Seriously though, sometimes I can not understand the thought process behind the approval process.

I once wanted the following picture approved and it was rejected Plain It's completely harmless and not more of a copyright infringement than any of the other pictures that are uploaded and approved all the time.

Maybe play another Bastad or Stockholm one day. Then again, his current resumé would already say his last result is a win in Bastad.

Has mono always been an issue for tennis players or did it start in the last 5-10 years?

Found some other articles on CNN as well, for instance one on Isner where he talks about his friendship with Mahut after that Wimbledon match and I also learned that he is a big wrestling fan (WWE).

Announcing our 2015 Wildcards!
The complete list of wildcards for men into the main draw is Andrey Rubley, Hyeon Chung, Ryan Harrison and Kyle Edmund. Receiving wildcard entries into qualifying on the men’s side include Gianluigi Quinzi, Omar Jasika, Michael Mmoh, Taro Daniele and Elias Ymer.
Women receiving wildcards into the main draw include Cici Bellis, Indy Devroome, Nicole Vaidisova, Sorana Cirstea, Natalya Vikhlyantseva, Paula Badosa. Laura Robson, Oceane Dodin, Fanny Stollar, Ipek Soylu, Aranza Rus, Sachia Vickery, all received qualifying wildcard entries.


At first sight there are at least four names that ain't spelt right.

Miami know how to sell tickets, fair play to them.

Indian Wells, can someone tell me why they are giving that 30 year old lump Mattek Sands a wildcard? what is the point? there should be some kind of Rule that governs pointless wildcards being given out, you can understand it with the 5 younger American's all 22 or under but this is pointless. You can only assume it's an American thing because 'she's a bit of  character', it's times like this when you need a head in hands emoticon.

And why are they given a wildcard to Vekic again? I don't see what's she's done to warrant one, after KL last year she barely won any matches at tour level (4) and had a poor year thus far, also Serena should have been denied a WC, what a liberty leaving it that late before flouncing in at the last minute deciding you want to play when you've only had 14 years to think about it, and denying someone's else chance, someone more worthy, someone ranked 142 and need of a boost in confidence.

ffs.
Report edy March 6, 2015 10:40 AM GMT
IMG owns Miami, Cirstea is an IMG player, that's the only reason she got a wild card there. Larry Ellison would've never ever in a million year given that hopeless case of a ballbasher a wild card.

Ah, yes, I didn't spot the Q letters next to the matches on matchstat. It's worse than you thought. Three of those six matches were qualifiers, leaving only three tour wins for Vekic after week 16 (KL) last year. Vinci at Wimbledon, Savchuk at Baku, and Minella at Tashkent.
