WTA ranking if there is no main draw withdrawal before the end of qualifying
Draw of lucky loser order if there are known withdrawals before qualifying has been completed.
Report SamuelMertensBertens March 6, 2021 3:44 PM GMT
so if there are rumblings about Vika withdrawing but Vika for whatever reason waits with her announcement, Kaia can save energy and tank the 2st after losing the first 7-6 in 1 hr 20 mins.
Report SamuelMertensBertens March 6, 2021 3:48 PM GMT
wait, I suppose she can't tank even if she knows that Vika will withdraw, if she doesn't know when.

Report edy March 6, 2021 3:54 PM GMT
If there are enough withdrawals, then anyone can get drawn.
Report edy March 6, 2021 3:56 PM GMT
if there is one withdrawal, the two highest ranked losers will be drawn from. Don't know the progression, but there will always be a draw. Don't know if it stays at 50% chance or becomes 66% for two LL spots.
Report edy March 6, 2021 3:57 PM GMT
highest ranked losers from the final qualies round. If the no.1 qualifying seed loses in the first round, she ain't getting drawn from if there is one LL spot.

Out of the 14 finals she has reached on main tour level, 11 has been outside of Europe. And the only finals she has reached in Europe have been 3 GS finals, 2 Wimbledons and 1 RG. So she has never made the final of a tournament lower than Slam level in Europe.

are these tournaments of any use for upcoming players or is it just for betting companies, gamblers and tennis hipsters?
Report edy March 6, 2021 6:13 PM GMT
I think they are probably useful for players. Any additional opportunity to play will be good for them. It's done in Round Robin format, so they get five (I think) matches guaranteed in a week.

Prize money is 20k a week, so higher than the lowest ITF category. Couldn't find prize money distribution, but apparently everyone is guaranteed 400 bucks even if they lose all their matches.

Won't make you rich obviously, but I could imagine it being an easier time than on the lower end ITF circuit.
