Australian Open Wildcards.

Its getting closer and closer. So who do you all think will get the 5 Aussie Wildcards?

I would like to see:
LLeyton Hewitt
Marinko Matosevic
Chris Guccionie
James Duckworth
Ben Mitchell/Greg Jones

Im leaning more towards Ben Mitchell. But im not sure he is quite ready for ATP level yet.

Re: Australian Open Wildcards.

8 WC - wild cards given to USA, France and Asia. One WC playing out in playoffs - I think Mato win this playoff, because Lleyton will not play AO playoff WC, and so has four - I think Lleyton Hewitt, Chris Guccione, Fernando Gonzalez and Jason Kubler.

Re: Australian Open Wildcards.

No way Kubler he hasnt played much this season. Although he has had good results on the clay towards the end of this year. I dont think a foregin player will get one from TA.

Re: Australian Open Wildcards.

Gonzalez would get in with his PR. Luczak his last tournament they should give him one.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Kubler earned the wild card, Tomic was not ready for the tour but it still gave 16 years WC where one can.

I said ages ago, that is his last event.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Australian Open Wildcards.

Maybe give Kubler the Roland Garros wildcard but not AO.

mine

Lleyton
Mitchell
Duckworth
Jones

Gooch and Mato are a bit old imo.

I think JP Smith will win the playoff.

What a good idea.

Luczak deserve an AO one. Lleyton is just a formality. I know there is some TA reasoning behind this, but Jones hasn't had nearly enough Australian summer wild cards for his ranking and age. I really hope he gets one.
