5 of 6 Qualifying Wildcards Announced

I called and got "looked down upon" because I am just a fan....I had to basically beg to get the information. Sheez...the tournaments sometimes act like the stupidest information is so confidential.

Anyways - here are the qualifying Wild Cards:

Shenay Perry (YAY!)

Vera Douchevina

Cory Ann Avants

Gisele Dulko

Jelena Jankovic


one still TBA.....and pff....3 of 5 are foreigners in our 2nd biggest tournament. what a joke.

I know TBE, but I'm still frustrated. I'd rather have Dewonder get a WC....not that I'm partial or anything

Its not so bad

Vera - she earned it by winning Orange Bowl

Dulko - she was runner up for Target Cup and since they gave Maria a MD WC instead of the Qualie WC she earned by winning the Target Cup, I understand why Gisela, plus like Eggy said, she is IMG

Shenay - Well deserved, plus she trains at Key Biscayne

Avants -

Jankovic - this is the only one I'm mad about...but again IMG

The last one will probably go to Lucic or some other IMG player.

Shenay was the obvious pick for one..if she didn't get one, there would have been a problem.

Dulko-I can understand this one, but I don't understand the Indian Wells WC she recieved

Vera-Orange Bowl winner, so she automatically gets one

Jankovic-I agree with BK, big ass thumbs down to this one

Cory Ann-very surprised she got one, but I'm so excited for her!

Lucic will probably get the other one, but I'd like to see someone get it who hasn't had 9 million chances. I actually wouldn't mind if Kirilenko got one.

I would really love players like Jankovic to earn their keep the hard way just like everyone else, rather than get these constant handouts...IMG or no IMG, it's just not fair.
