Re: Roland Garros Wild cards announced
What I don't understand - these obscure juniors Selena Janicijevic and Elsa Jacquemot - they have not even given them WCs into main draw or qualifying into any of the other recent senior events for them to gain experience - Cagnes-sur-Mer, St Gaudens or Strasbourg. In fact Strasbourg has some even more obscure offerings in the qualifying - Evita Ramirez v Emiline Dartron, who TF are they??? Surely it is better that these girls have a bit more senior experience before walking out on court at Stade Roland Garros or are the FFT afraid that they would receive a double bagel drubbing like Julie Gervais at the hands of Beatriz Haddad Maia the other week? It is like the reverse of a play off - hiding your players away so no one can see how bad they really are!!!
Given the recent performances of the other WCs, this does not bode well. Paquet was the only MDWC to have a reasonable performance at St Gaudens, reaching the qf unseeded. But Ponchet was double baguetted by Tereza Martincova (!), Tan lost to QWC Tessah, who then achieved one game from Bogdan 2r, Albie and Yerolymos lost to a qualifier and a lucky loser in straight sets respectively! Collectively I think we call call that performance St Garbage!
