No. USO and AO trade WC. That's why Alun Jones from Australia has a WC to USO.

Not really. Surprised Scoville Jenkins has only got a qualifying WC though.

Donald Young, Isner and Kuznetsov deserve their WCs for sure.

Re: what a joke..us open wc's announced

On the whole, this looks like a great list. Why would you consider it a joke, especially for the main draw? Who would be other choices?

The only one I might question for the main draw is Ryan Sweeting. He hasn't done much lately, but he did reach the second round last year, so that, coupled with his age, is probably enough to merit a wildcard selection.

Jenkins has had several main draw wildcards, so he might have merited a selection, but then again, what has he done lately. I'd have looked at Jenkins and Sweeting and chosen based on who has had the most successful 12 months -- or based on who is ranked higher. I haven't a clue about that.

The qualifying wildcards are a bit puzzling, with several names I haven't heard. Maybe they're college students who will benefit from the experience.

Jenkins was quite promising at one point.

Re: what a joke..us open wc's announced

Crap system from the US... I like it at Wimbledon where they give 5 WCs to British players and then the other 3 go to others... so 1 goes to the boys junior champion of the previous year and the other 2 to recently good performing players who are not in the top 100.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

He won Kalamazoo so he gets an automatic wildcard for the MD.

Re: what a joke..us open wc's announced

Too many Americans - Dancevic deserved a spot right into the main draw after his play in Indy and Montreal this summer but unrecognized by the USTA. I hope he qualifies and doesn't blow his momentum!

I'm excited to see how some of these young Americans do, especially Isner and Odesnik.
