MEL SOUTH dumped fourth seed Sybille Bammer in straight sets to march into the DFS Classic third round in Birmingham.
The 22-year-old Brit No 4, from Surrey, scored a 6-3 7-5 win over the Austrian world No 28.
Her day got even better as she discovered she has been given a wildcard for Wimbledon — along with Elena Baltacha, Katie O’Brien and Naomi Cavaday.
South said: “I’ve got belief in myself.
“This year, I definitely want to be top 100 and go even higher. I have a lot to work on in my game.”
