Angry Els Callens unsure about Wildcard

Ok this so pisses me of.

Elke Clijsters, ranked below 500 receives a maindraw wildcard without a doubt, but Belgium's third best player is unsure to get one

There are 3 wildcards, and now they're saying they don't know yet who to give to?

It would once again proove how many support Els gets from the Belgian Tennis Federations.... It has always been this way and it will always stay this way.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Ok, I think the reason why Els ins't 100% sure about the wildcard is because she's is the next "next-in" for the maindraw. And when one player will withdraw, she can enter the maindraw without a wildcard. Maja Matevzic is in doubt, cuz she still has a leg injury and her website tells she will skip some tournaments!....

C'mon Belgians

There are 3 WCs right?
1 for Els, 1 for Elke and 1 for a top-30 player who still wants to enter the main draw.

I think they should give one to Els, one to Kirsten, and let Elke play quali's.

Why did she get a WC again?? She got one last year..and Kirsten is the better singles player

The thing is tho, while Elke is most likely to lose in the 1st round of the main draw and win just 1 point, Kirsten will face a less good player so she could win QR2 points + bonus points, if she beats that player

I read on the news paper that if Els and Elke get a WC!

If one more player withdraw, Els won't need that WC and so they'll give that WC to Kirsten!

That's what was written!
