Not only have the draw Gods given us an all Aussie encounter in the first round at Roland Garros, but they placed the Aussies pretty much in the same half of the draw. The result of this is that 10 of Australia’s 12 entrants in the main draw will play today.
In fact, I think we may be able to annexe Roland Garros as a part of Australis today!
So, here’s where everyone is playing.
Sam Groth (AUS) v Pablo Cuevas
Sam Stosur (AUS) v Madison Brengle
Denis Istomin v Nick Kyrgios (AUS)
Amandine Hesse v Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS)
Luca Vanni v Bernard Tomic (AUS)
Casey Dellacqua (AUS) v Ajla Tomljanovic (AUS)
Joanna Larsson v Daria Gavrilova (AUS)
Marinko Matosevic (AUS) v Thomas Belluci
Nikoloz Basilashvili v Thanasi Kokkinakis (AUS)
James Duckworth will play his opener tomorrow.
Sadly, Olivia Rogowska who was the only Aussie playing yesterday lost to Slovakia’s Magdalena Rybarikova 6-0, 5-7, 2-6.
