Brian Baker has earned a wild card for this month's French Open.
The USTA have handed the 27-year-old their wild card - which they receive under a reciprocal agreement with the French Tennis Federation - following his performances at recent claycourt Challenger torunaments in Florida and Georgia.
Baker, who was runner-up in the boys' singles at Roland Garros back in 2003, claimed more points at the events than his rivals. He won the latter event in Savannah.
Baker returned to the game last year after undergoing no fewer than five surgeries for a variety of injuries.
Arguably Baker's best result came in 2005 when he beat then-world number nine Gaston Gaudio at the US Open. He is currently ranked 214th in the world.
Meanwhile, Melanie Oudin is currently leading the race to claim the USTA's wild card for the women's draw following her weekend title triumph in Charlottesville, Virginia.
