Wildcards

Who do you think will get them?

I think Harrison, Kusnetsov and Tomic have good chances of getting one. There'll be a random Pommy player too.

Out of last years wildcards, Gabashivili and Nishikori are already in the main draw, and Keifer retired.

Re: Wild Cards

Dan Evans should get one this season, he's had a pretty nice year. Daniel Cox I'm guessing will also get one, he's had a decent year. No other GB player should get one. Chris Eaton and Josh Milton haven't been bad this year, but they aren't great players. I don't know if GB has any young talents outside of Cox and Evans that would be deserving.

As for other WC's, I'm guessing Tomic, Harrison will get one. Kuznetsov I'd say is 50-50. A surprise run from a lower ranked player in RG may get them a Wimbledon WC. A guy like Bhambri who has had a good year in futures could get one. I wouldn't be surprised to see Clement (if he doesn't retire at RG) get one since he's had good Wimbledon's. Or, they could just eliminate WC's and go with highest ranking available.

Re: Wild Cards

Ward an outside chance for a Pom getting a WC too.

Yeah there's ALWAYS someone who gets a WC because they had a good run in RG, although I dunno who's good enough to get one.

Pretty sure Clement is retiring after RG, although I don't really know.

Re: Wild Cards

Don't they have a 250 rule for British players?
How does it work? Do they have to be ranked in the top 250 in order to get a WC or to be considered for one?

Re: Wild Cards

That's true, they do have a rule like that, I forgot. In that case I don't think GB has any player who qualifies, but Evans is near that mark, and they'll probably waive the rule to allow him a WC.

Re: Wild Cards

Maybe Conor Niland? With so few British players with chances to get a WC, maybe they'll give one WC to a Irish player, who is in the Top 200.

Re: Wild Cards

Conor has had a horrible season, though. He also lacks grass pedigree. So I don't think he would get one even though it's a good idea.

Re: Wild Cards

Pretty sure James Ward is in the top 250.

Re: Wild Cards

He is, but he doesn't deserve a WC and I think he'll get passed over.

Re: Wild Cards

Eastbourne 2010
Ward - Quarterfinals.
How can you not give him WC?
He has better quality points than the others.

Re: Wild Cards

james ward and daniel evans will probably get the wiuld cards..they are the only 2 british players that i think would be looked at

james is inside that 250 liuke they want..ofcourse he also has points to defend and he could fall out of that area before wimbledon so we'll see

evans is close to that 250 and has time to get himself within that ranking area before wimbledon and if he can i think he'll get one

as for the others?...
kuznetsov might get one, being a recent junior champion and almost beating hanescu last year plus he's starting to play well again

others..harrison maybe?

tomic will probably get one too

Re: Wild Cards

Bloomfield has barely played in the last few months, however considering he reached a semi final on an ATP tournament played on grass last season, he may still get a WC. Yes, it was in Newport, but he defeated a Top 100 player at least there!

Another candidate is Daniel Brands, considering he reached 4th round last year.
