FRENCH OPEN : Who will get the wild cards??

8 wild cards :

one for an australian player : Alicia Molik (?) if she doesn t have protected ranking and wants to play, or maybe Casey Dellaqua or Sophie Ferguson, depends on the winner of the mini tournament to receive the WC, a little hope for Jelena Dokic...

7 others very likely for french players :

I think the following players will get it with 100% certitude :

All french girls between 100 and 200 = Séverine Brémond (coming back from an injury), Stéphanie Cohen Aloro (clay isn t her best surace but she has won ITF Biarritz), Aravane Rezaï (for me in top 100 by the end of 2006 ), Mathilde Johansson (in a slump but still #170)



Alizé Cornet (definitely the best french junior )

the last 2 : not sure, next players are Virginie Pichet, Pauline Parmentier, Aurélie Védy, Florence Haring, Julie Coin, Youlia Fedossova ad Mayline Andrieux

For me Virginie Pichet (good come back after injury, solid on clay) and Youlia Fedossova (promising talent) should receive the last spots

sad for Védy and Coin because they've improved thier game a lot, but Aurélie will receive a ticket for doubles I think and Julie will play qualies

French federaton has organized WC play-offs a few years ago but I don t think something will be this year

Last possibility : give the invitation to a rising star (Agniezska Radwanska, Anna Tatishvili...) or more likely to a former top player (Chanda Rubin?)

Roland Garros is coming I won t study anymore!


What do you think?????????????????????????????????????

No way Pichet or Fedossova are going to get a WC ahead of Parmentier...her run at last US Open should be enough to grant her a spot in MD...

2 WC were made official yesterday...Bremmond and Cohen Aloro will be in MD.
Though not confirmed, is obvious that Alizé will get another one...same as Rezai and probably Johansson. Then my choice is Parmentier and last French WC will be either Pichet or Fedossova.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Hampton got the USA wildcard this year. Will Kirkland get in qualies with her own rank?

fuck.

Polish tennis Federation applied for a Wild Card to qualies for Agnieszka Radwańska...I hope she will get one

For Main draw...I suppose Alicia can get it, probably Cornet, Pin (if she's not a direct entry)

Confirmed:
Oz Open WC (Molik, Pratt, Dellacqua, Fergueson...)
Bremond
Cohen-Aloro

Very likely:
Cornet- Shes been playing well recently in challengers and juniors. Plus shes the young darling of French tennis at the moment
Rezai- shes young and playing well
Johansson- shes young and at the highest ranking of her career

The last two will probably be Pichet and Parmentier, but Pauline has not been playing well recently, so Fedossova could sneak in there.

For qualifying, I think Guisard will be given one because she is really the second best junior after Cornet and even recorded a win over her last year

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

For qualies I think the wild cards will go to Aurélie Védy, Julie Coin, Mayline Andrieux, Florence Haring, Violette Huck, Estelle Guisard and the one between Pichet, Fedossova and Parmentier who won t have a wc (still Pauline and Virginie could get direct entry, good way to keep the wild card!) + Hampton

One for Radwanska could be a good option!

I am so sorry to write this but just don't give it to Chanda Rubin.

She will either be trashed or withdrawn the week-end before

Chanda is completely deserving of a wildcard but it's unlikely she'd take it anyway since she'd want a wildcard to Wimbledon.
