Ottawa's Jesse Levine will play in the main draw in singles and doubles at Wimbledon next week.

Levine and partner Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver beat Dustin Brown of Germany and Rameez Junaid of Austria 6-4, 6-4 Wednesday to advance into the main draw of the Grand Slam.

Levine automatically gains entry into the main draw due to his singles ranking -- No. 112 in the world.

"Pretty pumped to play singles at doubles at this beautiful venue!! Grass court perfection," Levine tweeted.

Levine, 25, started representing Canada at the beginning of the year after beginning his pro career under the American flag.
