First guess: Americans who don't qualify for the main draw.

I will be shocked if any non americans dont' get one.

The only player who isn't ranked high enough who would get one over an American, still has an injury protected ranking - that would be Krajicek.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Just as expected . . .

Eight U.S. men get wild cards for Open
August 14, 2002

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Vijay Amritraj's son, Prakash, and two-time NCAA champion Matias Boeker are among eight American men who received wild-card entries to the U.S. Open on Wednesday.

Alex Bogomolov Jr., Jack Brasington, Mardy Fish, Justin Gimelstob, Alex Kim and Brian Vahaly also were put into the main draw for the year's final Grand Slam tourney, which starts Aug. 26.

The women's wild-card entries are expected to be announced Thursday, and 1997 champion Martina Hingis probably will receive one of the berths.

Amritraj, an 18-year-old amateur, won the U.S. Tennis Association's Boys Super National Hard Court singles title Sunday. He was the MVP at the 2002 NCAA Championships as a freshman, leading Southern California to the title.

Boeker turned pro after his junior year at Georgia, when he became the first player since Mikael Pernfors (1984-85) to win consecutive NCAA men's singles titles.

Corina did exactly what Hingis did.

Furthermore Hingis getting a wild card allowed someone else direct entry into the main draw, who is way more likely to win a match then some American junior, or player ranked in the 500's somewhere.

*Hingis fan alert*



I don't like how tournaments give all the WC's to people from their country, over people who are more deserving - it isn't fair to those players from countries that dont have slams or masters, or other tournaments that are big.

That goes for the Canada masters tournament too by the way, which shouldn't have given them all the Canadians this year imo (just to show I'm consistent in my arguement)

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
