Re: U.S. Open USTA WC Playoff-Boca Raton,FL

To be fair, Maddy is only 20 this year. Just like Riske, Falconi and Hampton. And only a year younger than Boserup.

It would have been better if USTA were to give a chance to non 18s like Brodsky, Muhammed, Cohen, Couts, Glatch or Cecil instead of giving another chance to those who have competed at the Nat U18.

Re: U.S. Open USTA WC Playoff-Boca Raton,FL

Everyone int he WC thread was thinking that Riske was a guaranteed WC. Maybe this playoff is the test to see who gets that "WC"

Are you related to Glatch?

Glatch was given PLENTY of WCs in the past few years as compared to Maddy who had to work her way up or fight for her own WC through the playoff.

if Madison wins this playoff all she needs to do is win a wimbledon playoff and she will have the grand slam

Riske out? Maybe she got a MDWC and decided not to do it?

Re: U.S. Open USTA WC Playoff-Boca Raton,FL

This must be some joke that one of the girls who deserves a WC won't get one because one of these bitches will. USTA = FAIL.

And I swear if you're gonna do a draw, USTA, make a little more effort than the generic 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, etc. Lazy bastards.
