Elke Clijsters receives yet another MD wildcard

she's garantueed a spot into the maindraw for Luxemburg

WC SCHAUL, CLAUDINE LUX-76
WC CLIJSTERS, ELKE BEL-402
WC ?


Who's the lucky one to get her in R1?

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Wow, obviously she really impressed the organizers with her straight-sets loss in qualies last year.

Oh yeah, and not to forget her magnificent performance last week: losing 2 and 1 against Woolley (?).

This is really sad... a girl with NO potential whatsoever keeps denying other players of a place in the draw..players who have waaayyy more potential than her.

Has this girl even won a match at wta-tour level yet?!

Always bet on black!

Kristen Flipkens who has won back to back junior GS´s gets only a wildcard for qualifying and Elke who is older and hasn´t done nearly as much gets one for the maindraw?!! Hmm....

Always bet on black!

Maybe Justine should adopt her. Then Kirsten has a big sister too, who helps her in the tournaments.

Strangely, in Germany neither Rittner nor Barna received a Wild Card. I'm not sure, don't think A. Kerber received a Wild Card Qual either.

Exactly...and hey, who knows...maybe in the future Elke must help her big sister into the tournaments, when she takes over the number one spot from Kim.
