Ok Joe.Thanks for clearing that up.

So is there a limit to the number of players from each country that can enter Open Singles?

Yup, the number each country is allowed through national qualification depends on the number of members it has. The BFA gets 2x qualifiers in each category. Germany is one of the few which is allowed 3 as they have over 2000 'ITSF' registered members.

However, any player who qualifies as a result of ITSF tournament performance, finishing in the top 3 (men) or winning (junior, senior, women) an ITSF WCS singles, or finishing in the top 16 (men)/8 (women)/3(senior) in the end of years ITSF rankings is counted as extra to this. So Rob always qualifies this way, so plus the 2 players we have qualified through the UKC we have 3 world championship OS players. This is only true for singles, not doubles.

Poorly worded, but hope you can follow what I'm saying :wink:
