Does anyone know who has been given the qualifying and maindraw wildcards, and if they haven't been announced yet when will they?
I expect that Elena, Anne & Lucie for maindraw and Julie, Jane, Sarah & Amanda for qualies!

Thanks in Advance :)

It would not suprise me if they gave Sprem a WC, the way she has played this week.

why on earth would sprem get one?!

1)seh isnt British and isnt a crowd puller as no1 apart from us has heard of ehr
2)as far as we are aware, she cant play on grass
3)seh isn't playing surbiton and has pulled out of this eevnt to play vienna

There is abosultely no way she would even be considered for one!!

Wild cards are announced the Wednesday before the event. Thats when tournament organisers are told.

Oh sorry its just that shes on the commitment list, so I though maybe...

But I think she deserves one.

is there are 3 wildcards for the maindraw(assuming one goes to someone else)

i'd say Elena,Anne and Lucie will get them.

Quallies WC's would then go to Julie,Jane,Hannah and Helen if they were needed.
Nest ones to get them

Sarah Borwell
Amanda Janes
Karen Paterson
Emily Webley-Smith

in that order

srah wil get a qualies wildcard as the LTA were practically ejaculating with pleasure when she said she was coming over to the UK for the summer.

I wouldn't say she was brilliant on grass, its no where near her best surface, as she was whipped by Brandi at Surbiton, and then Webley-Smith then pushed Kristina really hard. She also lost to Jheni Osman in straight sets in the 1st round of Wimbledon pre-qualies last year. In fact, I don't think she has ever won a round of pre-qualies before.

I think being so successful in OZ was partially down to her being just way superior to most of the other girls there, which allowed her to beat them on a surface which few of them were that used to, even with an injury which meant she could only use a one-handed backhand insetad of two-handed.

I hope not. Jelena doesn't need to play another tournament. She needs to get things in order. I won't even mind if she's skipping Eastbourne.

well........Jelena IS the defending champ....:)
she has to enter more events.....
she jsut doesnt have enough matches
under her belt before Wimbledon,
if she cant defend those points....
she might drop out of TOP 16 by the time
US Open comes around......
AND it's not gonna be pretty......:p

I agree with Just-once. Jelena's not really playing enough matches this year. Her ranking will drop if she misses Birmingham and gets knocked out early in Eastbourne.
