The U18 wildcard is a load of bunk and should be cancelled... the winner of this always goes on to lose something like 6-0 6-1 in the maindraw of the US Open.

I think the U18 winner getting a wildcard is a great idea! It provides them with the most valuable experience, actualy playing a grand slam. They will learn things that only playing a grand slam can teach you!

.

Very true...I think the tradition should be continued based on that...but at the same time, this U18 winners have won a combined 20 games in the last five years...not very impressive.

Given the way they've been playing this year, at least one of the Uberoi sisters deserves a wildcard...

I don't know that they will give wildcards to Hopkins or Osterloh since they seem to be playing well enough to qualify.

Id say Gullickson eliminated herself from wc consideration. I would give Sarah Fansler that WC . I think alot of the girls from nationals could take away some of these wcs from players like lepchenko and peterson. My prediction could have alot of very young us qualies wcs Fansler, Reymnse, Marcio, Glatch, Mueller. Question is if say Glatch wins u18 will they give a MD Wc to kirkland still?? People might say that takes away the importance of nationals. ANyone know if theyve given out MD WC to other girls besides the winners at nationals
