Dokic gets Wimbledon qualies WC

Philippoussis gets wild card for Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Mark Philippoussis, the 2003 Wimbledon runner-up, was one of eight men who received wild-card invitations Friday to play in the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.

Philippoussis has been plagued by injuries and he's currently ranked 176th.

Others getting wild cards were Romania's Andrei Pavel and six British men: Jamie Baker, Richard Bloomfield, Alex Bogdanovic, Jamie Delgado, Martin Lee, and Alan Mackin.

Women's wild cards went to: Australia's Alicia Molik, Belarus' Victoria Azarenka, Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska and five British players: Sarah Borwell, Naomi Cavaday, Anne Keothavong, Katie O'Brien and Melanie South.

Jelena Dokic, a semifinalist at Wimbledon in 2000, was given a wild-card entry into the women's qualifying event.

It would be hilarious if Jelena qualifies and beats Martina Hingis in the 1st round, again.

(But to be realistic, I will be supremely happy if she just qualifies.)

I wonder who the other Q WCs went to?

Hopefully Jelena can get back onto her feet.
