A new burgerking has opened in Zlin, so she was in a hurry.

Why should she get a WC for Wimbledon? Don´t think that she will get one... The tournament of Zlin is played on red clay. Playing on grass now would be strange.

I think it's been suggested that the wild card will likely go to one of the comeback girls. They've actually been able to demonstrate potential, while the other girls ranked too low for qualifying don't have much to distinctively set them apart.

So that leaves competitors like, Dokic, Lucic, and Groenefeld. If she wins this there's not much difference in form between Dokic and ALG. Of course, Dokic has had the Wimbledon SF which will greatly help her cause, but ALG is good on the surface too.

She is not that good on grass than on other surfaces. On grass she has a balance of 3-8. Anna-Lena fall in Wimbledon 1st round every time.

I don't think she's ever been in form during the grass court season though. She reached the quarters at Eastbourne once and I think she's done well in doubles on grass.

You cannot compare doubles to singles. It´s totally different. In doubles she had reached SF with M. Navratilova at Wimbledon. Anna-Lena has 1 singles title but 6 at doubles.

I know it's different due to court positioning and all, but can you really say that surface means nothing in regards to doubles? We see clay court specialists staying back in the court and doing quite well at RG all the time.

In my opinion it´s to early for ALG playing on grass. Zlin is on red clay as I have said, and it makes no sense that she plays grass now during her run.

I understand, sorry! She probably won't get the wildcard anyway.

I hope ALG sticks to the European clay for a while and plays the "after Wimbledon" tournaments during the Olympic season.

It might be wise to give the US Open a try, but I doubt that she is ready for the bigger events just yest.

She can enter the European this fall.

She should care for direct entry into the Australian Open qualifying.
