    I am slightly disappointed that Jack Draper did not get a main draw wildcard. Especially when James Ward gets one nearly every year yet does not deliver. I am happy for Paul Jubb and Jay Clarke though.

    I'm quite surprised that Baggy has been given a MDWC ... and since they've still got 4 MDWCs places available who knows what might change?

    I am happy with Marcos Baghdatis getting a wildcard. I have never forgotten the way he behaved in a late running match again AM, He could have screwed things up for AM very easily, by slowing up, chucking a fake MTO in, and forced the match into the next day. However he behaved with integrity and in a rare sporting manner.

    He was also the only player to take a set off AM in London 2012.

    He is also an older statesman of the sport. Let him have his day. It might be his last at Wimbledon. Leyton Hewitt has benefited from a few.

    100% agree. WC should have gone to Jack Draper. 17 yrs old, exciting prospect for British tennis. Ludicrous imo to give it MB - I like him well enough, but his day is well past. (That he didn't sabotage things for Andy should just be considered normal/expected form).

    I'm glad that Andy Murray and Pierre-Hugues Herbert will be playing doubles at Wimbledon. I've always believed that Herbert is a very good player.
