Wildcards

So, it's common knowledge that most of the wildcards in Miami go to players who have the right management, rather than only Americans. It is very tough to pick, but they often go to young players. Here are the first four:

1. Michelle Larcher de Brito
2. Jelena Dokic
3. Heather Watson
4. Arantxa Rus
5. Petra Martic
6. Ajla Tomljanovic
7. Anastasia Pivovarova
8. Justine Henin

QWC:
Viki Tomova and Gabriela Dabrowski according to posters in this thread.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizť Cornet

Right management = IMG management (they own the tournament) = IMG acadamies (Bolletieri and Evert)

Most of the young players you mentioned will probably get some type of WC. I doubt that Pivovarova and Hendler will get another MDWC, maybe just qualies. They have had their chances and haven't really shown much in the last year.

I'm not too up on the new young players signed with IMG, but I think Heather Watson is almost a sure thing WC. Also Madison Keys, and Vicki Tomova are young IMG trained players, but they might be too young. Same with Sachia Vickery.

Oh wow that is cool! I thought that the WC for Miami after winning the Orange Bowl just applies to an American if they won the event.

1.Henin
2.Vandeweghe
3.Pivovarova
4.Robson
5.Tomljanovic
6.Glatch
7.Larcher de Brito
8.McHale

I want:
1.Daniilidou
2.Gerasimou
3.Georgatou
4.Papamichail
5.Konstantinidou
6.Latinopoulou
7.Sakkari
8.Kordolaimi

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

ANNA GERASIMOU-EIRINI GEORGATOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER
