Default Re: Wild Cards

Am I missing something? Llodra seems an odd choice for the french to choose. A younger player would surely benefit more. Rufin or Jouan perhaps, or even Mannarino. Mind you wimbledon would still give Henman or Rusedski a MD Wild Card if they asked.

Llodra is not so old ... but well, I guess the decision is mainly because Llodra plays for the Davis Cup team and that's why he's important for the FFT.

29 years old.
And he hasn't won 2 matches in a row since Marseille, not even in qualies.
But it's for the Davis Cup indeed, they said it very clearly.

Definitely not Jouan, chavkev, but Mannarino and Ouanna would have been the logical picks if the wild-card had been awarded according to the usual criteria (both quite young and better ranked than Llodra - #94 and #103).

Just seems a bit of a backwards move. The agreement that they have with the us and aussies offers great opportunities to develop French talent.

Mannarino & Ouanna may get in off the alternate list:

ESPN confirmed that Ryan Sweeting received the remaining main draw wild card (previously reserved for Ram).

I'd rather go for Harrison instead of Britton, the rest are fine.

Ram will in all likelihood still get in, so it will be interesting to see who that WC goes to.

No Sweeting or Kuznetsov, USTA cracks me up
I'd think Sweeting will probably Ram's when he gets in.
No Kuznetsov

Gaudio is here, didn't realize he would be.
Final QWCs went to Cox, McClune, Sandgren. Fair choices.
Cox needs to start proving his Wimbledon wasn't a fluke, though.

Expected QWC for Cox. Would have been a travesty if he hadn't been given one, really.
