Yanina Wickmayer offered ASB Classic wildcard
Now that her ban is suspended, Yanina Wickmayer has been offered wildcard entry to the ASB Classic in Auckland.
Brenda Perry, tournament director for the US$220,000 ASB Classic which runs from January 4 to 9, said she had offered Wickmayer a wildcard.
“We’ve confirmed that if she’s allowed to play we’re offering her the wildcard,” Perry said. “As our entries have closed the only way she could enter would be via wildcard, and the indication is she wants to play and now we just have to wait for officials to confirm she is allowed to.”
A spokesperson for Wickmayer said after the court’s ruling she is hoping for wildcard entry to the Australian Open in January as entries have now closed.
