Sanders was the last direct entrant at #265, looks like Bondarenko used her PR to enter. Parry and Bayerlova got in via WCs, so the likes of Dabrowski wouldn't have made the cut.I had forgot about RG quals, but there still managed to be a 24 player Q draw at Strasbourg the week before RG last year. Obviously the current climate will have had a big impact, and the condensed calendar with USO-Rome-RG all in quick succession, but I thought they'd at least be able to round up 12 players either from those inside the top 120, or a few more 250-300. Could have even had a few dubs specialists like Dabrowski.
Not in a very rare 8 person, 1 round draw, no, but could have in a 12-16 person, 2 round draw.Sanders was the last direct entrant at #265, looks like Bondarenko used her PR to enter. Parry and Bayerlova got in via WCs, so the likes of Dabrowski wouldn't have made the cut.
This is a replay of a match with possibly the greatest rally I've ever seen. It was at the French Open in 2016, buried away on one of the back courts. Myrtille was at the camera end, disappeared from view on nearly every shot and kept making these unbelievable returns which Christina had to dive all over the court to get back. Of course it was never going to get the Shot of the Day, but it was far superior to whatever did get that accolade.McHale plays M. Georges (FRA) in qualies
