Re: Wild Cards

Rajeev doesn't deserve a WC anyway.

Duckworth earned his WC; Rufin is an understandable choice. At least he won a Challenger recently.

Re: Wild Cards

After winning the (very weak) Rio Quente Challenger, Ram has beaten a grand total of three players: Goodall, Lacko and Bossel. He hasn't been injured.

Re: Wild Cards

Ram's WC is just to buy the USTA time, as he's the first alternate. Nobody has officially withdrawn yet.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: Qualifying Entry List (updated August 13, 2013)

Sandgren's wildcard now goes to Gage Brymer. A lot of young wildcard recipients.

Re: Wild Cards

Ram's Wild Card went to Smyczek. And Christian Harrison declined his QWC so it will go to Mackenzie McDonald.
