Ryan Harrison and Lauren Davis won the United States Tennis Association’s Australian Open Wild-Card Playoff at the Racquet Club of the South in Norcross, Ga. Harrison, from Cortez, Fla., defeated Jack Sock, 7-6 (3), 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-4 to win his way into the first major of 2011. Harrison took the same route into the Australian Open last year but lost to Janko Tipsarevic in the first round of the main draw of the tournament. Davis, a 17-year-old from Gates Mills, Ohio, is the reigning U.S. Open Junior champ. She defeated CoCo Vandeweghe, 6-2, 6-2, to earn her spot in Australia.
