  1. Amazing win today and month overall for Bianca!
    A couple questions:
    1. What do you think are the chances of her getting a wildcard into Doha or Dubai seeing as she’s the hottest player in the Top 100 not entered into this tournaments?
    2. If she doesn’t get in, do you think she would play Acapulco (or the Indian Wells 125 – would she still enter these type of events now?) before Indian Wells? I guess it would depend on when the entry deadlines are for those tournaments?
    Appreciate your work Steph

    • She needs a break, which she’s about to take.
      There’s also Fed Cup.
      She can’t just “enter” tournaments. There’s a six-week advance deadline.

    • She’s entered in Acapulco (not the qualies, though. She won’t get into the main draw)
      -Hasn’t entered the IW125 yet. But the deadline’s not until Feb. 4. But if she hasn’t already, I doubt she will.
      -Indian Wells qualifying.
      -Guadalajara (125K second week of IW)
      -She should get straight into the Miami main draw.

      There would be no chance of getting wild cards in the Middle East. But it would make no sense to play them anyway, given she’s got another block of tournaments coming up. She’d just get hurt. There’s no rush.

    • “ITF ranking”.
      The whole structure has changed, with players having an ATP but also an ITF-only ranking, with a few spots in Challengers reserved for those entering with the (I want to say 5, might be more) highest “ITF rankings”.
      Also 48-player draws now. And only four players in qualifying, to have a few extras.
      His ITF ranking is 26. So that should get him into a lot of Challengers, where last year he had trouble getting into them. His currently ATP ranking is No. 417.
      Come to think of it, that might be why he played a bunch of Futures at the end of 2018. If so, very smart of him.
