Yes, I know oc there will be WCs, but when you first look at those Ilkley lists... you wouldn't think this is a UK based tournament.

Yep, Harriet is currently the only GB player on the Ilkley MD or Q lists. Our next player is Naiktha, 29th alt.

She's entered in the 3 grass junior tournaments (Nottingham, Roehampton and Wimbledon)

I know she isnt British, but...I thought Sharapova had a several year deal to support Birmingham after they gave her a wild card on her return from her ban? Doesnt feel like that relationship ended up being particularly productive then if she is now playing Mallorca. Not that I would miss her much, but still.

After a week of training in Mallorca, Maria Sharapova has accepted a WC into the tournament (officially announced by the event).

Keys out of Birmingham so Konta in main draw.

Since the US Open 2017, Keys has played 68 matches, and amazingly, 36 of those have been at the Grand Slams and she's only 24, so not as if she's a Serena or Venus and just concentrating on the slams. She's had her fair share of injuries in her career, but there's not really been a prolonged period absence in that spell either, it's mainly been early WTA exits or skipping the odd event as a precaution.

Good news that Jo is in directly as that should free up a GB WC.

Jo should be 7th seed in Birmingham, which is quite a feat considering she hadn't made it in on the original entry list. Heather and Swan are not entered in Ilkley, so barring a surprise return for Boulter should have the MDWCs for Birmingham. Naomi is also not entered in Ilkley so it seems like she has a QWC for Birmingham. But she is still in singles and doubles in Manchester and being the top seed in doubles could reach the final which is not scheduled until Sunday, so she may have to take a WC in Ilkley. I had expected Katy and Jodie to have QWC for Birmingham, but it looks like Katy may have joined Jodie on the injury list. Gabi hasn't had a WTA WC this grass season yet, so I think may get one for Birmingham qualifying if she is not still in Manchester at the end of tomorrow. Maia and Naiktha will probably get WCs to Ilkley to support Harriet in carrying British hope's there, so I'm not sure who the other Birmingham QWCs will go to. They went to Sam and Tara last year, so perhaps the same again?

There were a batch of general Ilkley withdrawals yesterday, including Harriet, so I'd imagine she will be one of the 2 Birmingham MDWCs and a QWC for Swan.

Oh dear. So Ilkley is going to a non event from a British women's POV then.

Yeah, it's a bit of a shame when someone is already in a main draw (or very likely would have been in Harriet's case) and then pull out to get a WC elsewhere because it just means one less GB player in action, and also less chance of general success - Harriet might have been able to do OK in that Ilkley field. However, from her POV, if she got another relatively kind draw in Birmingham, someone just sneaking in, or not great on grass, or a qualifier, like she did in Eastbourne last year with the lesser Pliskova, then it's far better and she'll probably be on TV as well - of course if she draws a top player then it's different, but she could still consider it good prep for Wimbledon.

Ilkley is going to worse than Surbiton from a GB perspective. The field is similar, but not quite as strong, there'll be no Heather in directly and the WCs will be on a similar level to Manchester, but in a much tougher field, e.g. Asia Muhammed, who Sam beat, isn't even in qualifying currently, yet she was main draw in Manchester.

 From both mens and womens perspectives, we dont have any direct entry Brits, so all will come from wild cards or anyone that manages to qualify. 

At the top of the womens draw, Mladenovic has now got into Birmingham due to withdrawals there and, as such, withdrawn from Ilkley which is sad - I am taking my Dad (or more accurately he is taking me) and id whats apped him the other day to say that the French mixed doubles finalist Mladenovic was playing - and now she isnt. 

We are going on Sunday, finals day, so dont really expect any  Brits anyway to be frank!
