Sydney: Bernard TomicAustralia's Bernard Tomic has fallen back on a wildcard entry to make the rankings cut-off and defend his only ATP Tour title in Sydney in January.

Tomic's 51 ranking fell just outside the cut-off point of 49 for the men's field at the Sydney International from January 5-11.

But organisers said they issued Tomic their first wildcard this week, ensuring the 21-year-old can attempt to repeat his tournament victory from early this year, when he won through to beat South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the final.
