As the rankings stand, Bogdanovic, at No 161, is the only British male who could be recommended to Wimbledon for a wild card. Jamie Baker, the Scot who has done wonders to haul himself up the rankings two years after being struck down by a near-fatal blood disease, heads for the United States this week to try to get the points that will lift him the 13 places required to move inside the Wimbledon cut-off of 250.

Re: Wild Cards

So if none of the British players won't reach the cut at 250, who will get the WC's?

Re: Qualifying Entry List (updated May 25, 2010)

why is it that andrey kuznetwov is only on the qualifying list as an alternate for wimbledon? i though that since he won junior wimbledon last year he got a spot automatically in the qualifying or main draw as a wild card

Re: Wimbledon 2010 Wild-Cards.

Boggo getting a wildcard is a tradition they can't break.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Wimbledon 2010 Wild-Cards.

Evans does not deserve a WC. His results have not shown a level equipped to play a GS.

Boggo could get one, or they may opt to go with a bigger name in qualifying. Boggo is pretty old now and has NOT had a season that truly jumps out as deserving for a WC. Just because he's British doesn't automatically mean he deserves a spot in the draw. Beating Dimitrov and then Feli this week will go a long way.

They may opt for a younger guy whose less proven and been on the scene a little less than Evans has. I don't really know their situation to much so someone else can describe the UK situation and maybe a junior or young guy who could get one.

Honestly, if I were them, I would give the WCs to someone like Mahut, then Berankis/Harrison/Tomic/Paire etc. Go a veteran and 2 young guys, or 3 young guys, or 2 veterans and another youngsters. They may as well just go best talent and excitement available if they don't have any options from their own country.

Honestly i like the idea of giving berankis a wild card, i think he definately deserves one. I would like to see grigor dimitrov get a wild card but thats just the fan boy in me and i know he wont.

Re: Wimbledon 2010 Wild-Cards.

Would love to see Krajinovic get a WC, unlike the other youngsters he hasn't even been in a GS yet

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling
