Laura Robson will be entered into the main draw of the US Open in New York next month thanks to her protected ranking.

Players are able to enter eight tournaments based on the ranking they had before a long-term injury lay off.

Robson, 21, made her comeback from a wrist injury in June after having not competed since last year’s Australian Open.

British No2 Robson secured her first win in almost two years at a Challenger tournament in Canada on Thursday, beating Japan’s Naomi Osaka 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 at the Granby National Bank Challenger.

Robson lost in the first rounds at Eastbourne and Wimbledon on her comeback.

The US Open gets under way on 31 August in New York.
