Former St. Paul Tournament Player Madison Brengle Receives Wild Card Entry Into 2007 Australian Open
Madison Brengle, who played in the 2005 Boston Scientific Women's Pro Tennis Classic in St. Paul, received a wildcard into the 2007 Australian Open as part of a reciprocal agreement with Tennis Australia.
Brengle, from Dover, Del., earned her entry into the Australian Open by winning an eight-player event at the USTA Player Development Headquarters in Key Biscayne, Fla., last week. In Key Biscayne, the USTA invited a group of eight American players, age 22 or younger, to compete for the women’s wild card. Brengle defeated Jessica Kirkland in the final. Other players who participated in the tournament were Lauren Albanese, Julia Cohen, Mary Gambale, Carly Gullickson, Ahsha Rolle and Ashley Weinhold. Albanese and Rolle have both competed in the St. Paul circuit event in the past two years.
The 16-year-old Brengle is currently ranked No. 498 in the world and won her first pro singles title at the $10,000 USTA Pro Circuit event in Baltimore last year as a qualifier. Earlier this month, Brengle reached the Girls’ 18-and-under semifinals of the Orange Bowl International. When Brengle played the St. Paul event as a 14-year old, she lost in the first round to another up-and-coming American player Alexandra Mueller 6-2, 6-3.
