Former New Zealand tennis player Sacha Jones has received the ultimate prize just over 12 months after switching her allegiance to Australia.

The world number 173 has been awarded one of the two final women's wildcards into the main draw for the Australian Open.

Jones said she is excited to be making her grand slam debut at the tournament and that it is a dream come true.
