Petkovic was drawn as the LL, not Vikhlyantseva.

People who see conspiracy theories in everything :help:
I think that if now there is another withdraw then Vikhlyantseva gets in as best ranked and no draw required.
Imagine if Wozniacki retires..lol鈥he would go directly in second round! And people will talk big :eek:h:

Even bigger conspiracy! The organizers knew from Caro that she wouldn鈥檛 play, but asked her to wait with her formal withdrawal until a LL would take her place and that way ensuring Vikhlyantseva in R2. :rolls:

The organizers absolutely do not know, but the russian hackers know it

Potopova directly in Quarters make more sense rather than a LL in round 2...
What are the rules ? It seems illogical IMHO to see a LL in second round.

AS there was 5 places known before hand the LL place is drawn from all 4 losers.

Has there only been 4 Q places & the FQR matches taking place without knowing someone will withdraw then the highest ranked loser gets in

So they randomly drew Petko's name ahead of Natalia's to get the lucky loser spot?

Of course not. :rolleyes: Putin is interested in building the Nord Stream and wanted to ingratiate himself with Merkel. In addition, Petko is ethnic Serbian and close to Russia, due to her Orthodox religion.
