Changes to wildcard program
Australia's women players have been advised of a change to Tennis Australia's Australian Open wildcard program this year. Previously, two main draw (singles) wildcards were awarded to the best performed Australian on the QLD and SA Challenger circuits at the end of the year. This year only one AO main draw (singles) wildcard will go to the best performed Australian in singles over the combined QLD and SA Challengers.
The second wildcard will be go the winner of a Playoff to be conducted during the AO Training Camp at Melbourne Park, 8-20th Dec 2003. The playoff will consist of 16 players (accepted on ranking, plus wildcards but excluding those directly into the AO singles Main Draw).
What do you think?
Inspiration is for amateurs
