It appears that Birrell has withdrawn from Wimbledon qualifying to play Eastbourne qualifying....
Not surprising given the ranking points situation, Bouchard withdrew today as she's in the same situation as Birrell, Hives & McPhee. Wouldn't be shocked to see a bunch of last-minute withdrawals from people waiting and hoping there'll be a late change of mind regarding points...

Hon vs Grammatikopoulou
Hives vs (20) Lee
Sanders vs (WC) Brogan
(5) Inglis vs De Vroome
Mendez vs Stevanovic
Cabrera vs Jacquemot
(27) Gadecki vs (WC) Grey
(10) Sharma vs Zuger
McPhee vs Perrin
Perez vs (11) Anderson
Fourlis vs Herdzelas

Quite a few winnable matches in there. And if they keep the same streaming schedule as they had last night, Gadecki should be first up on the Youtube stream for qualifying

(WC) Grey def. (27) Gadecki 5-7 7-5 7-6(7) (from 7-5 5-3* up...)
Perrin def. McPhee 6-3 6-3
Stevanovic def. Mendez 6-1 7-5
(11) Anderson def. Perez 3-6 7-6(5) 6-2 (Ellen had a break in the second)

(5) Inglis def. De Vroome 7-6(8) 6-1 (saved 6 SPs in the first)
(10) Sharma def. Zuger 7-6(6) 6-4 (saved 2 SPs in the first)

Awful loss from Gadecki if we're being honest with ourselves but a great win from Hives, and everybody else who was expected to win did so, not a bad day at all!

7 through... that's gotta be a record.

Was very surprised Zoe did so well as hadn't looked too good in her comeback, that was a nice surprise.

Very clutch play from Pri, Maddy, Jaimee & Astra.

De Vroome was really thumping the ball and super fired up... Maddy really saved all those set points with some very clutch shots.

Now that Wimbledon has started, I am really gutted these girls won't receive points. I really thought the WTA would reach some agreement, shame. Hives is using a PR here, I don't believe that should count towards her total she can use. Seems very unfair when they are designed to get your ranking back up after injuries.

Good luck aussies

Another great effort all around! We're guaranteed at least 1 qualifier, and Inglis, Sharma & Fourlis are all in with solid chances in QR3
