Main Draw wildcards are Cibulkova, Hantuchova, and Madison Keys. Still one more MD WC?

Also, Bartoli is QWC.

I'm not happy about WCs being taken by players who are high enough ranked to get it on there own merit. I think if a player is on a gold/silver exempt list then a WC should not be used on them. Aren't Domi and Marion on this list ?? If not, then a "Late Entry" or an "SE" should be implimented in these cases. These WCs should be used for young upcoming players, locally born/raised/college etc players who missed the md cut or recently injured players whos rankings have dropped...IMO . I'm glad that Cibilkova is playing as i am a fan of hers, but she should not be able to use up a WC .

Keys
Isn't she 14?
I think that's too young, but hopefully she can prove me wrong

If you are 18, you can take up to 6 wildcards with a maximum of 3 main draw.

If you are under 18, there are more restrictions but I don't know what they are.

So, Melanie definitely has used all of her main draw wildcards and may have 2 or 3 qualy wcs left for 2009.

She can still get some qualifying wild cards though, right? I wouldn't be surprised if she got one at Ponte Vedra or Charleston.

I believe that Melanie has maxed out on Wildcards, hasn't she? She got one in Memphis, IW, and Miami.

For Charleston, there will be 4 WC's. Serena, Venus, Mattek-Sands, Craybas, King, Lepchenko, and Ditty are in the MD. I wold give one to Osterloh, one to Glatch, one to Granville, and one to Albanese. I think that these are pretty smart choices.
i think oudin will probably get one also

Good to see Bethanie playing PVB. Hopefully some younger girls play qualifying.
^ I like all of those wild card choices for Charleston!
