Do you suppose Rubin will get one if she asks? Capucine?

i know tennis australia gets a male and female wildcard, cause the french federation gets them for the aussie open...its an exchange system

On the men's side, I sincerely hope Peter Luczak gets the exchange wildcard. He is by far the best Australian player on clay that has no direct entry.

If Gael Monfils isn't ranked high enough, he'll get one...

Chanda would probably get one if she needed it but will she have an injury ranking?

Dokic??
or maybe Krajicek ( i don't know her ranking)


I don't know of any great young French talents, there may not be an overwhelming number, who knows maybe Navratilova will get another WC!!! :S

French women outside top 100:
118 PIN, CAMILLE
143 ROUSSEAU, CAPUCINE
219 PICHET, VIRGINIE
243 PARMENTIER, PAULINE
259 JOHANSSON, MATHILDE
279 HARING, FLORENCE
322 REZAI, ARAVANE
326 FEDOSSOVA, YOULIA
345 CHEVALIER, KILDINE

I guess at least 4 or 5 will come from this list or maybe there are some talented French juniors. Does anybody know of any that might be given a WC.

gasquet on the mens given his good form? definitely luczak should be the aussie i think, dominikovic as the aussie woman? i don't knwo any good young aussie women that are too far out of the ranking possibilities, i'd expect rousseau and pin, they usually get them

i think Sophie Ferguson should get WC rather than Dominikovic. she seems to have more potential.

I hope Youlia F gets one :D she's the next french hope!

no gasquet is already sure to be in the main draw ,no need a wild card.

Monfils yes.Clement yes.Simon perhaps, Tsonga also.

AS for the girls dont know, youlia fedossova perhaps, alizé cornet(junior)

there are too many players lol

Alize Cornet and Yulia Fedossova and maybe Violette Huck are the most prominent young players

Yes - the French and Australians have a reciprocal agreement for getting into each other's draws.

Sophie Ferguson and Mark Phillipoussis have gotten the Aussie WC's!

very good decision putting ferguson forward for the wild card because she is definitely australia's biggest hope for the future after alicia and stosur.

from watching her in australia i would think she could play quite well on clay as her groundies are heavily topspun

Capucine Rousseau will definitely get one, just like in the previous years

why the hell did they give it to scud? he's just wasting the WC and this isnt even wimbledon:mad:

Chanda WILL NOT get a Special Ranking because she has to be absent for 3 GS's in a row. Meaning that if she even comes back (next week she's scheduled too) she'll have to play Qualifying no matter what, unless she wins Berlin ;) which I doubt she will :tape:

Anywho, I don't think the French will giver a WC seeing as I'm pretty sure that they won't have any left when they hand them out to all the British and French players.

Does Anthony Dupuis have any shot at a Wildcard?

i know!! they should have given it to chanda :mad: :mad:

even though she's not australian or a man and hasn't played for ages i still give her a better chance of winning.

what a joke that chanda has to play qualifying. chanda is chanda and chanda is far too chanderish to have to play qualifying. poor chanda
:sad: :hearts: :confused:

Hooray Sophie - the players know that they got it though..like Soph got told a while back - so if someone personally knows Peter Luzcak or the Scud they should ask them...

Not Mark... Please!

That would be a major waste of a WC. He has been given too many already this year.

plus the fact that pete has won 10000 times more matches this yr and deserves it way way more

Mark deserves one. If he finally plays well he should reach at least the 3rd round with his game :)
