Is there any chance of Jelena getting a WC from tennis Australia for the USO?

I know she probably won't but I don't think Stosur needs one and she seems like the best candidate right now. Then again, Jessica Moore also won a 25k but Jelena has had such impressive results. If she wins the 25k 2 weeks from now, I think they should give her it.

Don't know exactly how T.A argues about that question, but I really doubt they will give Jelena the wildcard

I think Jelena would prefer to play qualifying. Till now, I can't remember her playing someone from top 100 who'd be in main draw, so it may be hard for her to play a top 100 directly.

I'm sure TA will give that wild card to Jessica Moore. She's young and having a lot of great results on the ITF circuit plus I think she won a round at a grand slam recently, just can't remember which one. It would be better for Jelena to play in qualifying anyways and I think that's what she wants.

No i'm sure that the wildcard will either go to Moore or Molik.

I think qualifying would be much better for JD anyway!

I think by now those who have followed TA doings should relise that player needs to be from the TA system in order to gain any offical WC-s from TA. Dokic have been on her own since she started to play for OZ.

So NO...

Re: Is there any chance of Jelena getting a WC from tennis Australia for the USO?

I don't think Jelena will get the US Open wildcard.
I hope Jessica Moore gets the US Open wildcard. She is young, talented and ranked quite highly for one so young.

Then again, I would much prefer Dokic to get the wildcard than Alicia Molik, who has done diddly squat this year...Molik is turning into the Mark Philippoussis of Aussie women's tennis, just rock up and expect the wildcard.
The fairest way to decide is for a playoff between these three...but I doubt TA will do that.

Regardless, if Jelena needs a wildcard, she will be given one for the 2009 Australian Open, no questions asked.

And Cat's Pajama's, Jessica won a round at the Australian Open this year

Even if they would offer her MDWC, she shouldnt take it.

Stay away.
