The US Australian Open Wildcards have been annouced and go to

Madison Brengle for the WOMEN.... and Sam Querrey for the MEN.

So now we know most of the wildcards!

1. Alicia Molik
2. Casey Dellacqua
3. Madison Brengle
4. Asian Games? Asian Champs! Iroda Tulyaganova
5. ?
6. ?
7. ?
8. ?

ALSO, does anyone know who gets the Asian Games WC? Zheng won right, but she does't need the Wildcard, right??

Tulyaganova won that.
The French haven't announced there Wildcard.
Last 3 will go to Aussies.

Who the hell is Madison Brengle? Does she have any promise? And is this agreement going to continue for years to come, or is it a one off, Alicia gets into the US Open so we give them a wildcard for the next Australian Open kinda thing. Or will an Aussie get a wildcard into 2007 US Open and an American get a wildcard into 2008 Australian Open and so forth.

I think they should keep on exchanging WCs. We know it happens a lot anyways, Stephanie managed to get one in the Qualies of the Zurich Open last year after Canada faced Switzerland in Fed Cup. If it helps the players, why not.

umm I don't have the draw, but it was round-robin format, and it featured pretty much all of the young Americans. The results weren't ever official but it was cited that Brengle didn't drop a set the entire tournament and came back from 1-5 down in the first set against Kirkland in the final.

Pavlyuchenkova won Juniors AO last year with some of the girls above in the draw (Albanese, Gullickson, Weinhold and Brengle). Only Gullikson could win 2 matches in the juniors main draw last year, Albanese won 1 match.

To win her title, Pavlyuchenkova had to beat

The draw also had players like Pazsek, Bacsinszky, Cirstea, Morita, Tatishvili, other, who have already made some noise on the pro-tour or ranked high in juniors.

Pavlyuchenkova is ranked #1 in juniors --------- Brengle's best is #26
Pav beat Brengle when they met this year (3 and 5)
Pav won 1 $10k in 11 tries ---------------- Brengle won 1 $10k in 18 tries

So, I'm not saying that Pavlyuchenkova deserves a MD WC, but does Brengle really deserves it?

i would agree there. she deserves in the sense that she had to win the playoff to get it. but on the other hand i can't see her winning more than 2 games, no matter who she draws in the first round. someone like pavlyuchenkova would do a fair sight better.

It was a US WC playoff anyway, so yes she does.

Though really Albanese probably has the best future of the American girls and actually leads Brengle 3-0 in H2H which is why I'm surprised Madison beat her, with their last meeting being at this year's US Open 6-4 6-1 to Lauren.

We'll have to see how Madison does, but I still think Lauren could have done more with it.

Madison won fair and square though.

Nastya probably would do a little bit better, but I doubt she'd win a match either.

I'm a huge fan of Nastya, but she has struggled a bit in ITF's.

She is not quite ready for the pros yet.

I think the US and Australia do a WC tradeoff for their slams, so Pavlyuchenkova shouldn't have gotten this MD WC because she's not American.

I see your point, but it just happens to be the circumstances.

AO JR Champ gets a QWC.

AO/USA tradeoff gets a MD WC.

I'm glad we agreed. I'm glad Nastya will play quali. She'll get a few matches under her belt and be prepared for MD better. It would really benefir Madison as well if she played quali instead going to a main draw directly.

Australian Tennis Federation should probably put some kind of conditions around the wc.

Brengle's just lucky that she's from a country with a GS that can do a swap with AO. Anyway, Nastya should most certainly have the better career, and she might even win some matches in quallies...I don't think Brengle's gonna win a round in the MD. ;)

Wild card trading is such a benefit to the players who come from those countries, however it always makes me more impressed by those who come through in less tennis rich countries. (The three Serbs for example)

Jelena had a crapload of American WCs on the way up.

Why? Other tourneys could do it too if they wanted to... :shrug:

yeah but 95% of people here would like to see her playing Ao and 5% of them would like to see that girl ! I mean tennis is commericial sport !?

I'd like to see neither so... :shrug:

and I highly doubt that 95% of people want to see Jelena at the AO (or do you meant compared to Madison?)

:lol: Wimby stuffed up bigtime by not asking for an agreement with TA when they gave Alicia the WC this year. ;)

They were probably relieved to give a WC to someone who had the potential to win a match :)

I guess the WC swap is a good thing, it usually eliminates @ least two spots for the host nation that would likely go to players who won't do anything with it. (B/c no country has 8 really excellent up and coming players all at one time ;) )
