FALCONI AWARDED WILD CARD AT BNP PARIBAS OPEN

Agent Atleta client Irina Falconi has been granted a main draw wild card at the 2017 BNP Paribas Open.  First-year Tournament Director Tommy Haas gave Falconi the nod, perhaps appreciating the difficulties of returning to action on the tour following a major injury.  

Falconi suffered a season-ending toe injury after the U.S. Open last fall, forcing the American to end her season prematurely.  Prior to the injury, Falconi had been enjoying a stellar season in which she reached a career-high ranking No. 63, and captured her first career WTA title in Bogota.  

Haas has reached legendary status for his ability to overcome severe injuries and return to top form, a feat he achieved on multiple occasions throughout his prolific career.

Despite missing the final three months of the 2017 Tour Calendar, Falconi managed to finish inside the Top 100 for the second consecutive year, the third such finish of her career.  

"I am grateful to Mr. Haas for the Wild Card," said Falconi.  "The BNP Paribas Open is easily one of the best events on tour, and I am elated to be able to compete in the main draw."
