Bob Bryan and Lindsay Davenport are getting a mixed doubles wildcard (yes I know it's not important, but it's still kind of fun).
no i dont think so there are players that deserve it moreWhat about giving a WC to Frank Dancevic? He made the finals of Eastbourne last year, and has been competitive at Wimbledon before, beating Nalbandian in straights in 08. His ranking probably would have been good enough to get in had it not been for the injury that kept him out for 9 months
no, again not reallyGabashvili :lol: Cause that's a name that's going to a) attract loads of fans and b) scare anyone in the MD. Granted, he's done well recently, but Dancevic > Gabashvili, surely.
so he loses the points, chances are this soon into his comeback he wouldnt have had a shot at defending thim anyway.if they were to give the Wc to Dancevic then that would give him a chance to defend his points from making the final last year in eastbourne, a chance he won't get if he has to play Wimbledon Qualifying. I don't have anything against giving Gabashvili one but I do think they should give Dancevic one
I am not saying Dancevic should be given a WC; I am saying he is more deserving than Gabashvili. Grass is his best surface, he has done well in the UK, has done reasonably well at Wimbledon.no, again not really
why grant a guy who's been out with injury a wild card? hes match rusty and did just lose to dustin brown of all people
its better to let dancevic earn his way into wimbledon through qualifying
i am for giving the young players who have yet to make a slam debut in the main draw the wild cards
players like berankis and krajinovic.
Agreed. And even if they give WCs to British players, there certainly will be a better ambiance at those matches than at any match involving Kavcic or Kunitsyn.Anything to do with British mens tennis these days pisses me off. Not giving out the other 3 WCs is a pathetic decision imo. They did that last year, and look what happened...they invited Canas of all players into the main draw. It's a good thing that Odesnik has been suspended, otherwise a similar thing could have happened again (would have been ranked around the cut-off).
There are a handful of international players they could have given WCs to. Yes, they might not actually win a match (but would you expect any more from Kunitsyn, Kavcic?), but they would have been more interesting to watch. Certainly Mahut could have been one such choice.
