The final stop before Roland Garros is here. In addition to the three tournaments above, we'll also have Roland Garros qualifying starting Monday.

yesterday this comment would have been justifiable when she had major trouble in the first round of qualies, but everybody knows Jule Niemeier. I've talked about her at length on this forum.

yes Sad
Vera has do so much wear and tear on her body to climb the rankings. When she is comfortably within 100 and have direct acceptance to Slams again, she'll get another big injury again and have to start over. Just looking at her results in 20-21, it's ridiculous that she's not in the the top 100 (she's 39 in the race). Last time she climbed back to the top 100, in 2019, she missed everything after Roland Garros and when she came back in Feb 2020 she had fallen down to 474 PlainPlain And this keeps screwing her over as she has almost zero points from that time frame where the rest get a boost in form of brozen points.

Number one seed in qualies does not necessarily mean that that person was the first in line on the alternate list, because the qualies seeding is determined using the rankings from a different date than is used for the direct entry (and alternates) for the main draw.

The entry deadline for slams is six weeks ahead of the event's start (so in this case mid April). The qualies seeding will be using the rankings from last Monday, so it included Vera's decent Rome showing.

When Flipkens withdrew earlier today, Buzarnescu entered the main draw as the alternate replacing the Belgian. Buzarnescu was #5 on the Alternate list. Zvonareva was #16, so she missed out on the main draw by much more than one withdrawal.

not an easy draw either. AKS potentially in final round of qualies. I saw several good players in the qualies. There must be plenty of mugs in the main draw that are worse than Vera, Errani, AKS etc.

Haven't checked, but she should hopefully been ranked high enough for direct entry into Wimbledon (entry deadline after Rome I think)

just needs to not get injured in the upcoming weeks then. What about venus at 104?
By:
edy
When: 23 May 21 22:25
Venus didn't because there are some protected ranking entrants amongst the original 104 main draw entrants. Third on the alternates list though, so should likely be entered directly after some withdrawals.
By:
SamuelMertensBertens
When: 23 May 21 22:27
Wimbledon probably the only place I don't mind seeing Venus now.

1m I’m saddened to share that after consulting with my medical team I’ve made the difficult decision to withdrawal from
@rolandgarros. Unfortunately my shoulder has been bothering me and while medical tests look good, it is for the best to rest. See you in 2022, Roland-Garros.
