    With five wildcards up his sleeve tournament director Karl Budge is optimistic he can snare the likes of a Dominic Thiem or a Kei Nishikori for next month's ASB men's Classic in Auckland


    Five top 20 ranked players have been confirmed in the list of 17 direct acceptances into the main draw.
