Hewitt, Harrison, Young get US Open wild cards
NEW YORK (AP)
Former champ Lleyton Hewitt, Robby Ginepri, Ryan Harrison and Donald Young are among the seven players awarded wild cards into the US Open men's draw.
The U.S. Tennis Association said Wednesday that the eighth berth would be given to the winner of an eight-player tournament this week in College Park, Md. Steve Johnson, Jack Sock and Julien Benneteau also received wild cards.
The 30-year-old Hewitt won the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon titles but is ranked 165th after a series of injuries.
Young had to apologize to the USTA in April after he posted an obscenity-laced message on Twitter criticizing the organization for not automatically giving him its wild card into the French Open.
