Re: French Open Wildcard.

Duckworth does not get a wild card in any case, if Lleyton did not have time to prepare for Roland Garros, wild card will awarded Marinko Matosevic. I hope Lleyton have time, because we will play against Germany on the clay, and Duckworth for sure in September, will not play. Young players must fight their way, don't wait for the gifts, they will progress quickly. Don't tire of repeating, Lleyton in 15 years to qualify for AO, it must be an example for new our players of generation.

Re: French Open Wildcard.

Duckworth, under any circumstances, don't given a wild card, he's not playing in the Davis Cup, already known, in cases of refusal Hewitt, a wild card will awarded Matosevic.

Re: French Open Wildcard.

Marinko is my bet - he is now ranked under 100 and can mix it with guys ranked at his level.
anybody else, including LLeyton, would be a waste and an injustice.
LLeyton has not had enough match practise after his latest layoff yet.

Re: French Open Wildcard.

We last won Davis Cup in 2003. We made the SF in 2006 and have been playing zonals and playoffs since then. The fact that he's making himself available each year to play 2 matches China, Thailand or Chinese Taipei or whatever in recent years is really nothing to be continuously rewarded for. I recognize he's one of our best Davis Cup players ever, but a clay GS WC at this stage of his career after no match play is beyond stupid, especially when there are other legitimate players worthy of the WC (for once!) in Matosevic and maybe Duckworth. Especially Matosevic.

Lleyton will get into quallies. If he's still serious about coming back I thought he'd rather do it there where he doesn't have the chance to draw Federer, Nadal, Djokovic in R1.

Re: French Open Wildcard.

I am sure Marinko will be spewing with this news. He should do pretty well in the qualifying though with his current form though.

Re: French Open Wildcard.

I lost my bet...
It's Hewitt! Wtf ????
Hope he is fit enough, otherwise it is just a waste.
At the US Open, Hewitt withdrew due to injury and Marinko the wild card, so maybe this is pay-back time?

Re: French Open Wildcard.

No wonder Australian tennis is going down the gurgler. Hewitt is 31 years old, hasn't played a competitive match since Davis Cup, has only ever made the QF at Roland Garros, and hasn't played a competitive match on clay since 2010!

A player breaks TOP 100 for the first time, reaches an ATP final, wins 2 challengers, and has to play qualifying! TA talk about rewarding results, well maybe they should start rewarding recent ones instead of results from a decade ago. Hmm.
