I hope not for Bernie. He's been looked after enough and delivered nothing but drama and ineptness the last year. It's time or Bernie to show he can fight through this patch by playing some good tennis against those ranked around him before getting another chance at those playing consistently above him.

Kokki is likely to get it I grant you but it would be better if they gave it to someone able to possibly reap the rewards now. Luke Saville is starting to show some form to go with his promise and would be the best candidate for the Aussie wild card as he is in the best position to use it and progress up the rankings in the next 12 months than any of the other options. I'd like to see Saville to be the recipient of it.

Not quite sure I agree about who will be able to reap the reward now between Saville and Kokkinakis, but either would be a better choice then wasting it on someone who should be able to breeze through qualifying if he is genuinely serious about the game again (as opposed to desperate for loot or stung by Kyrgios passing him).

Saville has made solid progress over the last year moving up from around 345 this time last year to 166 plus did well at Wimbly. But Kokkinakis is making more spectacular movement in the rankings (797 to 243 and still moving on the liveranking in the same period) and on the face of it looks set to catch up and overtake Saville pretty soon. Still, assuming he can getting into qualifying on the back of Lexington (is there a qualifying wc up for grabs as well?) no harm in him trying to do it that way.

Bernard, on the other hand...maybe its all down to his injury, but it's not obvious that's the case.

Surely Tomic will get in as a WC, right?

I cannot see Delpo play here with 0 warmups

NCAA champs to play American Collegiate Invitational
By Sally Milano
Thursday, August 7, 2014

A possible 2015 US Open main-draw wild card is at stake for eight men's and women's American college players who will compete in the inaugural American Collegiate Invitational at this year's US Open.

Headlining the field are 2014 NCAA singles champions Marcos Giron of UCLA, a 21-year-old from Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Danielle Collins of the University of Virginia, a 20-year-old from St. Petersburg, Fla. The remainder of the field will be announced Aug. 11, along with the players who will comprise the USTA Collegiate Team.

The American Collegiate Invitational will take place during the second week of the US Open, Sept. 4-6, with the champions coming back to compete in the 2015 US Open. If the men’s champion is ranked No. 250 or better and the women’s champion No. 150 or better at that time, they will receive a wild card into the 2015 US Open singles main draw. Otherwise, they will compete in the US Open Qualifying Tournament.

The Collegiate Invitational winners will also receive wild cards into two USTA Pro Circuit events, while each runner-up will get one.

“The American Collegiate Invitational demonstrates the USTA’s commitment to college tennis by awarding the men’s and women’s champions a wild card into next year’s US Open, providing the additional opportunity for collegians to develop in the professional game,” said USTA Chairman, CEO and President Dave Haggerty.

Giron turned pro this summer after his junior year at UCLA, while Collins is heading into her junior year at Virginia. As the reigning NCAA champions, both are possible wild cards into the main draw at this year's US Open.
