Aleksandra Wozniak punched her ticket to the Wimbledon main draw Thursday.

The 26-year-old from Blainville, Que., won a third qualifying match, 6-4, 6-3, against American Melanie Oudin.

Having most nearly all of last season with a shoulder injury, the No. 118 ranked Wozniak will compete at the All England Club for the first time since the 2012 London Olympics.

Wozniak will join fellow Canadian women Eugenie Bouchard and Sharon Fichman in the main draw next week. Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil will represent Canada on the men’s side. Frank Dancevic failed to make it after losing 2-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 to Jimmy Wang of Taiwan in the third round of qualifying.

Pospisil lost his Topshelf Open quarterfinal match Thursday, losing 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5), 6-4 to Benjamin Becker of Germany.
