Australian Open - Main Draw Wildcard Entries
 < 2011 2013 > 

The 2012 Australian Open Wildcard Playoffs and Entries are a group of events and internal selections to choose the 8 men and women wildcard entries for the 2012 Australian Open. Tennis Australia will award eight wildcards for the men's and women's professional singles competitions. Former Australian Grand Slam champions, Pat Rafter and Todd Woodbridge will help to select the four discretionary wildcards in the men's draw. In an agreement with the United States Tennis Association, Tennis Australia will give one man and one woman from the United States a wildcard into the Australian Open.[1][2] Tennis Australia also has a similar agreement with the French Tennis Federation. The Australian Open is promoted as "the Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific"; one male and one female player from this geographical area will be awarded a wildcard. The final wildcard will be awarded to the winner of the Australian Open wildcard playoff, a tournament between Australian players, who do not receive direct entry into the draw.[3] Tennis Australia may also decide to give doubles wildcards to Asian participants, based on need and availability.
