Keys, Levine Earn Main Draw Wild Cards to Australian Open

Madison Keys and Jesse Levine won main draw wild cards in to next month's Australian Open today at the Racquet Club of the South in Norcross, Georgia.

The sixth-seeded Keys, who also won the US Open wild card tournament back in August, beat No. 5 seed Gail Brodsky 6-3, 6-4, while No. 2 seed Levine streaked past No. 4 seed Robby Ginepri 6-0, 6-2, 6-1.

At 16, Keys will not be the youngest player in the draw however, as Australia's Ashleigh Barty, just 15, won a similar tournament last week in Australia.
