Quick look at who didn’t enter
Donaldson - still hurt?? What a bummer
Retiring Julien B, Ferrer, Muller
Bolivian Dellien- what the heck- why wouldn’t a journeyman take a chance to play a grand slam ?
Polmans- what the real heck?! Has he been assured a WC????
Hanfman- again, like Jared, still hurt- bummer- I thought he liked Oz
Kicker- suspended- did I read that was for 3 years ? Poor Nicky
Rosol- unpopular player seems to do as he pleases

In addition, I think, the following are missing:
- Zopp - injured?
- Zeballos - focusing on Doubles?
- Quiroz ?? - he's in the entry list of Playford CH in week 1, which makes it even stranger, that he's missing here.

https://www.tennisworldusa.org/tennis/news/Tennis_Stories/62834/jack-sock-secures-australian-open-wild-card-after-winning-the-challenge/


i think Sock has a wildcard to main draw. if he gets in directly it looks like those below would be in running (article is 1 month old)

"Youngsters Tommy Paul and Reilly Opelka have won titles in the last couple of weeks to stand on the 80 points and they should battle for that second place on the list and a chance to secure the Australian Open wild card if Sock gets in the draw directly, which is very likely to happen.

Bjorn Fratangelo is currently fourth and he opted to play the stronger Challenger in Houston, hoping to add enough points to his tally and pass Tommy and Reilly. There's a WTA 125K Series event in Houston as well

Dellien seems indeed to prefer to focus on clay.

2 weeks ago, he said, that he wants to play Cordoba and Buenos Aires and therefore was thinking about not competing in the AO.
Dellien apunta al Top-50 para 2019 - La Razón
Dellien says in the article that he wants to play Cordoba, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and Rio and then play Miami and Indian Wells. But he will be at best an alternate in the South American tournaments.
Londero is a similar kind of player and very close in the ranking and also 25 years old. But Londero is playing Pune and Australia.
Bagnis was a similar player. Played very strong on clay in challengers, but has never really made it on the tour.
It will be difficult to enter the top 100/50 for the likes of Dellien, Londero if they do not add a bit of hard court in their schedules

I get he wants to play on clay and play in s America- close to home and good for expenses.
But I think it is weird he wouldn’t play earlier in the year in Australia where there is a grand slam for goodness sake and no clay court events at the same time anyway.
I actually think he would like it here
What a waste

And as you said - Londero in a similar situation but has decided to come to Oz . I hope he does well and breaks into the top 100
