Number of 8 is too much for grand slam WC's. every year they give Mahut ERV and co. who are old and useless, they don't deserve but get one just because they are french. Make it 6 or even 4.

Have the British not even bothered with a WC this year or is still being decided?

Why is Kokk getting a wild card instead of being a direct entry? He's #98 in the ranking.
Think the rankings cutoff for the main draw was a while ago. Might catch Chung as well, despite him being up to the 60s now.

Thanks! It's interesting that the direct entry cut-off is weeks before the tournament (when many lower ranked players could possibly have good runs at Masters tournaments), but the seedings depend on the results from the week before (effectively Madrid-Rome performance).

Could Australin federation change the WC in case Kokkiakis becomes a direct entry in case of several withdrawls? Just like Bolelli---Vanni WC in Rome.
