The lucky loser is the top ranked player who lost in the final qualifying round - right?

Just for non majors.

You mean there is a draw that picks lucky losers?
Is it made from the losers in the final round only?

Read this:

Quote:
Since 2006, the four highest ranked players who lose in the last round of qualification take part in a four-way random draw, the results of which are used to determine the order in which each player will enter the main draw. Consequently, if only one main draw spot for a lucky loser is available, the highest-ranked loser has just a 25% chance of entering the draw, instead of 100% as in the past. This element of uncertainty helps to ensure that final-round qualifying matches remain competitive. However, this rule does not apply in all other tournaments.

I thought so too, but on AO webpage it's written:

Lucky losers

If a main draw player is unable to play in the first round, the highest-ranked losing player in the third round of qualifying becomes a 'lucky loser' and fills the vacancy in the main draw.

Mahut likely wouldn't have won a singles match. It's for the best he's not in the singles MD so he can continue his recovery and focus on doubles.

Kukushkin I read was supposed to be out until February, so to see his name still entered is surprising. He has I believe R4 points to defend so it's probably desperation in his case.

Two Israelis in the main draw, we haven't had that since 2008. And with both having to qualify and making it? I don't know if that ever happened... well done to both of them, particularly Weintraub. He needs those $30K... it's almost the same as he made through all of last year...
As for the opponents - Sela got it hard, Davydenko has been in very good form lately, I think even the seeds didn't want to play against him. I'm not very familiar with Guido Pella who will play Weintraub, but compared to other options it's a good draw. I hope that like many Argentines he's better on clay.

Well the bad news is Pella is rather better on slow hardcourts, but the good news is it will be his first match of the year
