Wild cards??

I've just read an article about Marinne Giraud from Mauritius asking for a WC in women singles. Anybody knows how many Wild cards are going to be given and what are the criterias except FC. For sure ranking is important but I do remember they gave one to Neyssa Etienne in Sydney when she had no ranking.

I hope there will be at least one player from Africa!

Informations welcome!
