French Open Wildcard

Ok I know its a little early but who does everyone think should get the wildcard into the French? Molik Pratty are definetly in and Sam should make it as she has barely any points to defend beforehand. I think Wheeler should get it again- she's the best chance of winning matches on clay.

It will certainly be interesting to see if they continue to spoonfeed Evie even though she has had a lousy year. For me I can't see anyone really deserving the darn thing based on results. I think Sam is the obvious choice if she doesn't get DE, other than that it could be anyone. What is Casey like on the clay? I wouldn't be surprised if TA passed over Christina as they haven't been keen to throw her a bone in the past.

I agree that a play off is the best option. Let them earn it...put the 4 highest ranked players in a play off.

No that wouldn't work...it should be 4, like it was in 2002 (Wheeler, Watson, Stewart, McQuillan).

Having 16 is too difficult, and also most of those players don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as a main draw WC! (btw you forgot Horiatopoulos )
