Frenchwomen Amandine Dulon, Tatiana Golovin, Anais Laurendon, Virginie Pichet and Camille Pin have also been handed places in the draw.

Australian Christina Wheeler, courtesy of an agreement between the French and Australian federations, was also awarded a wild card.

Three wild cards are still to be granted for the men's singles and two for the women's.

They had better give Elena B the last one please, or we should just ban the French from Wimbledon!!!

I want Eggy to come in here and verify this...but Golovin should not be allowed to get a WC.

c. (i) Between the date of a player’s fifteenth (15th) birthday and the day before her
sixteenth (16th) birthday a player may participate in a maximum of eight (8) professional
Tournaments plus the Championships (if she qualifies), Fed Cup, and three (3)
exhibition/non-Tour events.

(iii) These players are permitted to receive a total of three (3) Wild Cards as follows: two
(2) Wild Cards into the Main Draw or Qualifying Draws of any Sanex WTA Tour Tier I-V
Tournament or ITF Women’s Circuit event, and one (1) Wild Card into the Main Draw or
Qualifying Draw of any Sanex WTA Tour Tier III-V or ITF Women’s Circuit Tournaments.

Tatiana has already had her two WC's into maindraws...Indian Wells and Miami...

Maybe they changed the rules...

Is Arnaud di Pasquale a direct entry or does he need a wild card? :confused: Hope to see him at RG, he has a lot of points to defend and I like him. :worship:

Surprised to see Wheeler got the aussie wildcard over Stosur, I know Wheeler beat Anna here last year, but fully expected it to go to Stosur, who tennis australia are clearly pushing and giving all the opportunities to. So it is good to see Wheeler get another chance, and an opportunity to defend her points :)

Nice choice

No - it says she can have THREE WC's - she had two already, so the FO would be her third right?

Sam will undoubtedly get the Wimbledon WC, and therefore cannot receive the FO one as well. There was really no-one else worthy aside from Christina (and also Rachel McQuillan but she's obviously nearing the end of her career and they've always gone with youth)

I'm happy with this choice too :) Incidentally, the FO wildcard was reserved for Evie this year, but as she made it in on her own, Christina was the next choice.
