Didn't Dokic say she was taking a break?

Or is it after Miami?

jelena isn't gonna turn down a big 1st round paycheck even if she needs a break.

does anyone else think money is a big motivator with jelena and her box?

Slap in the face for Boserup.

Nice to see Nastya P getting a wild card, but I don't know how deserved it is especially given her form just returning from injury.

Jelena Dokic - I guess she deserves one more chance :yeah:
Coco - Up coming young player, deserves a WC :woohoo:

Sania Mirza- Waste of a wild card.Angela should have been given a WC instead of Mirza.

Some very nice choices! :bounce:

Before people start complaining about CoCo getting an MD WC, she is repped by IMG which owns and manages the tourney. She was bound to get one no matter what :p. I would have prefered her to play in the Qs, but hey....maybe she'll come through this time around. She has come very close in wta tourneys on numerous occasions :lol::p...

Good Luck to CoCo and the rest of the WCs...:bounce:...:wavey:

Awesome WC's. But no orange bowl winner?!
Jelena... Please try. You haven't played that much... :rolleyes:

And yes, she's playing. No way she's turning down thousands of dollars to show up.

Jelena just stated she's exhausted and needs a break.
A big waste.

So basically most of the same from IW. I'm happy that Sania, Alexa and Melanie got one, not sure about the rest though (haven't seen Pivavorova or Hendler play). Also, when does Dokic reach her WC limit? I thought she was only emtitled to 4 and this is her 5th of the year - or does this rule just apply to teens?

this means it's almost certain Ula will skip Miami, as her father suggested.

Mar 17th, 2009, 12:10 AM
Dokic, Mirza, Vandeweghe, Oudin, Glatch, Pivovarova :woohoo:

Hendler and Rus :unsure:

King, Boserup, Haynes, Urszula Radwanska, and Larcher de Brito deserved it more, especially Boserup

I think wildcards for slams and for challengers (itf sanctioned) dont count towards her tally of WC. only WTA tourns

I wish they would give them to more americans
if they were at other tournaments outside the U.S. the Wcs would be going to the home countrys players

Jelena will do well at this tournament, she´ll have more than a week of break, so she´ll rest a little!!!

America hosts 10 events a year, 3 of which are mandatory - I think it's only fair to give some international WC's

Ugh no WC for Ula? What is this? :( I don't think she'll get in based off of her ranking even if they use the ones after IW (I don't think they will use those anyways). But this is sad to see hopefully she doesn't skip it like the buzz has been going around. She made 4r at least at Indian wells and will improve her ranking about 20 spots! She needs to play this tournament!

Jelena got one :eek:

I thought she could get as many WCs as she wanted as long as the tournies want to give her them?

IMG run this event and they give WC's to mostly their players.
