I just marked up my brackets to size up how the wild cards, lucky losers and qualifiers are doing.
By my rough math, they are having a pretty great run this year. In the women’s draw, propelled by Ahsha Rolle, they’re 9-19 in matches and in the men’s, led by John Isner and Donald Young, they’re 8-15. (I didn’t count matches where two qualifiers played one another.)
Overall, not bad for rankings that range from 96 to 633.
