Us Open Wcs???????

Who does everyone think deserves them, stick to american players because thats who will be receiving them..
I think it will come down to these.
Maindraw
1. Jamea Jackson
2. Amber Liu for winning NCAAS
3. Ashley Harkelroad but probably wont end up needing one now
4. Jess Kirkland 2 25 k titles and a MD win at tier 2 last week.
5. THe U18 nationals winner
I would say these are pretty much the only guarantees. Last 3 will be tricky, guessing id say
6. Kelly McCain
7. Carly Gullicson seems to have the usta support behind her even though been a shitty year.
8. Angela Haynes same reason.
Qualies. assuming kristen schkulbir and Cory Ann make it on their rankings now.
1. Meg Falcon
2. Jess Nguyen
3. Jewel Peterson
4. Varvara Lepchenko if she actually is representing the USA
5. Alexa Glatch
6. Sunitha Rao
7 Mary Gambale
8 Alexandra Mueller

Other contenders the UBerois but if there switchin to India i wouldnt give them WCs, Tiffany Dabek-Diana Ospina 2 highest ranked americans who prob wont get in. Martina Nav if she asks for one dont see too many other options really. JUlia Cohen?? Krysty Marcio?? Bea Bielik??

I just asked a related question a few days ago about Sesil Karatancheva. The thing is, she is still ranked so low that she probably won't be granted direct entry to the qualies. Without a WC, she won't be able to play at all. That would be a shame since she has been boasting about winning the USO. (Not that anyone believes that.)

Her rank def would get her in qualies not sure if shes allowed to actually play cuz of her age not sure if shes passed the age since wimby and roland garros when she wasnt allowed to play.. NO chance the USTA will give her a MD WC. USA PLayers only

Bea Bielik

If she gets one, it would be qualies, but I doubt it.

She has done absolutely NOTHING this year.

Your first 5 I think are definites as well, although Ashley will probably get into the main draw assuming some one withdraws, so let's cut it down to the first 4.

I think Angela Haynes will almost definitely get one, and probably even Alexandra Stevenson, even though she has had a dreadful year.

Look for the remaining two to go to either Cory Ann Avants, Bethanie Mattek, Abigail Spears, or Kelly McCain.

I'm sure Monica Seles will get one...if she's wanting to play.

And I've said all along that Navratilova will take a wild-card in singles.

Bethanie Mattek can make a good case for one, coming off her $50k challenger win yesterday. In fact, she was talking pretty confidently about being at the Open this year, so she may already know she's getting a main draw wild card. As for Bea Bielik, she's had injuries this year (knee and foot), which the USTA might take into account by giving her a wild card into the qualies. She lives right down the road from the USTA National Tennis Center and practices there during the year, so it's still a good hometown story.

But, Abigail has improved dramatically over the past year.

Heck, they gave one to Washington two year's ago, and she was older than Abigail is right now.

As for Alexa, I'm not sure if she went over her playing limit yet, we'll just have to see. She has been playing very well in the challengers in the past month or so.

These might be long shots, but I would throw Tanner Cochran, Ahsha Rolle, and Iris Ichim into the mix as possible qualifying wild cards. They haven't done anything huge this year, but they're still teenagers. They liked Tanner enough to give her one last year.

It would be ridicuous not to give one to Kirkland. She was a good second serve away from having a really close match with Petrova in LA, and she's only 16. (But she'll probably at least get quallies) And I want Bea to get one though she doesn't deserve MD, but quallies though

I would say:

1) Liu
2) 18's winner
3) Mattek
4) Haynes
5) Kirkland
6) McCain

I refuse to even consider Alex Stevenson due to disagreeability. And any of these can be bumped for Nav and Monica if they play.

quallies:

Spears
McCain
Jackson
Avants
Gullickson
Cochran
Peterson?
Nguyen?
Uberois?
