Aleksandra Wozniak, Frank Dancevic into Wimbledon main draw
Draw for grass court Grand Slam takes place Friday
Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak will be back in the main draw at Wimbledon.
The Blainville, Que. native got through qualifying on Thursday with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over American Melanie Oudin.
Wozniak will make her seventh appearance in the Wimbledon singles draw, making a return after being out last year due to a shoulder injury.
"This match was important for me psychologically," Wozniak said in a Tennis Canada release. "I played well and I did what I had to do to qualify for Wimbledon. It feels good to play a lot of matches, it helps to polish my game."
Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., was unable to get into the men's draw through result, losing to Jimmy Wang 6-2, 1-6, 2-6, 4-6.
However, Dancevic was one of the so-called 'lucky losers' drawn in to Wimbledon.
Off the court, Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver saw his seeding change due to injury.
The withdrawal of the 25th-seeded clay-court specialist Nicolas Almagro of Spain means Pospisil has been promoted to the No. 31 seed and Russia's Dmitry Tursunov elevated into the seedings at 32.
Wimbledon organizers take players' grass-court records into account when assigning seedings rather than working purely off rankings.
The draw for the Grand Slam tournament will take place on Friday, with the event starting on Monday.
Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., is seeded eighth on the men's side, with Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., 13th in the women's draw.
Toronto's Sharon Fichman is also in the women's draw.
