Ancic, Isner and Nishikori probably received a MD wildcard.

03-10-2008, 10:44 PM
yeah, i'm guessing they got wcs too (although ancic would probably get in without one - he's the third alt.)

At the time the entry list was made Ancic was probably ranked 100+ so he wouldn't make it directly (the qualifying entry list was made later after his Marseille result).

Why would Philip get a WC :haha:

It's not the first time Tennis Canada has an agreement with the Masters in Miami to give a WC to a Canadian player in exchange for a WC for a US player in the Montreal/Toronto Masters :eek:

Why would Philip get a WC :haha:

I think IMG is in charge of giving out the wildcards and I'm pretty sure Philip trains at the Nick Bollettieri Academy. That's probably why he got the wildcard. But still I'm quite surprised because Philip hasn't been playing too well since turning pro.

Why Elias got a WC? :rolleyes:

Must be because he reached semi-finals at Luxilon Cup last year... anyway the WC should have been given to McClune who was runner-up :shrug: maybe the American is injured and Elias earned the spot

And maybe because he's one of the best players on the 90 generation.I guess...Totally deserved :worship:

Totally UNDESERVED.

What will he do here, win what, 1 game, maybe 2 if hes lucky. A double bagel wouldnt surprised me.

A no-one junior shouldn't get a WC into an American TMS tournament. Sorry.

Elias may surpise some people. He's good!

bruzilio
03-21-2008, 03:29 PM
Why don't you question Berankis WC? He's in the same conditions. And the only time Gastão played a top-100 player, he lost in the fifth set against Robin Haase in his home country. He's got a lot of talent ;)

Snowwy
03-21-2008, 03:32 PM
Elias may surpise some people. He's good!

I like Elias, but he has never even won a challenger match. In 2008 he has lost to the following outstanding players:

Caio Zampieri (on hard)
Julio-Cesar Campozano
Luka Gregorc
Oliver Sajous
Milan Pokrajac
Ryan Haviland

good luck to hartfield and juan pablo!! =D

johnnylad

But he's been going deep in Futures and junior slams. Futures/Challengers and ATPs are closer than you think in terms of level. Its just that most players below the ranking of 50-75 are routinely ignored.

Snowwy
03-21-2008, 09:49 PM
He has gone far in two future events. He has played zero challenger MD matches. In the past year he has beaten 2 players inside the top 500.

johnnylad
03-22-2008, 11:22 AM
I think beating Bozoljac on hard courts shows promise.

Lets wait and see.

rvugt
03-22-2008, 12:29 PM
But Bozoljac has a hard time lately, so doesn't say that match!
Nice that Wessels is also in the qualy draw, I hope he can make it to the MD although I don't think so!
Does anybody of you know when the qualification draw is done?? I hope soon, because I don't have much time in the end of this weekend to send my TT picks!!

Player Zone at the ATP :) You either have to have direct access to it, or, at least, access to a site where someone else may choose to post the info, if that makes sense. The info eventually gets posted here when someone like smucav comes online. I have copy/pasted the relevant bit for you though. Hope that helps :)
