Arrow Wild Cards

Women
WC Melissa Torres (Mexico)
WC Ma. Emilia Salerni (Argentina)

WC Marcela Arroyo/Erika Clarke (Mexico/Mexico)

I don't know if the other WC was vanished or they gave it. The doubles WC is still unsure... but Melissa is really stupid if she doesn't play doubles.


Men in case you like one of them.
WC Miguel Gallardo (Mexico)
WC Francisco Clavet (Spain)
WC Gustavo Kuerten (Brazil)

WC Guillermo Carter/Luis Flores (Mexico/Mexico)

Why? Pitu deserves it. She s been injured a lot of time last year. She was a junior champion and now needs help.

You better show some respect to the sweetest tennis player Maria Emilia "Pitu" Salerni.



GO PITU

The 3rd WC should be awarded to a Gold Exempt...maybe that top 10 announced earlier in the week?

No that player was Hantuchova and she denied it. Last WC was to Salerni so I suppose the other WC was not given..pf.

So... Dani was the Top 10 player rumored then? She'd have to be retarded to play on clay the week before IW...

Probably Angelica would do better than any Mexican in the qualies

Go Angie!

In the web they have still a spot "Wild Card/Gold Exempt"

So as Daniela didn't wanted... I suppose it will vanish like last year.

No. It's to late. They suck.

Why not giving WC's at a normal time like a normal tournament...

I guess they were too busy drooling over Hantuchova to realize how people in Mexico like to see Mexicans

Good luck to Melissa.
I suggest giving a WC to a Polish player like Straczy, Marta or Sakowicz! They would beat Palme and Arroyo any day!
