Christina won the WC playoff, so they didn't pick her anyway. Admaczak beat Vesnina, a decent player herself and Jess Moore is currrently 5-5 at Hobart with Alona Bondarenko. I don't blame them for not picking Jelena to be honest.
I completely agree that Monique deserves her wildcard. Having beaten Vesnina, who never loses to lowly opponenets such as Kloesel, Bascinsky, Castano, Castellvi, Uberoi, Laine, Fislova or Uvarova just proves that Monique is up to the standards of grand slam play.
Moore has already received her wildcard, regardless of how well she plays today. That can only mean that she is being picked on the grounds of her past results. Well, I guess she did score an upset victory over world number 842 Acquistapace in 2006, took two games from world number 2 Svetlana Kuznetsova, avenged her 2006 loss to Daniela Dominikovic at Rockhampton and beat Gajdosova, along with a slew of other top 400 opponents on the way to her first Australian
25k. Hell, didn't one of our posters here beat Dominikovic in a practice match? Why not give her the wildcard instead!
But what's that I hear you say? That's where our youth policy comes into play? Well you'd be correct. Still a young lady of 17
, Moore has plenty of time to fullfil her potential and is already ranking in at 376. Especially impressive and wildcard worthy when you consider that Dokic had already defeated world number one Martina Hingis on her way to the Wimbledon quarterfinals and finished 1999 at world number 43, as a 16
So yep, I guess that justifies the selections perfectly.
