Wimbledon 2010: Alex Bogdanovic hit by wildcard blow

Bogdanovic is still without a singles win at Wimbledon

Alex Bogdanovic's run of Wimbledon wildcard entries looks to be over after his eight previous first-round defeats.

The British number two, currently 166th in the world rankings, was not among the six entries handed out on Monday though he could qualify at Roehampton.

There are still three men's wildcards to be decided, but Bogdanovic admitted last year: "I probably won't get another one, and that's fair enough."

Laura Robson, 16, is one of four British women given wildcards.

The 2008 Wimbledon girls' champion is joined by Katie O'Brien, Melanie South and Heather Watson - the 2009 US Open girls' winner.

Robson received her first wildcard last year and put up a brave battle before losing in three sets to former world number five Daniela Hantuchova in the opening round.


Britain's Jamie Baker, 254th in the ATP rankings, gets a place in the men's singles draw along with Russians Teimuraz Gabashvili and Andrey Kuznetsov, Nicolas Kiefer of Germany and Japan's Kei Nishikori.

Three more men's wildcards and four women's will be announced in the build-up to the third Grand Slam tournament of the season, which runs from 21 June to 4 July.

Three British pairings get men's doubles wildcards - Jamie Murray and Jonathan Marray, Josh Goodall and Jamie Delgado, and Chris Eaton and Dominic Inglot.

In the ladies' doubles, Robson gains entry with partner Sally Peers, and there are also wild cards for GB duos Anne Keothavong and South, and Naomi Cavaday and Anna Smith.
