Former finalist...I guess he would deserve it if anyone deserves a Wild Card.

Yeah he finally got one. Along with Andrei Pavel, Jamie Baker, Richard Bloomfield, Alex Bogdanovic, Jamie Delgado, Martin Lee, and Alan Mackin. The last six are British men. Alan Mackin was the guy who got pasted by Federer at last year's Davis Cup.

On another note, Jelena Dokic got a wildcard into the Wimbledon Women's QUALIFYING Round. She was a semifinalist six years ago. She's really fallen to need a wildcard into qualifying.

Dokic asked for a qualifying wc for match practice, same reasoning behind Mardy Fish entering a ton of challengers as of late.

depends who you are. alot of people would class making the 2nd round as doing well, let alone reaching the final.
