The upcoming Australian Open 2020 is set to see some choice and exciting performances, especially after former semi-finalist and the NCAA Singles Champions were awarded the wins in the 2020 Australian Open Wild Card challenges.
The previous semi-finalist from the US, Coco Vandeweghe won the wildcard entry into the Australian Open 2020 after she clinched the USTA Wild Card Challenge. In 2017, Vandeweghe’s winning streak was cut short when she was ousted in the final tour of the tournament in Melbourne. However, recovering her form quickly, Vandeweghe went on to win matches against three seeded players in the tournament on her way to the finals of the Oracle Challenger Series, held in November in Houston. Vandeweghe played impressively in the semi-final match against Stefanie Voegele. After beating Voegele 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 Vandeweghe gloriously secured her wildcard entry into the 2020 Australian Open.

Although several injuries plagued her last year, which resulted in Vandeweghe to miss out on the majority of the 2018-2019 season, she went on to prove her form by reaching the finals of two tournaments with a chance to compete in the main draw for the Australian Open 2020 tournament.
In addition, Marcos Giron, the 2014 NCAA Champion of UCLA managed to clinch the Houston Open title in 2019, thus ensuring himself a place as a wildcard entry into the 2020 Australian Open tournament. The former champion showed incredible performance by saving six match points against Ivo Karlovic. Apart from breezing past competitor Michael Mmoh, the win also boosted his ranking to 102 globally, which is the highlight of Giron’s tennis career to date.
Tennis fans from across the world are thrilled with anticipation to watch the performance of the two American wildcard entries into the Australian Open 2020.
