Wild Cards

In the paper, it said that a WC is being held for Monica. She's not actually going to take it? The last time she played there was in 2000.

i should think that a WC would be more suitable for a younger player however it would be good for the tournament to have Monica on the line up.

it's the gold exempt wild-card that is being held, so its not a matter of giving to seles instead of a younger player. if monica doesn't take it patty will probably get it as i think at the moment she is the highest ranked gold-exempt player waiting to get in to the tournament.

Uh, helllo... Thank God for "real life" things, not some pro athlete who doesn't know you from a hole in the wall entering a tennis tournament.

Venus has until 12 midnight to decide if she wants to take a wild card.

In the paper today, Venus' agent said Venus is serving and hitting w/o pain. He said he doesn't think she'll ask for it, but he gave no definite answer because he said he didn't want to say no and then have Venus call him at 11 o'clock and decide to take it. So, while she more than liklely won't take it, she could.

Sounds good for her and the USO.

*NO* wildcards have been given out. Jen is in maindraw without use of one - she was 'next-in' on the maindraw list.

Venus, Lindsay, and Monica all declined.
