Maindraw Wildcard for Elke Clijsters

she get a Maindraw Wildcard.

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

100% agree

it seems the surname CLIJSTERS is enough to become a WC.

why she didn´t entered the qualifying?
it was possible without WC

Yes, and it won't help her one bit. She will most definitely receive 1 point for this tournament. She would have gotten at least 1 point in qualifying as well, and it would have been much better for her.

Strange to give Elke one. After all there are many more juniors with better results. i would have thought they would have given the wc to a German player.

there are 2 Wc for german players (Rittner + Müller)

but i don´t understand it.
i think it is a slap in the face for all german talents.
cause they work hard and then the WC get a junior from Belgium because she has a famous sister. this is a joke and a big motivation for all german talents.

I'm quite happy that they didn't give the wild-card to Anca. She usually plays better in MD if she qualified before. She reached a final that way.

BTW, can you refuse to take a wild-card and play QUAL instead?

Ugghhh f*cking repulsive!! The same thing is going to happen to Elke that happened to Torrey Gambill. People are going to eventually take the cue that she can't win matches beyond the 10K level (yet) and refuse to give them to her. They eventually stopped giving Torrey Gambill WC's and his best performance in his career so far is the 2nd round in a 15K qualifying event (his only win of his career)

To be honest, I wouldn't object to her getting a wildcard into the doubles as she has at least prove herself in that department. But if you win one round in 10K draws sporadically, what makes them think she'll win a round in a Tier II event, with a pretty strong field. I'd love to see her draw a top 15 player and get put in her place, as heartless as that sounds.

Don't get annoyed with Elke if you were offered a MD wildcard for Leipzig would you accept it or decline it. Elke would of been nuts to decline it.
