So, to my surprise, ladies' qualifying still starts on Tuesday and I imagine the draw will come out late afternoon tomorrow.

This classification makes no sense . How can they be considered wildcards when someone below them on the next-in list is not? Either call them all wildcards or not Watson and Swiatek .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies: Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Wimbledon removed Watson/Swiatek from the entry list after giving them the WC.

well, they're officially not wildcards anymore; only Swan, Dart and Niculescu are the wildcards this year.


PS why was Kristyna Pliskova moved into the main draw after Andreescu's withdrawal? Shouldn't Lauren Davis be as she is the next MD alt?

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Could they not have actually given us a fun wild card this year?

Re: Wimbledon wildcard chat

Hey, why not have stuffy member at the All England Club just draw some arbitrary names out of a hat and those people get the wildcards. Now that would make sense for the British, as the way they favor their players is outrageous and unfair. Am I the only one that feels this way?
