No wildcard for Bacsinszky
In addition, the organizers of the 25th Generali Ladies announced on Saturday that they. A request of Swiss Beijing finalist Timea Bacsinszky, who is the first time on Monday in the top ten, to had to turn down a wildcard Because that would mean that the Tournament Director Sandra Reichel takes place from the competition one of the Austrians again.

"Theoretically, we could until shortly before the draw (Sunday, 13.30 clock) to wait. But I would opt for Timea, I had an Austrian, Tamira Paszek or Barbara Haas, escape the wildcard. And I will not, "said Reichel.

You can't blame them after the all the critics the last time LinzGate happened.

Social media unfortunately rule now, so they don't want to get lynched after making the same mistake again

Sandra Reichel :yeah:

Timea could have entered Linz earlier. Her problem and mistake

Reichel promised Tamira Paszek and Babsi Haas their MD Wild Cards earlier

(BTW Babsi Haas is MUUUCH more talented than Moser and deserves this Wild Card)

Though outrage is expected because of whta happenend before in this tournament, it a a VERY late call for a WC from Timea. If they already had granted this 2 players a spot, then it should not be taken away. Plus if they gave her the WC and then Timea wins Beijing, she would most likely withdraw.

Thats just perfect. That also means, this Swiss girl cant definitely go before Petra in race, since those 3483 points (should she win tomorrow) are her maximum. Perfect. Hopefully, Timea will be missed in YEC. Vulturing Linz was refused by the organizers, perfect. She tried to be a Mega Vulture, but she failed. Even more perfect.

Just imagine. Timea (trying to vulture here as much as she can) wins tomorrows final and gets to 3483 points in race. Petra did 10 points in Beijing so she is 8 points ahead. If Timea ended the 8th before Flavia, I would already think, the WTA is going to apply that special rule. Since you know, Timea in YEC...

A very valuable opinion as always. Timeas plan to become a WTA mega vulture badly failed. Its just an AU tournament, so an Austrian should be there understandably instead.

Does Moscow still have a wildcard spot available?
Timea is entered for Luxembourg*, so Moscow is a non-starter.

*That which-does-not-count :eek:

Very fair decision.

Remember that 2013 Kerber scandal. When they stripped a WC from a lower ranked player and gave it to Kerber and fixed up the draw.

Timea should've thought of it earlier.

Timea cant just switch from Luxembourg where she is registered (and can get 0 points) to Moscow. Tell me the reason which would be accepted?
I guess there could be a complaint lodged about the WTA seeming to change the rules on Luxembourg counting for YEC. I'm not a particular fan of Timea, but that situation is crazy.

But Timi can Enter Qualies, should she lose tomorrow...
If she is allowed to do so. That would be even a much worse vulturing after being refused in main draw as a WC. Qualies in Linz cant be used, they already started and Timea can only play since Monday, which is too late.

Thats not much comfortable, you are right. But Timea had to register for Moscow, just like all Czech girls do every year (tough they never come). In Moscow, there are more points available. Why did Timea decide to play Luxembourg instead? Yes, we know, MMs are just perfect for her...
