Riske is a stupid choice. She will do well because it is indoors but hello, Australia isn't ...... and Riske won't be on the top 2 show courts to get inside an indoors court.

The USTA signed a agreement to host it in Atlanta, GA. In December, in Atlanta it is about 20-30 degrees F outside. Thats probably why the play indoors.

This.

I hope BMS, Glatch, or Keys win

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.

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

I like her, but this is NOT an indoor slam

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

I don't see why Alison is getting so much crap either, however I do agree that she'd be a terrible choice for the AO wildcard. I'd be happy with Glatch, Keys, Sanchez, Burdette, or Mattek-Sands winning this.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: USTA Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs: December 14-16, 2012

I'm good with anyone winning this except Falconi, Riske, or Cohen. I have a feeling Madison will win it though. I think it also depends on how BMS is playing...I can never figure her out and if she's motivated.
