Wow...what an entry list. The bottom 3 seeds here wouldn't even get direct entry into Brisbane or Doha (except for Lu who would be last one in Doha)

I would suggest it might atleast be quite competitive with so few top players.:grin2:

Wild cards for:
- Arjun Kadhir
- Ramkumar Ramanathan
- Yuki Bhambri

His name is Kadhe. Never heard of him though. How the hell is he getting a WC but not Nagal, who won the challenger recently? He´s not even that young, Nagal is way younger.

Kadhe is playing college tennis in the US for Oklahoma State University. I guess the reason why he got the WC is that he is born in Pune and the only local player from the city because Bhambri (New-Delhi) and Ramanathan (Chennai) are from other cities/regions.
Those indian tournaments are always giving at least one WC to local player and Kadhe is a very decent player with huge serve and nice aggressive forehand.

But i agree, Nagal should have received a MDWC and Kadhe could have get one for the Qualifying.

I guess Yuki Bhambri got in directly - so he might have been replaced by Paire. Not liking this as Paire could very well have got a direct acceptance if he planned it early.
Agreed, I don't like it either

Maybe ATP could create a new rule to forbid giving wild cards to players whose ranking is higher than the last player's of the direct entry list, this would be push the few scatterbrains to be better organized.
It's a little disrespectful towards players who don't have the ranking and are hoping for a WC to just forget about your pro career while you're on holidays and then beg for a WC
