Does anybody know about this ?

I think last year pre-qualfications happened during Roland Garros, so there should be some news now, shouldn't it ?

i can't find anything anywhere...

Prequalies are this week, after the announcement of the first batch of wildcards.

According to the BBC website the first wildcards have gone to Elena Baltacha, Amanda Janes, Anne Keothavong, Katie O'Brien, Cara Black and Jelena Dokic. However it also says that there are 3 more to allocate, so possibly Jelena's is for the qualies.

Pre-qualifying begins tomorrow

the winner will recieve a main draw wildcard, as will likely teh runner-up seeing as there are 3 spare (the last one may well go to rubin)

Some interesting match ups!
O'donoghue vs. Bagshaw could be interesting
As should Peterzan vs. Curtis
I think Hawkins is capable of upsetting Llewellyn!
I think the quarterfinals will look like:

O'donoghue vs. South--------------O'donoghue in 3 sets
Borwell vs. Collin-------------------Borwell in 2 sets
Curtis(;)) vs. Paterson--------------Paterson in 2 sets
Llewellyn vs. Webley Smith----------Llewellyn in 3 sets

O'donoghue vs. Borwell--------------Borwell in 3 sets
Paterson vs. Llewellyn---------------Llewellyn in 3 sets

Llewellyn vs. Borwell-----------------Borwell in 3 sets

That's just my prediction! ;)

A Maindraw Wimbledon WC :) and hopefully the runner up too

Winner and runner-up get maindraw wildcards I believe. The rest can still get qualifying wildcards I think.

I also believe that is the case. Which leaves us to wonder whether the last Main Draw WC will go to Navratilova or not.

The winner definitely gets one, and usually the runner up also gets one, although this isn't definate, so the LTA can mess about with it to suit them :rolleyes:

I think they may find a wildcard for Jade Curtis somewhere, either in the maindraw or qualifying draw.

Gut says

O'donoghue vs. Bagshaw
Fritche vs. South
Borwell vs. Baker
Khan vs. Collin
Peterzan vs. Curtis
Coles vs. Paterson
Llewellyn vs. Hawkins
Dossor vs. Webley Smith (no, really)

THEN

Bagshaw vs South
Borwell vs Collin
Peterzan vs Paterson
Llewellyn vs Dossor

THEN

South vs Borwell
Peterzan vs Llewellyn

THEN

Llewellyn vs South

That's not what I personally want, but I think that's how it'll go. Grass court form into account and all... DON'T HURT ME!

I say

O'donoghue vs. Bagshaw
Fritche vs. South
Borwell vs. Baker
Khan vs. Collin
Peterzan vs. Curtis
Coles vs. Paterson
Llewellyn vs. Hawkins
Dossor vs. Webley Smith

THEN

Bagshaw vs South
Borwell vs Collin
Curtis vs Paterson
Llewellyn vs Webley-Smith

THEN

South vs Borwell
Paterson vs Llewellyn

THEN

Llewellyn vs Borwell

(I hope Llewellyn wins, I don't want her slight success just to be a fluke like we've had so much in the past)

no she wouldn't as I think it would onlbe her second tournament.

Alright Jade keep it up!!!

I think she deserves a Q wildcard if she doesn't get MD here. She has potential, and she is like a year old with room to grow from experience. That one photo of her a Wimbledon last year....she looks like an infant!

alwayshingis
Jun 8th, 2005, 11:14 PM
no she wouldn't as I think it would onlbe her second tournament.

She has played seven tournaments in the past year, but only received rankings points at one of then (the 25K in Jersey), so yes, it would only be her second tournament with points.

I can't wait to see how Jade does against Rebecca.
She should at least earn a Qualifying wildcard for this performance here if she doesn't get the main draw one. What? Do my ears deceive me? Do we have a British player worth getting excited about?
