I don't think Tara would have entered. She has no WTA ranking and it is too early for a 14 yr old to be paying qualies at WTA events. Plus she has to come all the way from the US.
I too hope Manisha, Rushmi, Isha/Ankita would get wildcards. Ankita is playing at Delhi grade-3 juniors this week, and I would be surprised if she does not reach the final on saturday there though. Wonder if she can even manage to get there for qualies on sunday... May be one of the local girls might get a wildcard. No local girl except Sania really making news, but if they pick some local girl, it will be Sandri Gangotri, Punam Reddy or Tejaswini Datla, but they are too young and it would be wasting a wildcard.
I still hope that Niru somehow shows up there; but as we have heard nothin on that yet, I guess that is not going to happen. I don't know whom to blame, but it is sad sad sad!
