way she did, its definitely a possibility

*Stephens*Hampton*Riske*Dulgheru*

*Anyone playing Wickmayer*

no, she's just nowhere near the caliber of Peng. It's that simple.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

rest and in the case of a seed like kuznetkova withdrawing, would the LL get a match vs not a seed, or are they thrown in at random with the quallie winners?

I'm just saying she would have to KNOW FOR SURE that there would be a withdrawal, othewise the idea is .

And even if so, I really doubt most players would tank, on priniciple.
