Olivia Rogowska has been awarded a wildcard into next week’s Australian Open.
It will be the sixth consecutive home Grand Slam for the Australian after her first appearance in 2009.
Rogowska will be hoping to improve on her Australian Open record with a second round appearance in 2012 being her best result to date.
“I was really stoked to get the phone call, this week [Hobart] has been great preparation for next week,” she said
Rogowska enjoyed a first round win in Hobart on Monday, beating Romanian Alexandra Cadantu 7-6(5) 6-1.
“The girl I beat [Monday] was top 50 or 60, that will give me a bit of confidence for next week”.
The Australian Open starts on Monday, 13 January.
