Wildcards

How they could not give Christina Wheeler a wild card stuns me.

Sophie Ferguson is very average. She was slaughtered in qualifying at the coast last year and again this year. Never seen Olivia Lukaszewicz play so don't know if she deserves it or not.

Neither girls would win a match in qualifying let alone the main draw! This decision is a joke!

The full list

Chia Jung Chuang (Asian WC)
Tatiana Golovin (French WC)
Trudi Musgrave (Aus Unity Tour winner)
Samantha Stosur (playoff winner)
Evie Dominikovic
Casey Dellacqua
Olivia Lukaszewicz
Sophie Ferguson

Olivia and Sophie are both talented young girls, but giving them a free ride into the main draw is ridiculous...they will get slaughtered.

The most Sophie & Olivia should've gotten was a Qualifying WC. Anyway, good experience for them.

I wonder who got the Qualifying WCs?

Dubravka Cupac would have been a much better choice if we're talking juniors...and she actually won a match in qualifying this summer! The other two didn't win a set, and Sophie got thrashed in both her matches.

Thanks Dubz...glad to see you got in.

I expected those players, although Giltinan is a big surprise!?!

Horiatopoulos got one, according to Dubz in her thread (she must've just remembered)

So one more...will it be a foreign one?

Id say its one of Watson, Kriz, Stewart and D.Dominikovic....or Im completely off the mark.

Christina Wheeler really should have got one.... I'm stunned that Ferguson and Olivia got one really..... very bad choices. Cupac is the only youngster I would have chosen.

Does anyone know why Gabrielle Baker or Rachel Mc Quillan didn't get one in any tournaments? Still injured?
