Brengle gets Australian Open wild card

Madison Brengle has defeated Alexa Glatch, 6-3, 6-4, to win a wild card in this year's Australian Open.

All wild cards are obtained through competition, i.e., none is being given to a player in the usual wild card sense. I have a problem with the Australian Open continuing to call the spot a "wild card" if it is not obtained in the manner that seems quite obvious a wild card should be obtained. As far as I am concerned, there are no wild cards now at the Australian Open.

The Australian Open still does give out wildcards to players - not just the ones they trade with the USTA and the French federeation- to players that wouldn't otherwise qualify . In 2008 Rob Smeets and Brydan Klein - to name a couple of recipients- got wildcards. They didn't win them in the wildcard play-off, they were given them by Tennis Australia.

Will you be correcting your mistake in print?
