Andrew Harris is set for his first grand slam main draw after he was handed a Wildcard for the Australian Open.
Harris enjoyed a breakout 2019, taking advantage of largely injury-free run for the first time in his career to climb inside the world’s top 150.
The 25-year-old Victorian began his year at the Apis Canberra International, which was relocated to Bendigo, where he was beaten by Russian Evgeny Donskoy in the second round.
Harris, who fell just short of the Wimbledon main draw last year after a strong qualifying run, said he was delighted to play at his home grand slam for the first time.
“I’m so excited to play in main draw,” Harris said. “I grew up dreaming of playing at Melbourne Park and it means so much to finally have that opportunity.
“I am extremely grateful to Tennis Australia and can’t wait for next week.”
