Question Roland Garros Wild Cards

Hi everybody!
For my first post, a question: who should receive a wild card this year?
One is reserved for an Australian player, what about the seven others?
I think Llodra is sure to have one but I'm not sure the FFT will give one to Haehnel or Patience.

Re: Roland Garros Wild Cards

According to the ranking, the 7 first names are Gicquel, Patience, Llodra, Saulnier, Ascione, Dupuis and Faurel.
Despite his results, Ascione has always received a WC when he asked (remember Metz)...
Saulnier never had great results on clay. Dupuis has results on clay, but last year he didn't get the WC, too old...
Devilder and Chardy could take their places.

Re: Roland Garros Wild Cards

I don't think Haehnel will get a wildcard. Even though I would like to see him get one. *sigh* His results haven't been that great this year. I hope Ascione gets a wildcard.

Allez! Nicolas Escudé Jérôme Haehnel Arnaud Clément Sébastien Grosjean Thierry Ascione Olivier Mutis Julien Varlet

C'mon! Lleyton Hewitt Mark Philippoussis Todd Reid

Re: Roland Garros Wild Cards

I wonder if they'll give WCs to Chardy and Sidorenko, the reigning Wimby Juniors runner-up and AO Juniors champion respectively.

Re: Roland Garros Wild Cards

I was quite sure for Ascione. Montcourt is a surprise, good luck for him!
Faurel lost in qualif in challenger this week, not good for a WC.
I think San Remo could be decisive for Patience and Devilder.
And why not Dip?
