I dont know that giving a wild card to a player who actively avoids playing on the surface is a good idea.

Default Re: Wild Cards

Mahut Based solely on reputation I guess. Pouille will be eaten alive; I hope it won't destroy his confidence.

So sad to see Teixeira needing a QWC.

If 2 more people in main draw drop out will someone else get Monfils wildcard or will they just go in line on the alternates of the entry list.

The FFT ain't the AELTC; no way that they are not using that WC.

I admit that there are not a ton of alternatives but it does not seem right to be to reward a player in Barty who actively avoids playing on clay by giving her a wild card to the biggest clay court event. Not to mention the fact that every wild card she has recieved thus far has been a complete waste. Yes she is very young but that is why making her qualify might be better for her

why not go with someone like Gajdasova?
