Re: Wild Cards

Domijan retired up 7-6, 5-5 in the final of the Godfrey Futures. Bummer. It could have been his first title. Now we'll have to see if he's able to play Washington and/or Kalamazoo.

Re: Wild Cards

I used to play at the same club as Wesley Barrett who is in the 18's and we played last year in high school tennis (he beat me 6-4 6-2). Kinda cool

Re: Wild Cards

Is it impossible for a non-American (and apart from the players who come from countries with another slam) to get a WC here ?

As Baghdatis is not in the direct entry-list.

Moreover some say that he has asked a WC for New Haven, which would mean he could not take part in the USO qualies.

I know Britton and Harrison are greatly promising players (in many years ), but yet, does Marcos have any chance ?

Kim Clijsters was awarded a wild card several months ago.

Re: Wild Cards

Patrick McEnroe (in Washington):

Marcos Baghdatis: no chance
Ryan Harrison: qualifying wild card
Blake Strode: consideration for qualifying wild card
remaining wild cards: most are decided, only significant results in the next few weeks would change his mind

Darren Cahill (in Washington):

TA wild card will likely go to Carsten Ball; only other player under consideration by TA is Chris Guccione

Is that McEnroe's opinions or what has been decided on?

Re: Wild Cards

Why should Fatdatis get a WC? He's never done anything decent at the USO. He's a clown, as well.

Re: Wild Cards

So no Main Draw WC for Harrison

Wrong decision imo, you should always give real youth priority over a guy like Sweeting or Kuznetsov.

Sweeting deserves it 1000 times more at this point, have you ever watched or followed him at all?

QWC for Ryan seems like a very logical and solid choice at this point. The only really young American that I think could get one is Britton. He is an American that won the NCAA title (this used to make it an automatic), had solid scorelines against good players, and is also strong physically at this point. Sweeting for sure will get one, he still has puzzling losses and can be terrible mentally at times, but he's definitely got substantial talent. I don't feel like pondering who will get the rest right now
The only thing I wonder about is if Ryan thought he had a MD WC for sure, and because of this skipped Kalamazoo.
