Agreed...hopefully he will get a good draw and win a few rounds so he can get his ranking up so he won't need these wildcards.
I wonder how they determine who is should get wildcards...is it the USTA in the US? I know at our Challenger event in Dallas, the club owner wanted to give Andrew Illie a wild card because he was working out of club for several months last year. But I understand that he couldn't receive a WC since he was not from the US and they try to reserve those for promising american players.
Does anyone know the wildcard process for Challengers and ATP events?
