Wimbledon Wildcards - Women


Now up to 290th ranked player as cut off for Qualies. Sarah Beth Grey only 13 out from qualifying by right. And I wonder how many of those players 290-300 would be turning up anyway.

I know a few didn't travel or struggled to get visas at short notice (Shapatava one of them although I think she would still be too far out).

Certainly worth someone like Naiktha signing in!

Naiktha and Maia do get a doubles wildcard. Good.

No surprise that the final doubles wild card goes unused, so the team of Bolsova/Neel get in instead.

 Rather odd they get a WC but weren't prepared to give Lissey and Liv one last year.

To give an indication of the impact using singles for entries has, Lissey and Liv are actually the 34th highest ranked pair in the draw on doubles rankings.

 I'm looking at Darts to see the seeding rankings and entry rankings. I see they are halfway down the list, and those below them (other than the WC's) all have better entry rankings.

The standout one is Desirae Krawczyk and Danielle Collins with a seeding ranking of 344 but an entry ranking of 21.

Lissey and Liv wouldn't have made the draw without a wildcard.

Yes, exactly the point I was making.

Yup. Just thought I'd expand on it a bit more  wink

Not really. Naiktha and Maia reached the final of Ilkley, narrowingly losing the MTB. Whether by choice or otherwise Lissey and Liv didn't play any grass tournaments last year.

 Emily Appleton is into the W25 doubles final in Portugal while her normal partner, Ali Colins, has maybe stopped at home to practice her darts against a picture of the Wimbledon committee.

 I noticed Emily has also entered the Bastad 125k with Quinn Gleason. So perhaps that partnership is on a break...

 Actually she is in Perigueux, France. They played indoors today, not on the outdoor clay.

 Indeedee, I was confusing myself. It is EWS that is in Portugal, at the SF stage.
