I dont know anything about wild cards but with many Russians waiting,It is bit impossible for Kiki to take a wild card.

I would love to see through.

Linetskaya WC


Kremlin Cup organizers keep wild cards for Russians


17:29|05/ 10/ 2005


MOSCOW, October 5 (RIA Novosti) - Organizers of the Kremlin Cup 2005 international tennis tournament, set in Moscow for October 8-16, said they would award wild cards for the tournament to Russians, despite bids from foreign players.

The Russian Tennis Federation president and the tournament's Board of Directors Chairman Shamil Tarpishchev said organizers had proffered awarding wild cards for men's singles to Dmity Tursunov and Teimuraz Gabashvily, rather than to Australian Mark Phillipousis and Spain's Alberto Costa.

Yevgenia Linetskaya was also awarded a wild card for women's singles. Two wild cards, one for men's and one for women's singles, have yet to be awarded, Tarpishchev said.

Top tennis players will participate in the women's tournament, including Mariya Sharapova, ranked first in the world by the Women's Tennis Association, Tarpishchev said, adding that the tournament sought out more stars from men's tennis it would have had to pay extra for them.

"We gave up buying players since we decided the tournament is competitive as it is," he said. The total prize fund for the ladies' tournament is $1.3 million, whereas $1 million is on offer for the men.

Good luck to my favs

The WTA one is Gold / Silver Exempt only right? I thought the tournament directors can give it to whoever they want, as long as that player is Gold / Silver exempt

thats down to WTA, they hold that WC right, and can give it back to the directors if there are no options for Gold/Silver.


Maria Kirilenko has asked for the 2nd WC

Good luck to my favs

Good for Kirilenko, although I suppose with Sharapova's injury problems they wouldn't take a wildcard into doubles together anyway...

Great for Linetskaya too...

Mary Pierce could ask for the Wta Wild card cause she's not sure to have enought points to go LA !

But nothing is sure, even Mary is probably not really sure of what's the best to do !

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

Pierce should not even think about going there.. Russian media will be all over her for US Open incident and Russian public will boo her to death..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

I think Mary can handle it, even a showdown with Elena

Besides, the stands at the Kremlin Cup are usually very empty so even if they all booed Mary it may not be that loud
