I'd love to see Jelena Dokic get it but I think it'll go to Larcher De Brito or Brengle.

What does everyone else think?

:lol:

Michelle already received 3 WC's this year to events that are higher than the 75k ones...So she can't receive anymore...

I think it will just go to the 1st alternate. It's been saved for a brit, if they were playing somewhere else, I think. If that's not the case then alt 1 will get it I think. Stupid Wimbledon!

Maybe i'm wrong but I just can't see that happening. They'll either give it to someone who has had good results at Wimbledon e.g. Dokic, Stevenson or Lucic or a young player with potential e.g. Brengle.

So Olivia Sanchez could receive this last WC ??

It will be great.

I just think that if one of these players were to get it, it would have been announced already with the last 2 announcements...

Yeah you're probably right but i'm still clinging on to a little bit of hope that Dokic might get it :).

My guess is that they were going to give it to Mattek but she got in through withdrawals.

One player that no-one has mentioned is Severine Bremond, who reached the quarter-final in 2006, though her form has not been good.

I think you could be on to something about Bremond, I totally forgot about her reaching the QF 2 years ago.

Probably go to either Dokic, Date or possibly Black. The AELTC have always had a thing for her :shrug:

I believe the Black family is well-known in the tennis circles. Plus, I believe she's accomplished a lot on grass in the past.

i've said this in all the threads, but i think laura robson should get it, but it won't happen. it wont go to another brit girl as all the QWC are brit girls.

i saw someone mention ALG, interesting as i completely forgot about her! i think it is possible

but they are more likey to waste it on cara black again :ras:

the two times they have given her a wildcard she's either made the third round or given a top ten player a tough match so i don't think they've "wasted" any wild cards on her.
