If there was a proper calendar of upper tier challengers after Wimbledon, I suppose that more players would enter the USO Q in good form and ready for a breakthrough. But the USO qualies are typically a crapshoot and among the debutantes there are few hyped young hopefuls iPatty would care about or even players in shit hot form.
