No surprises in the WC choices. Playoff winner will get one too, so there are 2 left to be decided.

is Baltacha's ranking high enough to not need a wc now?

Good to see Wimbledon slowly but surely getting away from handing out predictable British wildcards and giving it to the British players who have really tried to improve and spent the last year travelling the world to gain points rather than rely on wild card handouts. And Molik's a great choice too.

Great news I now have a reason to stay up all night if Lindsay withdraws and if she doesn't its double the pleasure. I thought Alicia would have to qualify.

So far the right choices for WC's hoping that Amanda Janes or Naomi Cavaday can come through the play-offs.

I'm really glad Alicia got one. :D

What about the 2 remaining ones though? How are they gonna decide who gets those? Sigh, I really hope Jelena requests one. I doubt she will though. :rolleyes:

Anyone know if there is a draw or something for the play offs?

Alicia deserves a wildcard. Her run to the third round at Roland Garros was inspiration. If her serve is working, who knows how far she can go at this slam.

Well deserved for Alicia. She'll definitely be a dangerous floater

The draw will be made later today before play starts. Hopefully we'll find out the draw soon after but who knows...:shrug:

There will be 20 direct entrants, 4 WC and the top 8 all get byes. That's how it was last year at least.
