Almost off-season and we are bound to be bored and looking for something to talk about, so might as well start the Wildcard speculations
entry lists should start coming out in the next few weeks.
Going to be interesting next year. We will have only 1 direct entrant in to Melbourne
so the fight will be more competitive than ever for wildcards. I think the MDWC will be
1. Barty 2. Dellacqua 3.Gajdosova 4.Dokic 5.Sanders I see that as pretty set in stone tbh, unless Dokic decides she wants to play qualies or something.... in that case.... the final one would be interesting.
As for qualies we will have Liv & Anastasia in direct, so that free's up some WC's. Arina might be a slight chance to make it also, which would be good.
Who knows if Sacha Jones will be healthy?
I think Birrell & Tjandramulia have put their hands up for QWC's - Perez, Bains & Hon will also be in the running for the youngsters.
I'm sure Azra & Vicky are a lock.
Will they throw Monique one? I know she is a bit "over the hill" in tennis years but she's still one of our best players imo and can win matches.
Jess & Sally probably should miss out this year but TA may cop out and just give them one, who knows.
I'm also interested to see who gets the Brisbane/Sydney/Hobart WC'S
I'll go with Barty & Dellacqua/Gajdosova for Bris.
Sydney.... I have no idea - probably just give one to Casey and then internationals for the rest, maybe Storm if she's fit.
