Elena & Anne should both get wildcards for the maindraw, but if they weren't then they would probably be able to qualify anyway. ;) Julie has now slipped down the alternates list and will be lucky if she would get a maindraw wildcard. Lucie & Jane should get wildcards for the MD, and Julie, Hannah, Helen & Sarah for the qualy WC? Or maybe even Amanda?

Good Luck British Girls :D:D:D

Sarah and Amanda should both def get qual w/cs, since have both had some of their best results on grass in the past. They could both grab a win or two, sending them way up the rankings.

Main draw - Baltacha, Keothavong
Qualy - Borwell, Janes, other

Will Navratilova be after a singles w/c too - isn't she planning on playing singles at all grass events???

i've just booked my train tickets to birmingham, going on the tuesday, as hopefully the big names will be playing then!

If anyone else is going that day, it would be great to meet up. :)

Dava

I think unless Dokic and Ana M have a good RG they will get late entries here.

I have booked tickets for the final, and I think I will also go an the Tues, maybe the Wednseday, and hopefully the Saturday as well.

I forgot about Martina, well if she get's a wildcard i would expect the wildcards to go out as follows; (If they were given on merit ;) )

Maindraw:
1. Martina Navratilova
2. Elena Baltacha
3. Anne Keothavong
4. Jane O'Donoghue or Lucie Ahl

Qualifying:
1. Lucie Ahl or Jane O'Donoghue
2. Hannah Collin
3. Sarah Borwell :D
4. Amanda Janes :D

Nastya or Dokic will come in late i guess to take gold exempt WC

that means if martina also wants to play, only 1 WC to a GB player..... they should refuse martina.

paul_masterton
May 14th, 2003, 08:04 PM
yes. Especially as Brits tend to do okay here.

paul_masterton
May 14th, 2003, 08:07 PM
I hope wild cards to go to:

1)Dokic/Myskina/other exempt player
2)Elena Baltacha
3)Anne Keothavong

Qualifying

1)Lucie Ahl
2)Jane O'Donoghue
3)Helen Crook
4)Sarah Borwell

They wont refuse Martina, it would be commercial suicide.

Julie Pullin should be in the running to get a wildcard. She did good here last year.

Surely not all the MDO's
106 CRO 2 KOSTANIC, JELENA F 4 MDO
108 CZE 2 PRUSOVA, LIBUSE F 5 MDO
113 GER 2 MULLER, MARTINA F 8 MDO
118 CZE 2 ONDRASKOVA, ZUZANA A 11 MDO
119 SVK 2 SUCHA, MARTINA F 12 MDO
124 ITA 2 SANTANGELO, MARA A 16 MDO
128 SWE 2 ARVIDSSON, SOFIA A 19 MDO
130 CZE 2 VORACOVA, RENATA A 20 MDO
133 YUG 2 JANKOVIC, JELENA 22 MDO
will get into the maindraw, so they will pull out (?). Because of this Lucie Ahl may get into qualifying automatically without the help of a wildcard, so that would leave another qualifying wildcard available for a Brit.

So, does that mean that Martina's likely to play singles at BOTH Birmingham and Eastbourne this year?

Dava
May 16th, 2003, 06:26 PM
No I think people are just speaking speculativly

**news flash***

Kournikova might be coming

TheBoiledEgg
May 17th, 2003, 03:28 PM
Anna :eek:
no suprise, but she should have entered this anyway.

Pdm1987
May 17th, 2003, 03:42 PM
does that mean that she'll require a wildcard?

paul_masterton
May 17th, 2003, 05:13 PM
yes

Pdm1987
May 17th, 2003, 05:32 PM
well they should refuse her, dokic and myskina! :(

It's not fair that they should can enter whenever they like, they should enter at the same time as everyone else if they really want to participate. If they do give they wildcards to these players then there will be less for the Brits, this would be unfair to Lucie & Julie who both have points to defend from last years main draw. An also to Bally & Anne who could pick up valuable points on their best surface :fiery: Stuff Anna Kournikova and her gold exempt wildcard, and she doesn't even deserve that status!

paul_masterton
May 17th, 2003, 05:39 PM
well they dont think she will turn up - lol.

Martian Martin
May 17th, 2003, 06:50 PM
As Eggy says, she should have entered in the first place. It would be a good one for her to play.

I'm an Anna fan, but I think it's unfair to the Brits, because it's just lazyness from Anna's people that she wasn't entered into the tourney and wouldn't have required a WC.

paul_masterton
May 17th, 2003, 07:48 PM
Anna is a big girl, she should be entering these events herself. Maybe being a bit more independant might help her on court?

Colin B
May 17th, 2003, 11:45 PM
well they should refuse her, dokic and myskina!

Not much chance of that I'm afraid.
Love her or loath her, Kournikova puts arses on seats, attracts more media attention to the tournament, lends 'glamour' to the occasion and is thus every sponsor's wet dream.
Sadly (and I mean them no disrespect) that cannot be said for any of the current British players; even though, on her current form, a few of them could give her a straight sets thrashing.

Pdm1987
May 18th, 2003, 10:47 AM
Dokic, Myskina & Kournikova take up 3 wildcards which Brit would get the last?
Bally or Anne?

paul_masterton
May 18th, 2003, 02:14 PM
there are only 3 main darw wild cards.

4 for qualies.

TheBoiledEgg
May 18th, 2003, 03:01 PM
don't forget that all 3 are Gold Exempt and they can come in for other players who drop out.

so non of them might need a WC

Dava
May 18th, 2003, 08:11 PM
Yes I cant wait for the event now.

I really hope Anna forfils her commitment!!!

Johno_uk
May 25th, 2003, 05:23 PM
Oh i do hope Anna comes too! Bally, Anne or Lucie could destroy her and pick up some useful points.
