Good choice to a former Wimbledon champion (in doubles). Very similar to Stosur I reckon.

Good choice. :yeah: Jie Zheng is a Wimbledon champion (in doubles) and a player who but for injuries would've been well inside top100.

^bibi^
Jun 15th, 2008, 05:45 PM
they already gave one to a former double winner when they gave one to Black, so I guess that makes sense... It's a bit sad for Dokic though...

I'm sorry but Huber was also a doubles champion in Wimbledon, and that doesn't mean she WILL do well in singles. But seriously, they should give it to RIsing US players like Amber Liu and Madison Brengle.

I believe that Jie went further at the FO then anyone else not already in MD, that could easily have been a deciding factor also.

Amber would be so mortified if she knew she had a fan like you. Madi is the Queen of WC Playoffs at Oz and RG, but hasn't really used them too well.

Zheng has made the 4R of a slam before also.

Well done Wimbledon. Fully deserved.. i'm sorry to Dokic fans, but if she really wants to come back this time.. she should do it the hard way, she has had to many wildcards in her last few attempts at a comeback.

but do all the players who get wc play into 3rd???
many of them even lose in the 1st round

just like the French Open this year
only 3 players:Mathilde Johansson,Samantha Stosur,Olivia Sanchez winned the 1st round,and they all lost in the 2nd round!!

As "weak" as Jie is, she is probably somewhat stronger than Amber Liu and Madison Brengle :rolleyes:

She proved at Roland Garros that she shouldn't have to go through qualifying again. She made the third round and almost took a set off of Safina.

Huber is hardly a singles player! And there is no way in heck Amber or Madison would get further than Zheng could. Geez.

Wimbledon is rewarding players who had good runs at RG (Suarez Navarro, Chardy etc.), so I think this is a fair choice. Very happy for Jie.

Yes, those players did have success at Roland Garros, but I don't believe those are the main reasons why they chose them.

Zheng - Wimbledon Women's Doubles Champion in 2006 and former Top 30 player coming back from injury
Suarez Navarro - Top 50 player who missed the cut-off for the main draw; how dumb would it be to have a Top 50 player play qualifying?
Chardy - Wimbledon Boy's Champion in 2005

Oh I totally agree. Liezel Huber should have got a singles wildcard for sure, based on her strong singles career.

Amber has yet to lose a match on grass because she hasn't played one. <img><img>

And Madison won a total of 1 game against Kops-Jones on grass last year, so she should have been chosen over Jie Zheng for sure...

Umm you guys are stupid or something?? It's young players that should be given a WILDCARD. Get it Together!!! It gives them something called "OPPORTUNITY".

Why am I on that list?? I acknowledged that Zheng deserved it more based on results, but merely suggested that Dokic's hot body should have been taken into consideration---as it certainly should have been. Actually, I love both of them, so I think they should have both gotten wildcards. I mean, seriously, couldn't they have dropped one of those fat English chicks instead?
