Sachia Vickery earned a French Open singles main draw wild card by finishing first in the women’s Roland Garros Wild Card Challenge. The 28-year-old Floridian earned 130 points from her performances at the clay-court WTA 500 events in Charleston, Stuttgart and the 1000 in Madrid.

Vickery is set to make her first main draw appearance at the French Open since 2018, the year she reached her career-high ranking of No. 73.

The final standings are below, along with each player’s current ranking in parenthesis.

Women’s Standings — Final

1. Sachia Vickery (127) — 130
2. Louisa Chirico (222) — 97
3. Katie Volynets (109) — 86

Men’s Standings — Final

1. Nicolas Moreno de Alboran (138) — 75
2. Mitchell Krueger (239) — 63
3. Michael Mmoh (114) — 50

The Challenge utilized clay-court professional tournaments to award an American man and woman a main draw wild card into the French Open, as the USTA and FFT have a reciprocal agreement in which main draw wild cards for the 2024 French Open and US Open will be exchanged.

Both the men’s and women’s wild cards are awarded to the Americans with the most ranking points earned at a maximum of three clay-court tournaments during a five-week window for the women and a four-week window for the men. All red-clay and Har-Tru events at the 35 level and above for the women and the 25 level and above for the men, including WTA and ATP Tour events, will be included in the Challenge.

Americans who otherwise earn direct entry into the French Open, or those who enter with a protected ranking, are not eligible. Should the player with the highest number of challenge points earn direct entry into the French Open, the wild card will go to the next eligible American in the Challenge points standings.

The USTA utilizes this Challenge format to award wild cards into the Australian, French and US Opens. Previous Americans to earn wild cards into the French Open via the Challenge and how far they advanced at Roland Garros include:
