LOCAL ROUNDUP: Dover’s Brengle late addition to US Open field

Madison Brengle will be playing in the U.S. Open after all.

Brengle was announced as a late addition to the field on Sunday after Luksika Kumkhum withdrew due to travel difficulties.

Brengle, a 28-year-old Dover native, took Kumkhum’s spot as the first lucky loser from last week’s qualifying tournament. Brengle fell in the final round of qualifying to Anna Kalinskaya on Friday.

Brengle faces fellow American Sofia Kenin in her first round matchup today at 4:15 p.m. She has now made 17 straight Grand Slam events.

Kumkhum, of Thailand, was competing in the Asian Games in Indonesia this week and could not make it to New York in time.
