Default Re: Wild Cards

Let the speculation begin.

Except for TA's wild card, all the 2006 main draw and qualifying wild cards went to American players age 22 & under:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...1&postcount=80

Highest-ranked Americans age 23 & under (as of 8/13/07):

Rank Name (Age)
153 Odesnik, Wayne (21) MD WC
182 Kuznetsov, Alex (20) MD WC
192 Isner, John (22) MD WC
199 Ram, Rajeev (23) QD DA
232 Young, Donald (18) MD WC
250 Sweeting, Ryan (20) MD WC
266 Evans, Brendan (21) QD DA
323 Jenkins, Scoville (20) QD WC
330 Simmonds, Phillip (21) QD WC
359 Cook, Lester (23) QD WC
374 Oudsema, Scott (21) QD DA
393 De Heart, Ryler (23) QD WC
461 Kryvonos, Nikita (20) QD WC
483 Levine, Jesse (19) MD WC
615 McClune, Michael (17) MD WC
685 Yim, Robert (22)
703 Fass, Adam (22)
715 Bruch, Matt (22) QD WC

I went back & reread some older information before I started this thread. From everything I read, the agreement between USTA & TA for reciprocal wild cards was for the U.S. Open 2006/Australian Open 2007 only. Perhaps the agreement has been renewed, but I haven't read anything about it.

The draws for Kalamazoo are out:

Young did not enter so he must be confident of getting a wild card.

Yes. Add Kuznetsov to that list.

Possibly Evans, Oudsema, Simmonds. I hope Jenkins doesn't get one this year, as he doesn't deserve one based on his results.

There are several USTA "national" championships for juniors, but Kalamazoo is much bigger & is considered the USTA "super-national" championships. The 14s & 12s (& all the girls' divisions) are played at other sites around the same time.

Default Re: Wild Cards

Anyone know why Rhyne Williams isn't playing Kalamazoo, I would've figured he was a serious contender for it.

Jan-Michael Gambill is entered into qualifying, I wouldn't be surprised if he got a WC to the main draw. Also, if Odesnik can pull off an upset over Del Potro (currently starting the 3rd set), he'll probably be in contention for a WC as well. My guess is that Young, Isner, and Kuznetsov are locks.
