Bartoli is a good young player. But Kuznetsova, the #1 ranked junior and junior world champion, should have received the wildcard. Right? Svetlana should have been rewarded for her achievements. And she wasn't.

Coz French Association has an agreement with Tennis Australia.

Australian get a WC into French and vice versa.

What a bunch of BS! How about giving it to the most deserving player? Which in this case is Svetlana Kuznetsova.
