View Full Version : If you had to give WC's for a Grand Slam, who would you give them to?

Every Grand Slam has 8 wild cards to give.
They give them to the best local players, promising juniors, injured players on their way back...

I would give my WC's to:

- Kirsten Flipkens #124 (best Belgian newcomer; only one who has a chance to win a GS match)
- Agnieszka Radwanska #128
- Yung-Jan Chan #150
- Magdalena Rybarikova #228
- Ayumi Morita #250
- Tamira Paszek #267
- Caroline Wozniacki #356
- Iroda Tulyaganova #381

It's very hard to choose only 8 players, there were also Molik, Cibulkova, Schultz-McCarthy, Dokic, Widjaja, Tatishvili...
As you can see I picked players who I think have a chance to get through one or two rounds, I didn't choose local unknown players.

Your turn now! :D

I would definitely give WC to Radwańska's sisters. They deserve them the most. Also the Wmbledon juniors finalists should get one: Rybarikova and Wozniacki - two perspective players. The remaining 4 I don't care.

Top 4 ranked juniors deserve a slam WC IMO:rolleyes:

-winner of the previous junior slam or winner of the very Slam the year before
-2 best ranked local players not in MD
-injured former top player , that would be Molik or Rubin right now
-best local junior

3 last ones wd go probably to local players or special WC like I would give one to Schultz Mc Carthy for instance

I would reserve 2 from well established players on the way back up the rankins from injury. (molik, Rubin, Dokic, etc.)

3 for promising Juniors, ( Not based on nationality, results should come into effect)

3 for special use. (Schultz-McCarthy, the NCAA champ is a good one & maybe something like the #1 ranked American Junior or something..

I like how Wimbledon established some new rules limiting certain players from getting WC after WC without doing anything with it... All slams should have some basic rules instead of saying "well you're American so here's a WC" or French or Aussie, etc...
