Wildcards

Highly-touted 15-year-old Sesil Karatantcheva of Bulgaria, young Americans Angela Haynes, Jamea Jackson, Alexa Glatch and Jessica Kirkland, and Viktoriya Kutuzova of the Ukraine have received wild cards into the women's main draw.

Qualifying wildcards will be announced later.

Great for Glatch -- hope she can get a win!

I'm surprised Vika got a WC. She's almost 17, and barely in the top 500.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

What the hell? They are going to make Shenay Perry qualify over Viktoriya Kutuzova who coudln't even have gotten into the Qualifying Draw. What a joke.

I think Vika is signed with IMG, same as Maria, so naturally they would like to see her get a WC, plus she has well over half of her points from last year came from this tournament. Shenay is also 20 years old, and plus Viktoriya is much more likely to draw publicity than Shenay could. We've seen that on the board.

She's expected to return this week, she's on the Entry List.

You really didn't have to bad rep me -- but then again we have a long history of going back and forth. And to think, we actually got a long at one point.

All I did was state my opinion on the truth. Shenay has never drawn much attention to herself -- you should know that since you are her biggest fan. Kutuzova is another decent looking blonde...just what IMG (Anna Kournikova at one point) and the WC commitees seem to embrace. I'm definately not putting down Shenay, because we both know that everyone loves the teeny-bopper sensation story, just see posts from 2 years ago on Viktoriya. Hell, Monique V is a perfect example of this whole concept. Got her ass whopped by a Jane Chi, yet she is probably the most asked about player who has never won a match! You don't see anyone giving WC's to Casoni now do you?
