Jaimee Fourlis books a spot at this year’s Wimbledon

·

Jaimee Fourlis is one of six emerging Australian players who have qualified for this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

Fourlis had to stave off match points in her first-round qualifying match, but had no such troubles in the second qualifier, beating France’s Jessika Ponchet 6-4 6-4 to cap her career-best season.

She joins Jason Kubler, Max Purcell, Zoe Hives, Astra Sharma and Maddison Inglis at the tournament after they also booked their spots in qualifying matches.

Tennis players such as Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios earned direct entry to the men’s singles draw.

The singles draws will be conducted on Friday night (AEST time) and matches will begin on Monday.
