This is pretty awesome! How well do you think she will do? :confused:

I guess the draw will enlighten us.

I hope she gets a nice draw. It would be awesome if she won a couple rds :cool::bounce:. I just hope that she's fully fit. Its a shame that she wasn't able to play in any warm ups due to her injury. :)

I have never been a fan of oldies getting WCs when some younger players need chances.

^Well almost all wildcards are the young players and they tend to bomb out in first round all the time and STILL get WCs next year.

Don't forget just last year, Zhend Jie made good use of her WC and made the SF.

What gives younger players more of a right to wildcards than older players? Older players deserve chances too.

Good.... haven't been following her chances here so don't know if this was expected or not.

BTW "Krumm" is not in parentheses, it follows Date now in her surname.

I'm very excited for Wimbledon this year, especially after a very exciting RG and now these interesting WC choices. I just wish Kerkhove had recieved at least a QWC. It would have been very intriguing.
