Bernard Tomic in the running for a wildcard, Nick Kyrgios return, Rafael Nadal, latest news

[Australian Open boss Craig Tiley has indicated that controversial former star Bernard Tomic may not receive a wildcard entry into the tournament, despite his rapid rise in the rankings. Tomic, now 31, has climbed to World No. 278 after a significant drop in his ranking last year and has been quietly working his way up the ranks by competing in the Challenger circuit. However, Tiley has not made any guarantees about Tomic’s participation in the tournament’s qualifying draw.

Meanwhile, there is uncertainty surrounding the potential participation of another Australian player, Nick Kyrgios, due to a knee injury. Tiley mentioned that it is too early to confirm whether Kyrgios will be able to make a comeback and compete in the Australian Open in January.

Tomic, a former Australian and US Open juniors champion, has been focusing on the Challenger circuit and recently reached the quarter-finals of the Brasilia Challenger. Despite his improved ranking, he has only participated in the main draw of the Australian Open twice since 2018.

Overall, Tiley’s comments suggest that Tomic may not receive a wildcard entry into the Australian Open, and it remains unclear whether Kyrgios will be able to compete due to his knee injury. This creates uncertainty around the participation of these two Australian players in the upcoming tournament.
