Osaka should do well here... giving her support by selecting her as uWP

However, maybe she's playing qualies, for those lists are not posted, as yet. If she's not playing any event up to Wimby, not saying a lot for her.  Yet, she's currently overranked at 73rd anyway, for her ranking points are coming from ITF events and at 22 may be just a career ITF player, tho' enabling her to earn enough ranking points to qualify for Cincy and the USO in the summer, while playing her beloved WTT in July and August.  #ed_op#img src="/board/richedit/smileys/Rolleyes/5.gif"#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Yet, the same holds for Aiava. After playing the 100k at Surbiton, she's not on the acceptance list for the last 3 100k's in Britain (Manchester, Ilkey and the Southseas event, the latter lacking a qualifying draw prior to Wimby). It appears Taylor and Destanee are joined at the hip in the area of  player mismanagement. #ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

However, Vickery gave her a tough match at IW and Kristie Ahn (her next opponent if she gets by Allertova and who dominated Naomi at Nottingham last year 6-1 6-1) gave me pause, in addition to Konta being in this draw who Naomi can't beat. So, I left it alone..... #ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

I think Aiava and Taylor don't have anyone to plan their trips.
Tayor basically plays small home events. She is local ITF.
Taylor just made at $80K in France. You would think she would head to England to play a couple of tournaments. She's got the money to pay for it.

Don't get caught up by the 2nd and 3rd set scores, for there were a ton of deuce games in those sets. Naomi just won game point in tiebreaks. It was a close match.

If not, coupled with skipping the 4 ITF 100ks in England prior to Wimby doesn't say a lot for her and her coach, who is likely planning her schedule.  #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#i#ed_cl#Same for Destanee, who is currently ranked 198th. Given her low ranking and now being off tourney restrictions at age 18, only playing one of the 100ks in England doesn't make sense either. She has a coach, who is likely doing the same as DY's dad is doing for Taylor in planning her schedule for events. #ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl#

I was just highlighting how inefficient whoever takes care of the schedule is.

Nice that Naomi's match with Allertova is on at about 8 a.m. here in the Midwest (3rd match up on Center). Yet, would've liked to have seen Mona's match with Ribby but that's at 5 a.m.

so far today, every match went 3-set, men and women.
Kuzmova gonna wait for a long long time before taking the court. Current matches all look like 3-setters too.

Irritating that after all this time this morning, Naomi's and Viktoria's matches are on at the same time. Viktoria about to lose the lst set after being broken 3-4.
