Hopefully, Mi-Ra and So-Jung get in qualification. Typically, the final cut-off had been much lower than the commitment list,.. so..

Go, Mi-Ra!

Does Sharapova know what her ranking is? She's entering tournaments like she is ranked in the thirties and fourties and not the top ten.

WTA rules make her play in this tournament coz she was a first time winner last year

That rule is total bullshit.

2004 - Shaughnessy played Sydney, instead of Canberra.

2003 - Kuznetsova played LA instead of Helsinki last year, and didn't seem forced to play Bali. Bovina entered Philly during Quebec week.

c. First Time Champions
First Time Champions are required to make best efforts to defend their titles at Tournaments won the year prior (subject to the Play Down Rule). This provision applies to all players, not only Gold Exempt players. If a player is a
First Time Champion at more than one event, she is required to make best efforts to defend a maximum of two titles. Gold Exempt players are not required to make best efforts to defend their Tier IV or V titles or Tier III titles that are not part of their minimum commitment requirement to
the Tour. If a Tournament changes its location or week from the year prior, a player is not obligated to make best efforts to defend her first time title.

Not really as BS as one thinks. They do have to defend, Kim follows the rules quite well as she always has been:). But Maria didnt have to play here since she could play high tiers, she probably just wants to come back and make an appearance;).

I know the rule is there...

But like I said, in the few occasions that a player has raised high enough the next year, where they directly qualified for the higher ranked tournament... they've mostly ignored the rule, since 2001.

The point is that if Maria said, "I want to play Filderstadt." She'd be playing Filderstadt.
