Teenager Laura Robson was among five Britons given wildcards for Wimbledon - but there was no room for men's number two Alex Bogdanovic.
Robson, 16, was the 2008 girls champion at the All England Club and will be joined by Katie O’Brien, Melanie South and reigning US Open girls champion Heather Watson.
The Australian-born Robson (pictured) courted controversy in a glossy magazine interview this month, where she accused fellow women's tour professionals of being promiscuous, for which she later apologised.
For the men, British number three Jamie Baker was granted entry ahead of world number 166 Bogdanovic, who has received eight previous wildcards for the tournament but is yet to win a match.
Baker will be joined by Germany’s Nicolas Kiefer (ranked 181st) and Japan’s Kei Nishikori (201st).
Russian duo Teimuraz Gabashvili and 2009 Wimbledon junior champion Andrey Kuznetsov were also given wildcards.
Three places in the men's singles and four places in the women's are still to be announced.
