U.S. Open wild cards announced

Kim Clijsters, as everyone knows, has been given a wild into the main draw of the U.S. Open. Here are the other seven players to get wild cards:

Gail Brodsky
Mallory Cecil
Alexa Glatch
Vania King
Christina McHale
Kristina Mladenovic
Olivia Rogowska

The following players have received wild cards into qualifying:

Sloane Stephens
Coco Vandeweghe
Kristie Ahn
Lauren Embree
Irina Falconi
Asia Muhammad
Alison Riske
Nicole Gibbs
Laura Robson

I'm a bit disappointed that Vandewegh and Stephens didn't get main draw wild cards. Vandewegh received one last year, and had the misfortune to draw Jelena Jankovic in the first round. She then went on to win the tournament in the junior division.
