 Thanks for this, Lambda

It's an interesting mix

Obviously no Russians (presumably political decision?). No Pushkareva, nor Efremova, etc.

And I haven't checked against the criteria - there were so many places this year from the qualifying cometitions, there was actually far fewer (only 8) truly discretionary places.

Yeri Hong is a 'big' name, being still only 12

Am I imagining things....the draw says Gabby Read and not Hannah Read. I thought it originally said Hannah Read but somehow it now doesn't? I wonder if it's the same referee who was at Roehampton last week?!

 THat's really funny biggrin

Yes, the draws on the Wimbledon site itself are fine - Hannah Read plays Valentova (horrible draw)

But on the ITF site it says Gabby Read plays Valentova .....confuse

I believe Gabby is Hannah's younger sister. Perhaps the ref knows the family! Easy mistake I suppose. Yeah, horrible draw for many - lots of the overseas girls are really very good.

 Some are very well ranked but have no form on grass (Hannah Klugman's opponent wasn;t great this week at Roehampton so hopefully that applies to her....)

But Valentova has obviously made the final which seems rather ominous.....

Well, having said that Valentova was an obvious dangerous player here, having made the final in Roehampton, she's how gone and retired from her final, given a walkover, I believe....
So there's a chance that Hannah Read either plays someone else, or gets a rather hampered Valentova (or that Valentova is perfectly fine, come the R1 Wimbly match, of course)

 She 'retired 'from the Roehampton final without playing a shot so may be injured/tired ?
