Yes, I read it somewhere else too that she would need a WC.

Well, if you are not coming from a big tennis-country, it is hard to get WC's, regardless of the talent.

There was a time that I feared that she would never get into the top100: it seemed so hard for her to get the points as she could not get into MDs (not even in qualies), and she needs to play better players for improving.
Her grass season was OK, and that is why I went for her as uWP in Bucharest.

Decided to pick her as uWP for next week too :-) I know that this is foolish, but showing some faith/believe is the least I can do after her performance this week.

Bolsova was a Qualifier at the French Open. she made it to the round of 16, which sent her to be top-100.
Unfortunately, the deadline for Wimbledon was too early for her and she had to play Qualifiers.
As I have said countless times, this 6-week deadline, implemented when we didn't have a wide used and fast internet, should be shorten. 2 weeks should be enough for the cut-off.

Boldosa should have been in the Wimbledon Main Draw, instead she has to play Qualifiers.
Rybakina should not be wasting her energy playing Qualifiers at the US Open. I have no doubt she will 'kill' all those girls for a place in the Main Draw.... which should not be necessary.
