Melanie Oudin receives wild card into Wimbledon

Sunday - 6/17/2012, 5:02pm  ET

LONDON (AP) - American Melanie Oudin has received a wild card into Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old was a quarterfinalist at the 2009 U.S. Open but has struggled to regain that form. On Sunday, she reached the final at the Aegon Classic.

Wimbledon officials announced Sunday that Grega Zemlja of Slovenia had received the final men's wild-card spot in the tournament, which starts June 25. Players already announced included former champion Lleyton Hewitt and Tommy Haas, who beat Roger Federer in the Halle final Sunday.

On the women's side, Ashleigh Barty of Australia was also added.
