Ok this so pisses me of.

Elke Clijsters, ranked below 500 receives a maindraw wildcard without a doubt, but Belgium's third best player is unsure to get one :mad:

There are 3 wildcards, and now they're saying they don't know yet who to give to?

It would once again proove how many support Els gets from the Belgian Tennis Federations.... It has always been this way and it will always stay this way. :mad:

I'm pretty sure Elke & Els will get the 2 WCs, Bram!

I wouldn't bet on it Bram..if for instance Anna K wants to play, Anna K will get the WC

Ok, I think the reason why Els ins't 100% sure about the wildcard is because she's is the next "next-in" for the maindraw. And when one player will withdraw, she can enter the maindraw without a wildcard. Maja Matevzic is in doubt, cuz she still has a leg injury and her website tells she will skip some tournaments!....

Maja will withdraw from Antwerp probably

There are 3 WCs right?
1 for Els, 1 for Elke and 1 for a top-30 player who still wants to enter the main draw.

I think they should give one to Els, one to Kirsten, and let Elke play quali's.

Why did she get a WC again?? She got one last year..and Kirsten is the better singles player :(

The thing is tho, while Elke is most likely to lose in the 1st round of the main draw and win just 1 point, Kirsten will face a less good player so she could win QR2 points + bonus points, if she beats that player :)

I read on the news paper that if Els and Elke get a WC!

If one more player withdraw, Els won't need that WC and so they'll give that WC to Kirsten!

That's what was written!

This always happens in Germany as well. The wildcards always go to players like Conchita Martinez or Iva Majoli. Don't ask me why. They ignore the German players ...

Well looks like she won't be needing it! Deserved a place in the maindraw on own power :D (and due to dome withdrawals)
