2019 runner-up Brayden Schnur receives wildcard into New York Open

Canadian tennis player Brayden Schnur, 24, will return to the New York Open this year and make back-to-back appearances at the event after being awarded a wildcard into the event. Schnur, ranked at No. 118 in the world, put up a sensational run at the New York Open last year as he made his maiden ATP final at the tournament as a qualifier.

Back then, 24-year-old fell just short of finishing his dream New York run with a title as home favorite Reilly Opelka edged out the Canadian 6-1 6-7 (7) 7-6 (7) in a tight final. Since making the New York final, former world No.

92 Schnur has struggled to continue performing at a high level as he hasn't managed to become a regular participant of the ATP level events. However, the 24-year-old Canadian will certainly enter New York inspired and extremely motivated to make another deep run at the event and potentially lift his maiden ATP title.

Meanwhile, college player Brian Shi was also awarded a wildcard into New York and he will make his debut at the ATP level next week.
