Re: Wild Cards

I seem to think they give out a third WC, do they not? If that is the case, I hope they give it to Verdasco. If not... ah well!

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

its their waste, they can do what they like, plus Spain don't have 10000 tourns
if tourns can give Chang a 1000000000000000000000 WC and he lost 1st rd in every one, Spainish directors can do same, still doesnt make it right.

Nahhh... no bagel Although I do hope Rafael wins that match, and will be a bit dissapoitned if he doesn't

Corretja might or might not be done after this year - this might be the last time he'll play in Madrid. In which case, yeah... give him a wild card. I imagine that people will want to see him.
