Wimbledon Wildcards Announced

First set announced.

1. Heather Watson
2. Laura Robson
3. Katie O'Brien
4. Melanie South

Rest to be confirmed.

Naomi Broady and Anna Smith have been awarded wildcards into qualifying, as they were ineligible for the main draw being ranked outside the top 250 and not able to fall under the exceptions which allowed Heather and Laura in.

Tamira Paszek has also been awarded a qualifying wildcard.

Naomi Cavaday has elected to play qualifying.

Melanie seems to be an AELTC choice, she was automatically put forward by virtue of being in the top 250, but I don't think she was pushed by the LTA as a candidate.

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards Announced

The men's wildcards are hilarious:

Temuiraz Gabashvili, Andrey Kuznetsov, Nicolas Kiefer and Jamie Baker, with three still to be announced

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards Announced

Main draw WCs entirely predicable.

More interesting that Laura Robson and Sally Peers have got a WC into the doubles (they reached QF in AO this year). Maybe not surprising, but the organisers are obviously hoping for a repeat performance.

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards Announced

Last year's junior champ will surely get one too (I won't even attempt to spell her name)!

It'll be interesting to see who gets the remaining 3!

I think Lucic, Larcher de Brito & Mladenovic (I'd love Dokic to get one but I doubt it)

I'm not so sure about Lertcheewakarn getting one. Traditionally the junior winner only gets a qualifying WC, but last year was a special case since Robson is British.

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards Announced

They probably haven't decided if Lertcheewakarn will get a MDWC or QWC

Lertcheewakarn.
Hope she can do something with it since she toiled in Junior draws for so long to get it.

No both Radwanska sisters & Wozniacki got MDWCs the year after they won Juniors so its become a tradition in recent years!

Thanks for showing me how to spell Lertcheewakarn's name!
