Australian Open wildcards up for grabs
Australia's female players will be rewarded for strong performance on the Pro Tour with wildcards into the Australian Open main draw and qualifying.
For the second straight year, good form of the Pro Tour will translate into a trip to Melbourne Park for Australia’s best women.
An Australian Open main draw wildcard is the carrot for the best-performed Aussie woman at $50,000 events in Bendigo and Canberra.
In short, the Australian player who earns the most WTA ranking points across both events – provided they make the semifinals of at least one – will take their place in the main draw at Australian Open 2017.
A wildcard into Australian Open qualifying is the prize for the top performer across three $25,000 Pro Tour tournaments in Tweed Heads, Brisbane, Toowoomba and Cairns.
A main-draw doubles wildcard is also up for grabs for the Australian team who performs best in the doubles events in Bendigo and Canberra.
