In the past editions there was a MDWC awarded to a player representing one of the main tournament sponsors, or something like that (so Pliskova sisters in MD, Bouzkova in Q). Maybe this will change this time. If not, the organizers will be able to give MDWC's to two Poles at best, unless a top 20 asks for one (if so, there would be only one MDWC available for a Polish player and Frech has it already).

^^ Not one of the sponsors but owner of the license (Octagon).
It is just like that that license owners choose part of WCs (that way e.g. Badosa wouldn't have got WC to Miami).
Unfortunately Octagon hasn't signed any Polish players so we see the results of that in Katowice. :)

Strange how the organizers did not use one of the top 20 non used WC for Linette and let Mestach advance to MD :eek:h:
It seems like the last MDWC has been awarded to a player from Octagon, like every year. Maybe Kristyna Pliskova again...

Actually, Van Uytvanck replaced Parmentier who was another last minute withdrawal so either a Top 20 player got a WC or the organizers gave it to someone else.
