Why do TA let their pride get in the way concerning WC's? It's not as if Australia has a wide selection of players outside the MD cut-off to choose from. It would be a no brainer for anyone other than TA. You take the players who have had the best results in the past year, and you give them WC's.
If there are young promising players or players who have had injuries, then you might consider them if you think they are deserving. You don't fuck around with unimportant WC playoffs, claiming that players like Dokic must beat 15 year olds who are, in international tennis, no names, to deserve a WC.
How many Australian players have won multiple ITF tournaments in their careers? Let alone in the past year.
Gajdosova, Moore, and Dokic should be assured WC's. The other players, who haven't shown the results on the world tour like these 3 are those who should be being told, "Wildcards aren't handouts."
TA, prove everyone wrong. Show you have a functioning brain. Make the right decision (for once).
It sounds like I'm trying to bring down the Australian players, but I'm not. They are, for the most part, trying their hardest out there too. But it is just simply not fair that TA looks at our players on an even field when it comes to WCs. Some players deserve them way more than others, and that is just fact.
