Anne Keothavong - 3 time wildcard receiver makes big bucks!

Of the many British players given wildcards for direct entry into the main draws of the various events at Wimbledon, one player stands out for special mention. Anne Keothavong whose rankings did not allow her direct entry into the main draws of any events received wildcards for the Ladies’ Singles, Ladies’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles. She lost in the first round of each event but took home a combined paycheck of 13,115 GBP! (approx US$26,377) It’s good to be British!

true

and also true and what i didnt like was the fact that the people watching the match (tim and lopez) was the fact that they were cheering for lopez's mistakes. and in the past (in other grand slams) the commentators say how bad that is!but its ok if tim plays i guess!

to err is human to forgive...divine

They can't be blamed for giving their wildcards to Keothavong, it's not like there's anyone else to give one too

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

No, his record is not worse than Anne's. She has received WC's from 2001-07. So, that's 7 WC's in a row and no wins.

Keothavong is a lost cause and I may boycott Wimbledon next year should she receive another wildcard!

Re: Anne Keothavong - 3 time wildcard receiver makes big bucks!

And out of that 13 grand at least 2 grand will be lost in tax. And the other 11 will fund the rest of the year for Anne.

Re: Anne Keothavong - 3 time wildcard receiver makes big bucks!

But she's been the Brit number one. Who else could they give it too if you don't give it to your nation's number one player?

Good Luck In 2005:
[Martina Hingis] [Justine Henin-Hardenne]
[Cara Black] [Nadia Petrova] [Eugenia Linetskaya] [Patty Schnyder]
[Svetlana Kuznetsova] [Ai Sugiyama] [Su-Wei Hsieh] [Gisela Dulko]

[Maja Matezvic] [Karolina Sprem] [Eleni Daniilidou] [Maria Kirilenko] [Jelena Jankovic]
[Tathiana Garbin] [Timea Bacsinszky] [Kaia Kanepi] [Na Li] [Vera Douchevina]
