Unless pitiful results these weeks, Kuerten is supposed to have one.
With five WC remaining, then, for French players,It does not make many chances for Gaudio, Coria or others.
Roger-Vasselin, Prodon for almost sure, Recouderc, Chardy, Devilder or Mannarino maybe, and young players helped by French Federation like Eysseric, too much contenders to let a chance for another non-French WC, I presume. Whatever I may think of that, having seen Gaudio win at Nice after a huge lunch, and Coria so magician at his time.

You forgot Patience. Good run last year and top 120, i'm pretty sure he will get one.
Hard to tell who deserves the most the others... agree for the rest of your list. Next challengers will be important.

Coria is #3 on the alternates list with his protected ranking, he probably won't need a WC anyway *if* he wants to play there.
It will be close for Gaudio, but I wouldn't rule it out.

You are right, and Olivier Patience didn't deserve me to forget him ! I wish him a WC as I always saw him behaving well, even a few years ago in my Paris suburbs like LePlessisRobinson or Montrouge for local tournaments!
I forgot Montcourt too, but he, as Haehnel, doesn't seem in such a condition nowadays to be among the top remaining French contenders.
And ... well done for Cherbourg and what I read about from you on another site ;*)

USTA Hosts Tournament For French Open Wild Cards
By Tennis Week
4/29/2008 8:23:00 PM

The road to Roland Garros will wind through Boca Raton for some young Americans.

The USTA is hosting playoffs this week to award a men’s and a women’s singles main draw wild card to the 2008 French Open. The wild card tournaments will take place on the clay courts of the Boca West Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., April 29–May 3. The USTA and the French Tennis Federation have a reciprocal agreement in which wild card entries into the main draw at the 2008 French Open and 2008 U.S. Open are exchanged.

Four players will compete for the men’s wild card: Jesse Levine, 20, of Boca Raton, Fla.; Wayne Odesnik, 22, of Weston, Fla.; Ryan Sweeting, 20, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and Sam Warburg, 24, of Sacramento, Calif.

Eight players are scheduled to compete for the women’s wild card: Lauren Albanese, 18, of Coral Springs, Fla.; Madison Brengle, 18, of Dover, Del.; Alexa Glatch, 18, of Newport Beach, Calif.; Jamea Jackson, 21, of Bradenton, Fla.; Melanie Oudin, 17, of Marietta, Ga.; Ahsha Rolle, 23, of Miami Shores, Fla.; and Coco Vandeweghe, 17, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., are confirmed.

Asia Muhammad, 17, of Las Vegas, Nev., withdrew due to injury today. The status of her replacement is to be determined, according to the USTA.

The men’s playoff is a round robin format and will begin on Tuesday, April 29 and conclude Thursday, May 1. The women will be divided into two four-player round robin groups. The winners from each group will play each other to determine the wild card. The women’s event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 30 – Saturday, May 3.

Winners on Day One of the men's round-robin event include Jesse Levine, who defeated Sam Warburg, 6-7 (7), 7-5, 6-4, and Wayne Odesnik, who won after Ryan Sweeting retired in the third set of their match with a lower back injury. The score when he retired was 4-6, 6-3, 3-0.
On Wednesday, Warburg will face Odesnik, and Levine will take on Sweeting in the second.

Odesnik should have this WC in the bag, IMO.
