USTA COMPETITIVE PATHWAY MERIT-BASED WILD CARDS – 2020 - SINGLES WINNERS
The USTA Competitive Pathway Merit-Based Wild Card System
was created to enhance and accelerate player progression using earned
advancement opportunities and merit-based wild card linkages from the juniors,
collegiate and National Open event pathways; into professional tennis.
After the completion of this event, every player who earns a
wild card must send an email to email@example.com with their tournament
preference within 3 days. USTAPD will respond to this email & confirm
the earned wild card. USTAPD will make every effort to grant a player's
first preference, but it is not guaranteed. Once the earned wild card is
communicated to the player, the player is still required to complete the Wild
Card Request Form by going to this page: https://usta.fairplayams.com/AMS/public/sites/tennis/usta/ustaRequestWildcard.aspx
Please be aware that due to the time of the year, some
designated events are listed in 2021 based on the 2020 Competitive Pathway
Calendar. These events are subject to change based on the final 2021
Competitive Pathway Calendar released in the 4th quarter of 2020. USTAPD will
determine the designation of these earned wild cards.
If a player has earned a wild card through the “USTA
COMPETITIVE PATHWAY WILD CARD LINKAGE” or “USTA 18’s NATIONAL STANDINGS LIST
INCENTIVES”, they must email firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 days to arrange. These
earned wild cards must be used within nine months of being earned.
If the USTA or USTAPD finds that wild cards are being sold
or bartered, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken. All tournaments
& tournament dates listed below are subject to change & USTAPD has
final say in all wild card decisions.
