Vandeweghe and Harrison earn wildcards to Aussie Open.

CoCo Vandeweghe, the niece of New Jersey Nets GM and coach Kiki Vandeweghe, and Ryan Harrison have earned spots in the main draw of the 2010 Australian Open.

Vandeweghe, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., and Harrison, of Bradenton, Fla., won U.S. Tennis Association wild-card playoffs in Atlanta.

Vandeweghe, who turned 18 Sunday, beat Christina McHale of Englewood Cliffs, N.J., 7-6 (2), 0-6, 6-3.

The 17-year-old Harrison defeated Jesse Levine of Boca Raton, Fla., 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 and will make his Grand Slam singles main draw debut in Australia in January.

The finals were played Monday.

The USTA and Tennis Australia have a reciprocal agreement to trade wild cards for their Grand Slam tournaments.
