More wildcards were awarded by Tennis Australia on 28 December.
They went to five Australians and also included former world no. 1 Andy Murray.
India’s Sumit Nagal and China’s Wang Xiyu receive the Asia-Pacific wildcards.
Thanasi Kokkinakis (SA), Alex Bolt (SA) and Aleksandar Vukic (NSW) are among the latest Australian recipients, along with Arina Rodionova (Vic) and Destanee Aiava (Vic).
Kokkinakis is on the comeback trail, with the former world no.69 set to take part in his fifth main draw at Melbourne Park after missing the 2020 event due to glandular fever.
“I’m super happy and thankful to have gotten a wildcard into the AO,” said Kokkinakis.
“Shattered I couldn’t play this year due to illness, but I’m feeling great now and can’t wait to get out in front of the home crowd and have some fun.”
20-year-old Aiava will be competing in her fourth Australian Open however the Victorian missed out on competing at the 2020 event after bowing out in the third round of qualifying.
