In the Top 300 but not on the list:

Millman 198
Duckworth 209
Klein 238

Wonder if at least Millman and Duckworth will be getting WC directly without having to go through the playoff. If Ebden doesn't get Direct Entry, he's probably gonna get one, too.

Duckworth plays futures in Asia in that period (he's on the entry-list of a future in Hong Kong that week after one in Indonesia previous week), maybe that's the reason why he's not on the list.

But he will at least get a wild-card for qualies anyway if they don't give him one for main draw :shrug:

Klein also plays these Asian futures.

Ducky will get a MD wildcard anyway.

I'm hoping Gooch or Barton can prevail here but they are both long shots...

Er, yes, I knew that. Which is why I said:

There *are* four open wild cards, so I can't imagine them not going to Millman and Duckworth (and as I mentioned, Ebden if he doesn't get direct acceptance).
