Zemonova (sp?) Won the NCAA championships. I'm sure everyone was expecting Amber to win it again, so I doubt she will actually recieve the wildcard. It is a shame :(

MD: I agree with Harkleroad, Haynes, Gullickson, Kirkland & Mattek. I'd swap Glatch with Chanda Rubin though.
Q: Agree with Avants, Uberoi, Ditty & Cargill. Glatch as a qual WC, I don't think Bradley will get one. Other possibilities are: Alexandra Stevenson, Tara Snyder, Tiffany Eklov & Teryn Ashley.

Does the winner of the USTA 18s still get an automatic wild card? That's going on right now, with Gambale and Glatch as the top two seeds. I'm assuming the winner gets into the main draw and the losing finalist gets into qualies.

Rubin, Harkleroad, Kirkland, and Haynes are probably all slam dunks. Gullickson's been playing really well and is still only 18, so I'm sure she'll get in too. My hunches for the last two spots would be Stevenson and Shenay Perry...but only if they're healthy enough to show up. Shenay's knee has apparently been giving her trouble all year.

After getting main draw wild cards into three of the past four Opens, Mattek might be a borderline case. Could depend on whether the USTA decided before or after she reached the semis in Cincinnati.

Alexandra Stevenson will get a main draw WC. Just wait and see.

it looks to me like Haynes will get in without a WC. If Perry and Rubin are injured, they will especially be looking for a black player to give that extra WC to, and it might be Stevenson, but it really ought to go to Ahsha Rolle.

Surprised nobody mentioned Sunitha Rao, she has a good chance to get one. Mattek should have to play qualies, the USTA already gave her three wildcards. One good tournie at Cincinnati doesnt justify a fourth.

haynes is still a few off the next in list..

I'd guess: haynes, gullickson, kirkland, mattek (or chanda if she plays), perry, ncaa, winner of glatch/gambale today, and def. Harkleroad.

Q: Stevenson, Loser of glatch/gambale, Uberoi, Vania King, Fansler, Avants plus....


If Stevenson gets a md wc, I think we should stage a die-in at her match

Zemenova will get the wildcard because that's the rule. I really doubt they would change it.

Zemenova will get the wildcard because that's the rule. I really doubt they would change it.

The rule actually changed a few years ago. Matias Boeker didn't get a wild card when he won the NCAA men's title in 2001. Here's an article with some USTA quotes about the policy change...

http://www.collegeandjuniortennis.com/MatiasBoeker01.htm

By the way, Boeker became an American citizen in time for the 2002 US Open and did get a wild card when he won his second NCAA title. :rolleyes:

Perry is not injured... She is playing in the Rogers Cup qualies...

It's weird though because Shenay was supposed to get knee surgery. I guess she put it off until the end of the year...

:shrug:

But I don't doubt that they'll give her a WC if she's a healthy. Her ranking has only tanked because she's been injured and she missed the whole first half of the year...:sad:

I agree with njguido11......

1. Ashley Harkelroad
2. Angela Haynes
3. Carly Gullicson
4. Jess Kirkland
5. Chanda Rubin
6. NCAA-Zemonova
7. Alexa Glatch
8. Mary Gambale-U 18

....other than Rubin for Mattek.
Although Haynes deserves it more, I think Alexandra Stevenson may take her WC too

After Mattek and Stevenson, the next ones to get one could be:

Rao
Perry
Tu
Tara Snyder- A real outsuide chace- probably a Qualy WC

I don't think Liliah O or Jen Hopkins have a chance for a MD WC.

Qualy WC-

Peterson

N Uberoi

Ditty

Rolle

Avants

Fonesca

Ospina

-Either Stevenson or Sndyer- whoever doesn't get MD

Does anyone know whether Chanda will be playing US Open?? She made good comeback in matches against L Granville and competitive match against D Hantuchova after a long layoff. Anyone who knows any news about her status, please post.

From: http://www.wtatour.com/newsroom/stories/NewsArticle_7814_rx.asp

WTA Tour site says they gave eight women qualifying wildcards, but then they list nine.

Stevenson was not given a WC :) Maybe she's using a SR or something.

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. :rolleyes:

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.

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.
