Roland Garros Wildcards

Frenchwomen Amandine Dulon, Tatiana Golovin, Anais Laurendon, Virginie Pichet and Camille Pin have also been handed places in the draw.

Australian Christina Wheeler, courtesy of an agreement between the French and Australian federations, was also awarded a wild card.

Three wild cards are still to be granted for the men's singles and two for the women's.

I want Eggy to come in here and verify this...but Golovin should not be allowed to get a WC.

c. (i) Between the date of a player’s fifteenth (15th) birthday and the day before her
sixteenth (16th) birthday a player may participate in a maximum of eight (8) professional
Tournaments plus the Championships (if she qualifies), Fed Cup, and three (3)
exhibition/non-Tour events.

(iii) These players are permitted to receive a total of three (3) Wild Cards as follows: two
(2) Wild Cards into the Main Draw or Qualifying Draws of any Sanex WTA Tour Tier I-V
Tournament or ITF Women’s Circuit event, and one (1) Wild Card into the Main Draw or
Qualifying Draw of any Sanex WTA Tour Tier III-V or ITF Women’s Circuit Tournaments.

Tatiana has already had her two WC's into maindraws...Indian Wells and Miami...

Maybe they changed the rules...

Is Arnaud di Pasquale a direct entry or does he need a wild card? Hope to see him at RG, he has a lot of points to defend and I like him.

Yeah....slams are exempt. They can give a 10 year old a WC if they want.....even though the WTA would be pissed.

Because, slams really aren't exempt....but they are, ya know what I mean?

Slams are strongly encouraged to abide by the rules, but don't always.

i'm hoping they'll leave one for Sandrine......
and ranking wise, i thought Celine Beigbeder
was ranked higher than Dulon and Pichet,
why didnt she get one........
and the last one i hope will go to Martina Hingis.
