US Open Stats Corner: Wildcard Runs
Beatrice Capra

NEW YORK, NY, USA - American 18-year-old Beatrice Capra has opened eyes with her performance so far at this year's US Open. She had to win a US Open wildcard play-off tournament in Boca Raton last month just to earn a spot in the main draw at Flushing Meadows, and now she finds herself in the third round against three-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova.

Capra, ranked No.371, is the lowest-ranked player to reach the third round here since No.1102-ranked Bea Bealik did so in 2002 (not counting unranked Kim Clijsters' title run last year). So which wildcard entrants have had the best results in US Open history?

Player Year Result
Kim Clijsters 2009 Champion
Severine Beltrame 2008 R16
Serena Williams 2006 R16
Martina Hingis 2002 R16
