Australian Open Wild Card Playoff
Thought it's about time we have a thread for this, since it's only a couple weeks away. So far 6/8 competitors have been announced:
1. Coco Vandeweghe 117
2. Jamie Hampton 133
3. Irina Falconi 187
4. Beatrice Capra 221
5. Shelby Rogers 336 (Reigning USTA 18s Champion)
6. Krista Hardebeck 396
7. Lauren Davis 446 (Highest ITF junior ranking of American girls)
8. Madison Keys 485
1. Christina McHale 109 Reason: Made the AO Main draw
2. Alison Riske 116 Reason: Unknown, most likely wanted to try and get some "easy" points by trying to qualify on her own, since she'll be a top seed.
Other things to consider:
Christina McHale will most likely get into the main draw on her own ranking, so there will potentially be 3 spots still open. If I got to choose, I would say they should go to Sloane Stephens, Lauren Davis, and Madison Keys.
