Wild Card

By

Definition: A wild card is a special admission (or a player who gets one) into a tournament draw despite lacking the standard qualifications. Most often, a wild card is a rising star, local favorite, or former champion whose current ranking wouldn't merit entry. Wild cards can be granted into the main draw or into the qualifying tournament.
