It's very well possible that they decide not to award one or more of the remaining spots. They've done so in the past few years, and just let some ALTs get in.

Falla getting one is understandable. Made RG R4, almost beat Roger last year, is capable of winning matches in the MD. It falls in line with their previous history of rewarding guys who have good RG's with Wimbledon WC's.

The other wildcards were pretty obvious picks all in all.

No time for giving a WC for the sake of some sentimental value (Falla, Clement). What was the point in these WC's only to stick them out in court 14 for first 2 matches?

I thought that you had to have a rank of better than 250 to be given a WC for the brits? Seems like that idea has been thrown out the window and then Cox and Evans are terrible picks. May as well give them to Golding and Morgan who have far more potential and ability than either of those.


That is just my opinion though and i don't expect many people to agree with it

Eaton? For real? He's not deserving of a MD WC at all. I know his game suits grass, but I can't see him getting one for the MD. He should be given a QWC so that he can try and repeat his 2008 run, via qualies, into the 2R though.

Fusovics has done practically nothing on tour to deserve the chance, so they might make an exception and only give him a QWC.

Golding is a guy who I can see getting a WC, but do the other Brits deserve it? Bloomfield, Eaton, Bogdanovic, will not be getting one, probably ever again. I think they may just eliminate the rest of the WCs and go with the next alternates.

Default Re: Wild Cards

Going on last year's logic....

* one Pommy player got in (Baker). This year, we have 3 (Cox, Evans, Ward).
* one player who was once good got in (Kiefer). Clement sort of covers this, although he never did a lot in his career outside of the Aussie Open 2001.
* one young gun who was injured got in (Nishikori). No young guns this year have got WC's yet, though I feel Tomic, Harrison and Kunzetsov have good cases for a WC.
* one player who had a good run at RG got in (Gabashivili). This year, Falla made the 4th round after qualifying (like Gaba), and obviously got the WC. Can sorta see Kubot getting one too.
* the Boys champion of the year before (Kunzetsov). Dunno whether Fucsovics deserves one tbh due to how low his ranking is, but there's a significant argument for him getting one.

Might there be anything else? The year before last they went 4 Pommy players (Ward, Evans, Boggers, Goodall), one player with significant grass court pedigree (Mahut), one former star (Ferrero), and the Boys champion of 2008 (Dimitrov). Who has significant grass court pedigree who isn't in the top 100 though?

2008 they went with a grass Challenger winner (Dancevic), a good run at RG (Chardy), a former 'star' (Malisse), 2 Poms (Baker, Boggers), 1 random choice (Kunistyn) and the next 2 alternates (Ascione, Spadea). Last year's Junior winner, Young, was already in the MD iirc.

2007 they went with 5 Poms (Baker, Goodall, Boggers, Bloomfield, Marray), 2006's Junior winner (de Bakker), the winner of a grass Challenger winner and a good run at Queens (Tsonga), and someone else who made a good run at Queens (Cilic).
