Nick Kyrgios and Ashleigh Barty will receive wild cards into the French Open, Tennis Australia has announced.

The Australian teenagers will be playing at the French Open for the second time. Both reached the second round as wild cards last year.

As part of a reciprocal agreement with the French federation, Tennis Australia receives the right to award wild cards for both the men's and women's main draw at the French Open.

Barty, 18, is trying to make a breakthrough in singles after reaching three Grand Slam doubles finals last year. "I've played a lot more in big matches," she said. "The experience just accumulates and it's finally just coming together."

Kyrgios, 19, has won two straight challengers since coming back from an elbow injury, and trained with Roger Federer last week.
