Re: Wildcards

There are 5 WCs, however if I understand the rules only 4 will probably end up be used and the 5th will become another direct entry for the next in.

Re: Wildcards

Well if thats the case I would expect 2 or 3 wildcards to Brits and 1 or 2 to internationals.

Re: Wildcards

I cant see many top 10 players coming here unless someone has a disapointing Roland Garros.

Re: Wildcards

only 1 top ten can play here
unless LTA give more prize money out which is doubtful cos they got so many shit coaches to pay.

need another $280k for 2 top 10 players to play
then $250 for each one after



At International tournaments, if the first Top 10 Wild Card is not used, it may be awarded by the Tournament to any player, and if
the second Top 10 Wild Card is not used, it reverts back to “Next player in”.
In all instances, the awarding of the Top 10 Wild Card shall be subject to Age Eligibility and Prize Money Policy restrictions. The
wild cards must be named by the 4pm Qualifying Sign-In deadline.

Good luck to my favs

Re: Wildcards

Mel is 2 out so might get in Katie and Ballt unlikely.

Georgie is in the quallies draw and really doesn't deserve a MD WC based on current form, she'll be better off in qualifying.

Re: Wildcards

I think Mel is officially in. Lets hope she can build on it after dissapointing results at the French and slightly dissapointing loss from a set up at Nott!

Good that that frees up the WC, I guess now its definitely got to go to Katie, Bally and Naomi Cavaday? I thought Amanda Elliott would have a good shot at one considering her great form here last year, but I realy doubt it with her form this year seeing her drop 100 spots.... Perhaps Naomi, Tara or Jade Curtis might have an outside chance but I doubt it.
