Disclaimer: She might be injured, in which case the following is rubbish.
Its all politics. The LTA have decided not to give her one because she is one of a few players that work outside of their system. Karen has not had a good year, granted, but she has had more success since last Wimbledon, is higher ranked and absolutely more deserving that Bagshaw, Mackenzie or Coombs. They would blatantly rather allow someone to be slaughtered just because they are their own player.
I just hope that if Navratilova declines her MD wildcard, that Karen will get that. I won't hold my breath though.
