Alternates (partial list)
1. Monfils, Gael FRA 66
Murray, Andrew GBR 205
I don't think they've announced anything for the USO Wildcards yet (specially since the entry list isn't even closed and there are some Americans who I would think would get a WC over Andy Murray), so maybe he just entered the New Haven alt list to play it safe so that he can get some matches in case he gets a WC but he can easily pull out if he decides to play USO qualiespggtips2 wrote:If he's in the alternates list, presumably he must have a WC into the US Open Main Draw either that or he's not playing US Open qualies as he certainly has a high enough entry ranking to make US Open qualies draw.
I hadn't thought about that possibility until now, but it would be unusual for the USTA to give a wild card to a non-American. Except for the reciprocal arrangement between the Australians & the French, it's rare for any of the slams to give a wild card to a non-countryman. (Wimbledon has awarded a few to former champions/finalists like Ivanesicvic & Phillippoussis & gave one to half-British James Blake this year, but those are rare exceptions).

I have a question and I think we've discussed this before, so forgive me. If a player signs in for the New Haven qualies, plays, then loses before making the main draw, can that same player still play in the USO qualies two days later? (Yes, I have a specific player in mind, who may be a little too confident that he's getting a main draw WC when everyone else in the world seems to think he's 'too old').
It does seem odd considering the number of direct entrants (& the fact that the other 48 main draw events in the U.S. have been using 32 qualifying draws--with four qualifiers--this year).PatatRiek wrote:according to this draw 8 qualifiers are going to the main draw is this correct?
