yeah when i thoughtd about it a bit more i realised i was wrong, i think they make a decisions based on how the player has performed in the year. did those guys have high enough ranking to be direct in the Q draw?
I don't think they did, but they had done enough to merit a MD WC. I completely understand why Fucsovics did not get one; he hasn't done anything whatsoever on Tour.
De Bakker also got a WC following his junior championship, by the way.
