Veteran Lleyton Hewitt and teenager Ashleigh Barty have been awarded wild cards for the French Open.
Tennis Australia, which has a reciprocal arrangement with the French Tennis Federation regarding wild cards for their Grand Slam events, announced their decision to hand Hewitt and Barty their chance on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old Hewitt, a former world number one, had foot surgery in February and has not played since. However, now training again in Europe he insists he is fighting fit and ready to play in his 12th French Open.
He said: "I'm looking forward to playing the French Open especially after missing it last year due to injury."
Despite having won Wimbledon and the US Open during his career, Hewitt has never been beyond the last eight in Paris.
At the other end of the age scale, 16-year-old Barty will play in just her second Slam having made her debut at this year's Australian Open.
"I'm thrilled to compete in the main draw of the French Open for the first time and test my game against the world's best," said the reigning Junior Wimbledon champion.
"Thank you to Tennis Australia for believing in me enough to give me this opportunity and I will do my best to make everyone proud."
