But these players might be hit hard mentally if they get a MD WC and then get annihilated. I would prefer to see Marie and Olivetti in the QD. Mina should stay away from Porte d'Auteuil as he simply isn't ready for this level. Stick with the Futures and get some results there.

A MD WC would be better spent on Herbert, as he could actually be competitive for a set or two against some players.

Olivetti is all serve and Mina is absolutely nothing at the moment.

Why should lazy Fatbandian get a WC here? Would be a disgusting choice.

Would even prefer a 15yo junior instead of this guy.

He can play Qualies like Haas last year.

I was wondering how possible a WC to Carreno-Busta can be. This player has impressive results and can be interesting to see in the MD. Probably more in a QD. Anyway, the last time a WC has been given to a non French is Gaudio in 2009, because he won RG in 2004.. I cannot imagine the organizers given a WC to a non French player..

Pablo shouldn't get one, I think. It's better if he comes through qualies, where I think he would have one or two tough matches anyway. Then he can acclimatize and maybe win a round or two in the main draw. But I quite honestly wouldn't be surprised if he fell in the final qualifying round.

A couple of days ago, I responded to a comment about the USTA's French Open wild card points accrual with the statement that in 2012, the qualifying points were counted in determining the winner.

This is incorrect. Qualifying points earned do not count in the standings now, nor did they last year, when Brian Baker and Melanie Oudin won the French Open wild cards with their performances in the designated tournaments, now known as the Har-Tru USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenge.

The fact sheets for the 2013 Har-Tru Challenge, which can be found on the Pro Circuit home page at usta.com, state "The wild card will be awarded to the American player with the highest total of cumulative singles main draw ATP (or WTA) ranking points..."(emphasis mine), and I'm told that was the same as last year, and Baker's point total from last year bears that out.

Why qualifying points wouldn't count, although a minor issue, is a question that has been raised by a few readers, and Lew Brewer, who is the USTA point person on this, provided me with this answer.

"Our opinion is that we think that's the most fair," Brewer told me in a telephone conversation. "I understand why people would argue why you would want to include the qualifying points--because it's hard to qualify, they've played matches already. The other side of that is that they get extra points if they qualify. They've been around the site for a few days, so they've acclimated, especially if someone is coming from another tournament, and they've had that opportunity to get used to the courts, the facility, the water, all that stuff. I think a lot of times that's why you see some upsets in the the first round, because qualifying players have had a chance to get used to the whole atmosphere. We feel it is just more fair for everyone just to count the main draw points."

I personally would like to see the qualifying points count, while recognizing that it's probably never going to matter and is a small part of an otherwise great system for awarding a wild card. My feeling, which I relayed to Brewer, is that the minuscule points on offer for qualifying, where you must win 2 or 3 matches, make this an "advantage" that is very expensive in terms of physical exertion. And if the ATP (or WTA) is awarding points for a result, they have determined it has value, so I don't think it's necessary to exclude it from this competition. But my thoughts are just that, and the fact sheet provided the notice necessary to the participants, so the discussion is now just expressing opinions now that I've gotten the facts straight myself.

For the USTA wildcard, the scenario is quite clear now.
If Wayne Odesnik wins Tallahassee, he will earn the main draw WC unless Alex Kuznetsov reaches the final.
Otherwise it will be Alex Kuznetsov who secures the spot.

This is the third and final week of the Har-Tru USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenge with the women competing in a $50,000 event in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida and the men at a $50,000 tournament in Tallahassee.

Alex Kuznetsov, who won the $100,000 Sarasota Challenger, leads the men with 118 points, while 2010 USTA junior champion Shelby Rogers, who just won the $50,000 Charlottesville Challenger with a 6-3, 7-5 win over wild card Allie Kiick, now has the lead in the women's race for the USTA's French Open wild card. Rogers also reached the doubles finals at the Boar's Head Club with Nicole Gibbs, losing to CoCo Vandeweghe and her partner Nicola Slater of Great Britain 6-3, 7-6(4). Both Kuznetsov and Rogers are playing in this week's tournaments, with Kuznetsov needing only to hold off Wayne Odesnik to secure the main draw wild card. The complete standings can be found at the USTA Pro Circuit page.
