Honestly, I think that's a bunch of crap. Ernests has been playing well. He did great in Orleans and would have done even better had he not got the injury. I have not looked at the qualifier list, and although Ernests' ranking is very low, I think he still should be considered a big name. To me, the Wildcard seemed to be a natural choice without trying to make nice of past situations. I don't know exactly why he was given the wild card, but I also think people like to stir the pot a bit, and take credit away from Ernests. I too hope Ernests proves how much he deserves the wildcard!
unfortunately they did even write on the official tournament page, that he got the WC because of that old shi... I read it and was like- wtf?
