Bondarenko is likely out, she got nominated for Fed Cup against Canada, played in Canada. That would be brutal change of timezones.

They are playing in the east coast, in Montreal. Turkish Airlines has a direct flight Montreal - Istanbul of less of 10 hours. No big drama, I remember 38 year old Navratilova playing both singles and doubles in 1994 WTAs Tokyo, Chicago and Paris in back-to-back weeks with multiple timezones playing 20 matches in 3 weeks :worship:

How is Pera in qualifying of both Stuttgart and Istanbul? Is there a priority for either?
She is playing Stuttgart.

Main Draw WC for Cagla Buyukakcay, Ayla Aksu and Ipek Oz
Here: TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Cup ? Official Website
What a disgrace Turkish #1 Eraydin is not getting a MDWC even if last year won 5 matches here to reach the quarterfinals from Q :eek:

Schiavone will play here?
She is in MD

It would seem that WCs are given to Koza Wos' young players. I still didn't understand why MDWC isn't given to Eraydın, it was a surprise :|

Wow @ no WC for Eraydin. The disrespect.

Soylu has had tons of WTA WCs, in Turkey and elsewhere, and is still flopping so probably a good idea to leave her in Qs - but Oz is just a very strange choice. Not even Cengiz?

Is there any tennis federation that can actually be trusted to hand out WCs on merit rather than favouritism?
