Gauff is currently No. 140 in the WTA rankings.

But according to the WTA, the U.S. Open - which, as a Grand Slam tournament, is not overseen by the WTA or ATP tours - essentially can choose to ignore the eligibility rule and offer Gauff a wild card.

Among the other players receiving wild cards from the U.S. Tennis Association on Tuesday for the women's field at Flushing Meadows were 2011 U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur - an Australian who was granted that country's reciprocal berth in the field - and 17-year-old Caty McNally, an American who won the doubles title with Gauff and reached the singles semifinals at the Citi Open in Washington this month.
