Talking !! Wildcard announced for Australian Open !!

They will give Mary Pierce, Christina Wheeler and Cindy Watson! Other men's draw will recieve Taylor Dent, son of former Australian player, Phil and another two guy I really can't remember what name.

No information about Anna Kournikova! <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> Probadly, she have to play Qualifying.

Alex ! Are you crazy ? <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

A player within the top100 is automatically placed in the main draw ; Anna never was lower than 71-73 and should definetly in

Question on Fabricia Zuluaga though who went down the "charts" due to injury as well

Hey, Bram! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> Where are you been in few weeks?

Back to my answer from your question, she's Australian. You can see her results at Aussie Assaults in Australian Open Forum <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Wheeler and Watson were announced a couple weeks ago...so does this mean Pierce has the French wildcard?

The Asian one is still to be decided, so that leaves 4 open...

Glad Christina has a WC <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Pierce is French so that makes it a French WC , they're not going to give out another one.<br /> Plus Gold Exempts dont count in Slams.

Good luck to my favs

Alex, I think that the McQuillan comeback was great stuff 2001 - do you have any idea why this happened or, asked differently, why there was this slump ?

I think that in the early 90ies, Bradtke, McQuillan and the others profit a bit more from the Asian tour which was around spring and autumn and left them alone with the big names in Europe and they themselves winning those events ; when they ended, possibilities to headline events were rare, right ?

What does that mean TBE, that gold exempts don't count in Slams?

<br />And why does Mary need a WC if she has an injury protected ranking?

Slams are run by the ITF and not by the WTA which gives out Gold Exempt status for players on the Tour only.

but if you miss 3 slams in a row and your rank slips down then you may use a Special Rank to get into a slam.

Good luck to my favs

thanks for the reply...

<br />but since Mary missed the last three Slams- why did the Aussie Federation have to burn up a WC on her?
