Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

I say give wild cards to the semi-youngsters and youngsters. Sorry, but the only older players that would deserve a wild card would be Craybas, Spears, and Granville. Possibly Ditty or Stevenson too, but in my opinion that's questionable.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

I have heard King and Glatch so far. Makes sense given their rankings and that they are both Californians.

Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

Good, Glatch seems to get snubbed when it comes to wild cards I'm glad she got one.
Vania deserves one too. It seems she's getting her act together.
Where did you guys get this info from?
Any news about QWCs?

Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

Yes!!! I knew Mel would get one! I hope she gets a kind first round so she can at least defend her points. Then as long as she doesn't have to play a seed in R2 that would be fantastic too.
If you think about it, those three are the only ones who really deserve a MD WC. I agree with the other 5, except Tomljanovic. I would have given that one to maybe Albanese, Brengle, Ditty, or Gullickson.

Yeah, i agree with all of the WCs with the exception of Tomljanovic. Pretty solid job from the USTA

Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

Yeah, people usually complain that they only give to Americans (which is true a lot of times...) but this time they were really fair. Almost all the non-Americans they gave WCs to are talented players who are rebuilding their careers and definitely deserve a chance on this stage.

Anyone know anything about the qualifying wild cards? I'm hoping Christina McHale, Madison Brengle, Coco, and Lauren Albanese all get one.

Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

I don't know yet, but I've give to Coco, McHale, Brengle, Albanese, Osterloh, Perry, or Embree. Maybe Prousis or Jackson too?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Indian Wells, Miami, Ponte Vedra Beach, Charleston WC discussion thread

Not Embree. She failed to win two first round matches of a 25k. Jackson is still MIA as far as I know. Coco, McHale, Albanese, and Perry I would definitely say yes to.
