this is from ZOO tennis... after reading ,I'm shaking my head ,like this can't be true... USTA should be ashamed of themselves for this... I know those two girls are there in New York and were given credentials for the USO, practicing there for the whole week ,they were told this yesterday .... Unfortunate news out of New York today, with the word that Sabrina Santamaria and Kaitlyn Christian, the USC pair who won all three collegiate majors this year, including the NCAA title, did not receive a wild card into the women's doubles at the US Open. Santamaria and Christian, not knowing they needed to apply to the USTA for a wild card, didn't, and the oversight wasn't noted by anyone at USTA Player Development when the time came for deciding US Open wild cards. Men's NCAA champions Jarmere Jenkins and Mac Styslinger of Virginia did receive a wild card into the US Open men's doubles. It's hoped that both Santamaria and Christian will receive wild cards into the mixed doubles draw.
