I would not give WC's to Pelletier or Drake!

Maureen Drake and Marie Eve Pelletier and probably Melanie Marois will undoubedtly get wildcards for the Montreal maindraw. I think other promising Canadian players such as Stephanie Dubois, Beier Ko, and Alexandrra Wozniak deserve WC's into this event. I mean Drake and Pelletier will get into quallies!!! And Besides, players like Dubois, Ko and Wozniak deserve it! SO HERE'S HOPING THEY GET WILDCARDS!

Pelletier deserves it...She still fights to get high on the tour....Drkae doesn't IMO.....She seems not to care about the tour anymore! And also, Beier doesn't deserve it as much as the other two girls cause she wasn't aprt of Fed Cup and is training in Florida and rarely plays tourneys here in Canada, as Steph won one and reached a final and Aleks reached a semi!

Maureen and Marie-Eve are Canada's best players. They deserve the wildcards.

Marie-Eve has been streaky this year, but she has had some decent wins, and with an okay draw could have a shot at winning a match in the maindraw. She's also been by far the biggest point earner of Canadians in 2004, so she easily deserves a wildcard.

Maureen's chances for a wildcard may by in pretty big doubt though. She didn't play Fed Cup, and her results this year have been very poor. She has direct entry into the qualifying, and I think she is better off playing there at this point.

I'd like to see Stephanie Dubois get a maindraw wildcard, she had a good showing last year in Toronto, and she won the 25k Hamilton tournament so I think she has earned the opportunity to play the maindraw. As for the other one, it's really anyone's guess. Ko has moved up well with some good results in Asia, but Wozniak is probably going to get a lot of support for her Fed Cup efforts. Marois is currently higher ranked than both, but her form has been very patchy since coming back.

I'd like to see Main Draw go to: Pelletier, Dubois, Marois

Qualifying: Wozniak, Ko, Srebrovic, and Biro

And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I would agree that Pelletier may possibly deserve a WC here, but definitely not Drake! As everyone says Dubois deserves it and I think Woznial too!

I'm sure Stephie and Alek will get a lot more WC in their career, but Maureen is not young anymore. I think TC is doing a good job not to put too much spotlight on the juniors, and I dont suppose they will start doing it now (Germany who did that is now in disaster). Not to mention this might be the only year this WTA tournament is held here. So good luck Maureen.

I don't think Maureen doesn't deserve it. I think wildcards are there to give a help up to struggling established professionals and veterans just as much as they are for juniors. If she got a kind draw, one or two good wins and her whole year and career is changed. She is higher ranked so she does deserve it.

Good luck!

Good luck for Iceland Fed Cup team

OMG, Alek actually got a WC into Montreal and takes on Asagoe, let's hope she is not bagelled.
If she comes here, I'll make sure to see her match.
