Wimbledon Wildcards.

I have just read a report on the BBC website saying that Delgado has failed to get a Wimbledon wilcard. Since there are 8 on offer, how on earth have we filled 8 places without him?!!!! Here is the possible list: -

01 - Goran Ivanisevic
02 - Arvind Parmar (not in top 150 though)
03 - Jonathan Marray (well-deserved)
04 - Alex Bogdanovic (won't be in top 300 on Monday)
05 - Alan Mackin (top 300 but why do we bother?!!)
06 - Greg Rusedski (please somebody help him!!)
07 - Lee Childs (please draw Davydenko again!!!)
08 - ?

What about the other 1? Is it reserved for Delgado in case he beats Marray on Wednesday? Should he do that then he will just get in the top 300 i think.
It can't be reserved for Andrew Murray because he is still injured.

Anybody got any ideas what the LTA are playing at? Alternatively, wo do you think should get the final WC?

Anybody that doen't pay much interest in British tennis may have problem answering this question i think!

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards.

I'm not too convinced Alex will get a wildcard this year. Mark Petchey is one of the guys dishing them out and unless he and Bogdanovic have kissed and made up recently...

Mackin is hated by the LTA and the LTA hate him...maybe he hasn't got one. Then where did the other 3 go?!!! Oh crap - how stupid i am - 2 are reserved for the WC play-offs aren't they! That means that maybe Bogo hasn't got one yeah.

Re: Wimbledon Wildcards.

Maybe they will give it to an Aussie. Didn't they have a deal in place?

No deal for the men as far as i know - what i do know is that if we gave the Aussies a male WC then they sure didn't give us one! I think it is the women who do the reciprocal agreement thingy.
