Wild card for Rendez-Vous winners: AITA

The junior players participating in the ongoing Rendez-Vous event got a new impetus with the All India Tennis Association (AITA) on Tuesday announcing that the winners of the event will be awarded wild cards for the upcoming Delhi Open (ATP Men’s USD 50,000 and ITF Women’s USD 25,000).

16 boys and girls are competing in the Rendez-Vous, a joint initiative of AITA and French Tennis Federation (FFT), the winners of which will compete with champions of similar events in Japan, South Korea, China and Brazil to earn a wild card into the junior French Open.
The finalist, on the other hand, will get a wild card for the qualifying event.

"This step is for furthering the cause of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) we have signed with FFT. Our association with them started with the aim of helping our junior players develop an all round game and get exposure. Taking forward the initiative, AITA has decided to award wild cards to winners of the Rendez-Vous A’ Roland Garros event," AITA President Anil Khanna said.

"We are committed to help our junior players in whichever way we can. Playing in Delhi Open will be a great opportunity for them to assess themselves at that level of international tennis."
