Re: Wild Cards

probably schüttler's farewell tournament....

ROGER FEDERER


RAFAism

Predicitons on Federer possibly defeating Nadal in the AO Final
Code:
ZERO chance of it happening.
In 2014 RAFA was severely injured and still straight setted him.
RAFA is destined to win DCGS and this match on Sunday.
I fully believe it'll be a beatdown similar to 6-1 6-3 6-0 like that RG '08 final.

I would really hope so. Reigning US Open junior champion, plus he has won some Futures in Britain this year. But his 2R loss at Wimbledon juniors last year won't help his chances.

Liam Broady was in the Wimbledon Boys' final last year, so he might be on the radar too.

But we all know the AELTC is rather illogical in its WC choices, preferring not to allocate them and to let unknown and unpopular players into the draw than giving young Brits a chance.

Re: Wild Cards

I think Golding and Broady should get qualifying wild cards. Luke Saville will get a qualifying wild card as well, as last year's boys singles champ.

This is probably what will happen, but I'd rather they get MD WCs than to have the field filled by the next-in-line.

Re: Wild Cards

I think Evans will get a WC for his heroic efforts in Davis Cup. Plus his gamestyle fits to grass.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Better off them having qualifying wild cards as they aren't ready for the main draw of a Slam.

Re: Wild Cards

Other than the guys within the top 300, I think Golding stands the best chance.

Last year, he didn't look embarrassingly out of place at Queens or at Eastbourne qualies, and he won a round in Wimbledon qualies.

I don't think his points for his recent futures win have gone on yet, so he will be ranked within the top 500 after that, I guess. So he'll have risen about 500 places in the past year. In that time, he also won junior US Open, and his first two Futures titles.

He is probably showing enough promise to be awarded a wild card on the basis of being a talented teen, especially as we have so few players worth considering for it.
