Danai Udomchoke has been granted a wildcard into the Thailand Open starting Sunday 21 September. And ensuring the Thailand Open will be something of a family affair for the Djokovics, world #3 Novak’s younger brother Marko has also been granted a wildcard into the USD576,000 event.
Thailand’s #1 player Danai is steadily climbing back up the ATP rankings after dropping out of the top 200 earlier in the year. He is currently ranked 155. Danai has shown improved form in the last two months reaching the finals of two Challenger events in Canada and the semi finals in New Delhi. With the Thai fans cheering him on, he will be confident of playing some great tennis at the Thailand Open.
Seventeen-year-old Marko hopes to emulate his elder brother’s success in world tennis and a Thailand Open wildcard just might be his lucky charm. Novak received a wildcard into the event in 2004 for only his third ATP Tour event and has never looked back. Marko competed in the Australian Open qualifying at the beginning of the year but this will be his first main draw appearance and tennis observers are expecting big things from the “baby Djoker”.
One further wildcard recipient will be announced prior to the tournament.
