Hi,

9 MD wildcards and 6 Qualies WCs to give out, but who get them?

Its reported in danish news Papers and Websites Caroline Wozniacki get a Quali wildcard.

But is it likely Caroline will get wildcard into Miami, after her wildcards into Indian Wells and Memphis? as also reported in the papers...

Some info about who get the first wildcards, but it not official yet, as not writen on the Official website...

1) Croat123: Sanja Ancic(CRO) already has an MD WC.

2) gigiberi: Anna Tatishvili(GEO) gets WC for both tournaments, IW and Miami,

3) ruibarata: It's not official but will be soon.
The portuguese young star Michelle Larcher de Brito will get a WC for the MD.


Anybody have more info about who gets the Wildcards? :wavey:

(But ithink we may wait 1-2 weeks for Official news)


Michelle Larcher De Brito will have one, you can confirm it on an interview at CNBC Europe. See the videos here : http://www.tenisportugues.blogspot.com/

Will Nikola Hofmanova, who won the Orange Bowl last year, get a Quali WC?

If a player who has just won a tournament isn't even given a wildcard into the qualifying of Miami something will be very wrong. So if she needs and it looks like she might, I certainly hope they give Yari Shvedova a wildcard, at least into the qualifying. If she gets that I'm pretty confident she will find her way into the main draw too.

It's impossible to communicate with the organization to know which players are receiving WC's?




Paola Suárez / Mary Pierce / Gisela Dulko / Lindsay Davenport

Why the hell does Anna Tatishvili keep getting WCs? is she paying the officials? She loses to players who have to play qualifying.

Give one to Paola!

ZAK
Mar 9th, 2007, 10:48 PM
The reason why is her connection with Chris Evert's Academy

About Tatishvili.. She has a win over #40 Sania Mirza last year in Miami, Even Caroline doesn't have such a win Although I love her very Much.. her Biggest win is over #60..

IMG only give WC's to their players.

they 100% own this tourn.

I did wonder why her name was removed from the Entry Lists, so she won't play :sad: Did not get WC, the only way to play...

does this mean that Anna Tatishvili won't get WC also?

Jorn

Caroline said in her Blog she's going to Miami, playing or not...thats the big question.

Mar 11th, 2007, 07:25 PM
I love Anna T, but she really needs to start doing better on the ITF circuit before being awarded so many wildcards. :o

There's many more players who would use them better.

Mirza doesn't belong to Top100 when she's completely off nd some posters wrote tht she was.

yes, let's just list our faves... :tape:

Well i could have said Ivana Lisjak and Alize Cornet then, but i was only saying Kutuzova because she's still in Chris Everts acadamy and she helped get Anna Tatishvilli a WC last year. I was not serious btw :o it had little to do with the fact that Vika is one of my faves

Caroline said in her Blog she's going to Miami, playing or not...thats the big question.

Even MARTINA HINGIS mentioned the possibility of meeting Caroline in Miami and the articles in the danish news said she was playing Memphis, Las Vegas, Indian Wells and Miami before she left on her american tour. Caro mention Miami only in the english version on her blog, but I dont think she will goto Miami without playing, the question is WC maindraw or not. The reason why there is confusion, is that the danish TV2-news said she was going home after Indian Wells, but they could be wrong about that. If Caro says she is going, I believe that.

MARTINA HINGIS interview on pacificlifeopen website:

"Q. Martina, you played a 16-year-old girl from Denmark today. How do you think she did?

MARTINA HINGIS: Well, I think in the beginning she was a little bit nervous. We played each other once before in Seoul, also first round. Yeah, I think she's very talented. I mean, she can go a long way. She already improved from the last time I played her till now.
There's always, you know, little things you can adjust. I mean, I'll see her soon in Copenhagen again, so... Maybe also in Miami, but, you know, she's getting there. I mean there's -- yeah, there's definitely some potential."

Cibulkova deserves her wildcard A LOT MORE than Tatishvili :help:
Last year, Cibulkova won one 75K, reached the final of 50K twice and one time in a 25K.
I saw both player playing last year, and Cibulkova is better.

I agree that Wozniacki deserve a main draw WC, but the player that ''doesn't deserve'' her WCM is Tatishvili, not Cibulkova

Petkorazzi
Mar 15th, 2007, 03:04 PM
Well, at least Tatishvili deserved it more than Ancic.. They just give her because she's Mario's sister.. Doesnt Stevenson deserve a WC MD???

Like that Gold/Silver WC Kirilenko got in IW, but here all TOP players are entered so they can't give one for a late Entry...

Petkorazzi
Mar 16th, 2007, 05:43 PM
Babolatpro880, Sanja is 19 while Tatishvili 17, 2 years smaller.. Do you really think Anna won't enter top 150 in 2 years time????:rolleyes:

Petkorazzi
Mar 16th, 2007, 05:52 PM
Wish they give Chakhnashvili :( She would easily beat a qualifer and a few top 100.. But she's not on the list anymore.. that makes it impossible no?

Babolatpro880, Sanja is 19 while Tatishvili 17, 2 years smaller.. Do you really think Anna won't enter top 150 in 2 years time????:rolleyes:

For one thing, Ancic is still 18.

And, no, I don't. Wait until her Miami and Charleston points fall off. She'll be down to around #414. Last year, after those two tournaments, she lost to Namigata twice, Spears (ranked 421 at the time), I-Hsuan Hwang, Fonseca 62 62, Glatch, Osterloh and Dubois. She had zero challenger titles, and of all those losses, she won a whopping one set. Her best win in that stretch was over #215 Takao. Not exactly top 150 quality. So far this year, her best win is over Raquel Kops-Jones.

Ancic, on the other hand, won 25K Grado, 50K Rimini, and 50K Mestre, Johansson (#170), Gojnea, Angelique Widjaja, Martina Muller, and Sandra Kloesel in those events as well as two wins over Bychkova, a win over Tulyaganova, a win over Dushevina, and a third set tiebreak lost to Kostanic-Tosic.

if the question is who deserves a wildcard more, it is without a doubt Ancic.

You are so annoying:tape: They are better players than Georgians! If Chakhnashvili can beat qualifiers and top 100 easily, why she is not already in the top 100?

And stop to say that other players like Cibulkova or Ancic doesn't deserve WC, they deserve it a lot more than Tatishvili

ZAK

I believe Ancic got the WC for winning last year's juniors event. So its not really debatable.

Well, Larcher de Brito is 14, trains at IMG Academies (IMG gives out these wildcards basically), and she's ranked 59 in the world in juniors, so maybe you aren't remembering too well.
