Tomljanovic makes long-awaited return
Currently unranked, Ajla Tomljanovic will make her first competitive appearance in more than 13 months when she takes to the court in Acapulco.
Ajla Tomljanovic will make her return to tennis at this week’s WTA event in Acapulco after 13 months on the sidelines.
The Croatian-born Aussie last played a match in a first-round loss at Australian Open 2016, before undergoing shoulder surgery in March.
Currently unranked, she is using a protected ranking to enter the draw.
She opens against sixth seed Eugenie Bouchard in what will be their first meeting.
Tomljanovic reached a career-high ranking of No.47 in February 2015 and recorded her best Grand Slam result with a fourth-round run at Roland Garros in 2014.
