The fact that there's no seeded player in Fernandez' section and that there's no player seeded 7 in the MD also suggests that a player withdrew and gave place to a lucky loser. I'm aware that the info about the seeds is often wrong or incomplete but in this case I consider it pretty reliable as it's confirmed by several sources and is in order with the actual rankings.

The seeds and their rankings (rankings of 23 January according to my latest findings - not yet updated in my thread). Here are also the highest ranked not seeded players:
(1) Yvonne Vermaak, 41
(2) Marcella Mesker, 50
(3) Ginny Purdy, 53
(4) Joanne Russell-Longdon, 55
(5) Leigh Thompson, [57, 59 or 60]
(6) Patricia Hy-Boulais, 61
(7) ?, [62-66]
(8) Catrin Jexell, [64-67]
Elizabeth Sayers, 68
Heather Ludloff, 71
Catherine Suire, 73
Etsuko Inoue, 76
(Mould, Harrington, Vanier, Mundel are possibly ranked in that region too, ie. high 60's to high 70's).

Surely there must have been someone ranked 62-66ish in the draw at some point. It could not have been AM Fernandez as she was ranked outside of top 100 both on the 9th of January and on the 6th of February (#102).

The two Q-draws are the same apart from order, a missing seed info at Mahwah (Jexell [2]), the Sakaguchi/Okagawa issue that Peter2003 has menitoned before and some minor stuff.

The draw is the Aug 13-19 United Jersey, Mahwah draw. I don't know if anyone has the correct Indianapolis Q-draw somewhere. Otherwise I will rebuild as much as I can based on WTA.com's results. This also means that most of the info about qualifiers and lucky losers in the Indianapolis main draw is wrong (I guess this answers one of Peter2003's questions in post #67). Notice that ITF has the same errors about qualifiers in their Indianapolis draw!

The Indianapolis qualifiers were in fact: Debbie Spence of Cerritos, Calif.; Donna Rubin of Rye, N.Y.; Beverly Bowes of Lubbock, Texas; Kris Kinney of New Canaan, Conn.; Ronnie Reis of . Miami; Anna Ivan of Palo Alto, Calif.; Karen Stampfli of Switzerland and Karen Smith of Australia (source).

Thanks - I discovered it by chance and nothing else as I was trying to link rankings to results. Impressive work by you too. And I'm beginning to understand the amount work needed to maintain and update these threads (not to speak of the massive work put into it by the original creators!).

All results and seeds according to wta.com. I've kept the current WTA names to make it easier if anyone wants to verify or double-check the results. But the names can be changed back to whatever is consistent with this 1984 thread.

QR2 and QR3 are complete while we miss three results in the first round. I've assumed that all seeds had byes in the first round, which is a pretty safe assumtion, but it's not confirmed in all cases. Penny Mager [12], Kate Brasher [11], and Kumiko Okamoto [9], for instance, are confirmed byes while Debbie Spence [1] is not. I've only written byes for unseeded players when it's confirmed - hence the three missing results in QR1.

Besides the 8 qualifiers, Pam Whytcross got into MD as a lucky loser.

Main draw needs some work too as all qualifiers and four lucky losers are wrong!

It's the same player playing in Brighton and Sydney according to WTA. Maybe it's possible in theory (losing in qualies and going to main draw in another tournament the same week). But hardly possible when we consider time difference and travel time. I suspect it's Karolina Karlsson playing the 10K in Sydney. She played another 10K in Australia that October. Besides, Carina Karlsson was ranked #71 in the world at the time. All the seeded players in Sydney were ranked near top 200 at best. Lastly, Carina Karlsson also played in Zürich the week after Brighton.

I think you're right with Karolina.
Carina played definitely Filderstadt > Brighton > Zürich, it's not logical to fly to Australia and back to Europe in-between, she wasn't even seeded at the 10K (Annika was).

I will change my database to that.
