You say something. Specially because Falla won who almost beaten Federer in last year, he should get one.

Never ever give up

Re: Wild Cards

Even if British tennis sucks, last year's decision to give Gabashvili a WC was ridiculous and should not be repeated with a WC for either Falla or Kubot (even if I like both).

Dunno who else would come into consideration. Danvenic an outside chance, I guess.
Tomic? What has he done to deserve a WC?

Re: Wild Cards

Falla has won hardly anything this year.
I know slams are important, but you can't reward someone with a WC because he had 1 good week out of a whole year.

How do they make their decisions anyway?
Do they only look at RG results?
Do they only consider recent results?
If we're talking about 4th round results in a slam, shouldn't Daniel Brands get a WC based on his reaching 4th round at Wimbledon 2010? At least that was on grass.

They look specifically at that year's Roland Garros, presumably because a) that player is in form so unlikely to have a poor showing a couple of weeks later and b) because that player will have grabbed people's attention, so they might be a popular choice. I really doubt they will care whether someone reached the fourth round at the US Open last year, for example.

They obviously do take previous editions of Wimbledon - and a player's pedigree on grass - into consideration, so in that light Brands is not without a shot, but I would be extremely shocked if he was awarded a WC. The organisers will pick Falla over him.

I would understand their decision if we were talking about a Milos Raonic who is young, talented etc. etc. But, this is a 27 yr old has-been (or should I say, never-was).

Why should Wimbledon get fired up about guys like these who are spending the better part of their career outside of the top 80?
Look at Gabashvilli. What will his ranking be after RG? Near 130, after losing in the 1st round.

Re: Wild Cards

but then by that tokren why should they even consider brands? he had one good run last year there but he has done literally nothing since, infact struggled to win matches and is well out of the top 100 now and, he will probably never get back in.

i agree with these picks mostly:

* Márton Fucsovics - because he is the defending junior champion so he's actually probably a lock
* Ryan Harrison - he's the best choice for an american to get one but he also might decline it since he prefers to play the qualies
* Bernard Tomic - unless another australian can do something on grass before wimbledon this is probably going to happen. Although even if bernard loses in the first round at nottingham and say carsten ball goes deep he'll still probably get it.
* Andrey Kuznetsov

I think evans could lock one up if he has a good run in Nottingham this week, he's close to 250 in the rankings now and if he could get himself inside the top 250 he'd pretty much be assured one i would think

james ward is inside the top 250 and based on that alone they'll probably give him one..aslong as he can keep himself there

Maybe winning Nottingham gives Gilles Muller a little chance to get one
