Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

2 wildcards to give who has the best chances ?

I think Mahut will get one if he wins one more match.

Malisse reached 3th round in Queens ? I don't think it will be enough.

Rochus is only player without direct entry left in a QF of a grasstournament, but will they give him a WC ??? I doubt it.

What do you think ?

Re: Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

Who can dare try to read the mind of the Wimbledon committee? I agree Mahut deserves one.

Re: Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

Yeah, I hope that Mahut gets one as well...Wimbledon grass may be slower (than Queen's), but his game is tailor-made for the surface, and he is good to watch. I don't necessarily agree with others who say that he will 'easily' qualify, regardless...plenty of dangerous guys in a Slam qualifying draw that could cause upsets.

Don't have a preference for the other WC...although maybe Dent? Wouldn't give one to Malisse...don't think he is in particularly great shape, and if the decision is to be between these two, Dent has had the better results this year.

Re: Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

Dent got a WC into qualies, so it's probably that he's not getting one into the MD
I hope I'm wrong, I want Taylor in there

Re: Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

I would say it's going to be two of Mahut, Malisse and Hrbaty.

Unless the committee decides to give one to a youngster like Anderson, Devvarman or Tomic.

Or a former junior winner like De Bakker or God forbid... Donna Young.

Grosjean has no chance with two retirements in two weeks.

Re: Remaining Wimbledon Wildcards

Why should Mahut or Malisse get WCs now? They've lost two matches they should've won.

Don't think they will give one for Eaton, they have decided which brits get a WC and which not I think
