What's wrong with Rossana's rank, except that it's sad to see her that low?

It is pretty good, but all the qualifiers happened to have great draws, all against winnable opponents.
:rolleyes:

that explanation is too easy for me ...
Kleinova and Ruano-Pascual are bigger names on the Tour. And some results of the losses (e.g. Rita Grande) are horrifying/horrible for these md-payers I guess.

So good luck to all the qualifiers who made it into r2 (and that isn't only dedicated to ALG ;) ) :wavey:

I already said in my first post it was good, what more do you want? :confused:

Truth is, in the first round all were winnable opponents. Some of them are good players, but you mentioned Rita Grande, she is in a huge slump right now. She can lose to anyone. Ruano is in a slump too, and Kleinova was never that good. I expected all the qualifiers to beat them, so it was no surprise.

That post was made after the 1st round. Some of the 2nd and 3rd rd wins were very impressive, but i wasnt talking about that in my first post.
