Canadian in NYC gets wild card

Jack Mingjie Lin had a good junior career, well supported by Tennis Canada’s national training program. He reached the top 50 in the ITF rankings and made one junior Slam main draw, at the 2016 Australian Open.

But like most of his fellow NTC players, he went the college route – Ivy League at that – playing for Columbia.


A perk of being an East Coast college player is a tournament in December, whose prize is a wild card into the New York Open main draw.

Lin won it, and he’ll make his ATP debut against a qualifier Tuesday.
