Re: Wild Cards

My predictions:

WC:
1) Evans
2) J. Ward
3) Cox
4) Smethurst
5) Edmund

these are pretty much locked, unless the LTA/AELTC decide to do something silly. Now it gets interesting. If they decide to be stingy and stick to their 250/promising youth ranking guidelines that's gonna be it. Any further wildcards for Brits will be Qualifying WC's.

I can't think who would get the last 3 WC's, maybe Darcis because of last lear if he's fit. If they can't think of anyone more deserving there might be a little treat for the winners of the Nottingham Challengers

QWC:
1) Rice
2) Willis
3) Golding
4) A Ward
5)
6)
7)
8)
9) Junior Wimbledon champ 2013?

Alex Ward has had injuries but is back and if fully fit should get a wildcard to qualifying (getting closer to his career high would help). The other names are at, or very close to career highs. Everyone else will have to go through the playoff.

Re: Wild Cards

Golding might be in with a shot at a MD WC. He has been on a tear since the end of last year and got a WC in 2012 when he deserved it much less (and he was very competitive against Andreev).

well who knows. In some years, the LTA has given its last wild cards to foreign players (like Dudi Sela), and for those who were alternatives on the MD list when they didn't have enough good Brits.

I'd still expect him to come through qualifying given his resurgence of late. Wouldn't be totally downbeat GMG

Re: Wild Cards

I think Broady and Bambridge and maybe even Norrie should be considered for QWC.

Alex Ward is 24 years old and was never top 300. Think that could work against him.

Decent shout but since he is going off to college in the autumn I bet they make him go through the playoffs.

He was getting there until he got injured and missed 4 months out. Since then he's reached 3 Futures finals (winning 1). I won't be surprised if they make him go through the playoffs but personally I think he's done enough.

Yeah, and I wouldn't hate it. It's just that he's behind the first 5 names I gave.............

Re: Wild Cards

And then Golding gets destroyed by Kubler He needs to do well these weeks to improve his ranking and get the AELTC's attention.

Definitely. Absent sufficient British candidates, those who do well in Nottingham have been getting one the last few years.

That sucks, because that information is really hard to come by.

Quote:
"A tacit rhetorical assumption here is that you have very probably never heard of Michael Joyce of Brentwood, L.A... Nor of Vince Spadea nor Jonathan Stark...--all ranked in the world’s top one hundred at one point in 1995. Nor of Jeff Tarango, sixty-eight in the world, unless you remember his unfortunate psychotic breakdown in full public view during last year’s Wimbledon.

You are invited to try to imagine what it would be like to be among the hundred best in the world at something. At anything. I have tried to imagine; it’s hard."
