I do NOT think you know the pro system very well but I could be wrong.

Read the quote about TT below
I assume that you know who Alexa Glatch and Alexis King are

Townsend reached two ITF Circuit semifinals:

One $50,000 event in Carson, CA, in May, losing to Alexa Glatch, 67(1), 26
One $10,000 event in Atlanta, GA, in July, losing to Alexis King, 46, 36

In June, she lost in the first round of a $50,000 event in Boston, MA, to Yasmin Schnack, 46, 36.

Townsend was granted a wildcard into the main draw of the U.S. women's doubles tournament, where she was paired with Jessica Pegula. The pair reached the third round.
As the world ITF #1 junior in the world, she would receive those WC regardless if she is with the USTA or not.
