Wildcards?

Are they fairly consistent with the wildcards from Birmingham? I can't really remember from last year!

Anyway, there should be ones for Elena, Amanda and Anne for MD (just because Amanda was not given one in Birmingham).

And Jane, Emily + Mel for quallies (and Karen if there is a fourth)

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

It would be better for Amanda to get a WC for qualies, she has all those points to defend, which she may find harder to do in the main draw.

Isn't Navratilova supposed to be be playing here?

I forgot about Nav

Karen will almost certainly miss out then

lta will not want a situation that they ahd with amanda last year. remember although she qualified, she missed out on playing at wimbledon.

i imagine that only 2 brits will get main draw wildcards, due to the number of gold/silver exempt players that will want in. perhaps the qualy wildcards will be announced after pre-qualies has finished
