I would give the other 3 to Matosevic, Duckworth and Mitchell. Hopfully someone like Gooch can win the play off.

These r going to be the Wildcards:
- Matosevic (will win WC playoff)
- Greg Jones (will make final of play off and is highest ranked of all Aussies not granted main draw)
- Hewitt (cause he already has one
- Benjamin Mitchell (he is young and a bright prospect, had some good results on futures)
- had probs Duckworth (cause hes young and done pretty well in wc playoff so far)

Guccione lost to JP smith in wc playoff that probs lost his chance for D WC
Groth has been around for too long and is like 22 years old he will be over looked for someone younger
JP smith hasnt been in the TA program long enough, this will see him overlooked
Matt Reid lost first round in WC playoff..

James Lemke would be a complete waste. Nice guy, I'm sure, but really not a worldbeater.

Haha i dont rate him either....neither Dane Proppogia
...any better suggestions tho...we dont really have anyone else...
There might be one or two surprises. I think a QWC spot will clear up for Matt Reid so both Lemke and Propoggia could actually make it :unsure: Should Luczak not make it into the QD, I would sincerely hope he gets a spot over Lemke.

Kubler will be a certainty should he choose to play. Ball will come into consideration for a WC but whether or not he deserves one is debatable. Isaac Frost has shown good form in the Australian Futures but at 22 he is a Grandpa in Tennis Australia's books. Maverick Banes and Matt Barton have decent chances of getting one and will definitely be ahead of Propoggia. Guys like Klein, Kelly and Lindahl are in Tennis Australia's bad books so they have next to no chance of obtaining one. If Tennis Australia decides to go down the youth policy route (I am refering to Tennis Australia's definition of youth and not the normal standards) don't be surprised to see names such as Andrew Whittington, Alex Bolt, Blake Mott and Chris O'Connell.

Kubler didnt choose to play last year, he didnt take any part of the WC playoff which normally disregards people who didnt play for WC (unless they are injured which im pretty sure Kubler isnt)
I totally forgot about Ball..sadly i have a crappy feeling he will get one...even thought he has done Nothing but drop in rankings. Maverick Banes is a shocking player i watched him play WC playoff, i dont think he has a chance of being there, I did overlook Matt Barton he seems like a decent chance, Chris Oconnel has some good form, he might be chosen...i would disregard Bolt, Whittington nd Mott...i will put together my list for you updated soon
