Teen sensation Coco Gauff gets US Open wildcard

The teenage duo linked up again to win the women's doubles at Citi Open earlier this month.

The remaining two wildcards into the main draw were awarded to Americans Francesca Di Lorenzo, who reached the second round of the US Open a year ago as a qualifier, and Kristie Ahn, who earned her spot in her first US Open main draw since 2008 by winning the US Open Wild Card Challenge.

Gauff was one of the stars of the Wimbledon fortnight after she qualified for the tournament before beating idol Venus Williams in the first round.

Gauff past year won the girls' doubles at the US Open alongside Caty McNally, who has also been given a wildcard.

For the senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell doesn't have a whole lot of interest in governing. Democrats said that more than 250 mass shootings have occurred in the United States this year.

Other women's wildcards went to former USA collegiate champion Francesca Di Lorenzo and three-time Stanford University All-American and New Jersey native Kristie Ahn. Volynets is now at No.411 in the WTA Rankings.

Alongside these newcomers, the experience of Samantha Stosur was also rewarded with a wildcard into the US Open main draw.

Di Lorenzo, a 22-year-old from OH, is a past NCAA doubles champion now ranked 128th. The 35-year-old Aussie won the title in Flushing Meadows in 2011 and has reached the quarter-finals on two other occasions. Ahn, a 27-year-old from New Jersey, finished first in the USTA's wild-card challenge, while Volynets, a 17-year-old from California, won the 18s national championship.

Nine wild cards for qualifying were also awarded, including to five-time Grand Slam doubles champion Bethanie Mattek-Sands, 14-year-old Reese Brantmeier of Wisconsin, Vicky Duval, Shelby Rogers and Pan Am Games medalist Caroline Dolehide.
