Apparently Brian Baker was denied a WC for a futures tourney last summer.

Brian Baker... Same guy that USTA refused to give a WC for qualies of the clay court future last summer...
Maybe a possibility for him to skyrocket to the top 100 in the future

Thanks for the link LastRocket. I hope he can play Wimbledon this year.

Quote:
I asked Brian how he felt watching Wimbledon. “I couldn’t for the first couple of years; it was hard to see people I’d beaten just a couple of years ago doing so well, players like Murray and Djokovic and Monfils,” he said, referring to Andy Murray and Gael Monfils. “I’m happy for them, but I know that, healthy, I could make it.”

Glad he got it, considering his story (which I never knew until yesterday )

Not necessarily a Baker fan, but it's great.

If the USTA is smart they will start supporting Brian financially. He doesn't even have a coach right now.

“I’m excited,” Baker said. “This is my first grand slam (event) since the U.S. Open in 2005. It’s not like I’m going to grand slams every year.”
