Anyway, Mary Gambale is from the same town as Danny from The Real World!

I was looking for WC receivers and could't find any then I saw an article from our Local Sports page (they sometimes make little mistakes) so I was't publishing it as my prediction (that's why I wrote "should"). I was just spreding the information I've got. Maybe I was't just clear enough or my english is unsufficient. Actually I don't know so much about USA tennisplayers so I could predict the WC receivers.

Go, go, go Estonian girls Kaia Kanepi, Maret Ani, Margit Rüütel
Also good luck to all others I like, there are just too many of them to write their names here...

I agree about Cohen, but not about Bradley. Bradley was the number one ranked player in the NCAA all year long, and, like Taylor, has won a $10K this summer. I'd says Sarah deserves it over Julia, but not Megan.

Payback for Gambale's RG WC, perhaps?

Yeah, that's why Parmentier got the WC. Strange that it was her, though, there are more talented French players that I thought would've gotten it.

I would have thought it would go to Cornet, but Permentier has the highest ranking who couldn't get in I think, so they probably gave it to her for that reason.

Ever since William Washington (Mashona's dad) threatened to sue the USTA a handful of years ago, they've been extremely lenient about giving US Open wild cards to minorities. It's a touchy subject, but it sure sucks for someone like Cory Ann Avants, who's about three years younger than Kops-Jones and ranked almost 200 spots higher.
