US Open wild-card challenge expands

The USTA’s French Open wild card challenge was limited to a series of ITF events on the women’s side.

But for the upcoming competition ahead of the US Open, at least they’ll be able to use a few WTA-level events to vie for the prize.


The five-week period begins July 9.

The selection of eligible events on the men’s side ranges from Winnipeg, to Kazakhstan, to China to the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

For the women, it’s mostly USTA Pro circuit events. But results from San Jose and Washington, D.C. will count.
