Should Wimbledon authorities give Ash Barty a MDWC, a QWC or no WC? Vote now:
In recent years, since the LTA and Wimbledon authorities introduced a new rule, effectively banning Brits ranked outside the top 250 from receiving main draw wild cards (still in force this year), the door has been effectively opened to non-Brits to receive wild cards, making Wimbledon the only grand slam where the majority of wild cards can go to foreign players. One tradition introduced has been to give the previous year's junior champion a wild card into the main draw or sometimes, the qualifying draw.
Last year's junior champion, Ashleigh Barty of Australia, is in line for this WC. So do you think that as a talented junior, she deserves a main draw wild card or given the fact that she is ranked outside the top 250, has gained most of her ranking points in low grade Aussie $25ks, and has received a MDWC for the last two slams, that she should only get a QWC this time or not one at all.
Personally, I think today's abysmal performance against Petra Kvitova confirms that she is not yet main draw GS standard and should only receive a QWC. What do you think?
