Good Luck Caro in 2019!
Tammi P. wins 2. set...
There are plenty of Aussies in between.But how come Destanee at about #152 and 2nd seedet and 3rd seedet Tammi at about #345? They needs some more Aussie players in beetwin or they don't wanna play...
#118 TomljanovicSo just to update the situation we have seven confirmed WCs and only one left to hand out (as of now):
*Ahn is seven out of the MD; if she gets in, the WC passes to Danielle Collins
**definitely a question mark over whether Azarenka will end up being able to travel
I'm assuming the last WC will go to Lizette Cabrera or Ajla Tomljanovic. It'll be interesting to see what happens if Azarenka withdraws after qualies begin - as presumably all the players in line after her will be playing qualies...
Up until this year Australia didn't have enough players to have 8 strong WC options, in fact we still don't. It's better to have Ahn in MD than some 400th ranked Australian who will get trashed. The French should have given up their WC this year, it's a joke they would send anyone given the complete absence of talent they have. Having 8 WCs makes it too easy for Australian journeywomen, with the discretionaries and Asia-Pacific program it at least rewards talents but doesn't encourage complacency.#118 Tomljanovic
Just one WC for one of these 3 players while the French sending a $15K peasant :facepalm: Tennis Australia and their stupid WC swaps...who cares for a random WC at the USO or RG ffs, give the girls the opportunity to play at home with an awesome local support instead of the likes of Perez losing at the parking lot in NYC in front of 4 grannies. Meanwhile Aussie fans will have the likes of Ahn or Ponchet to cheer for :worship: At least the Chinese has some sense being the Asia Pacific Slam and being a young prospect...
I dare say the remaining wildcard is 'live' for whoever does better the week of Brisbane International. Whoever doesn't get the Wildcard will have to withdraw. Either that or Victoria has informed them that she won't in fact be able to come and both of these have a MDWC.Tomljanovic signed up for the qualification in Sydney and Cabrera in Hobart but unless they get WC's at the AO they won't be able to play those qualifications
