Singles Draws are out, interesting note: Only one Karolina Pliskova, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will be in QF and Ostapenko who is defending champion will probably meet Azarenka in second round :yikes:

Bottom half of men's draw has more exciting names. All are there: Zverev, Thiem, Nishikori, Djokovic, Wawrinka

I can't believe it. Duck-hee Lee had break points for 5-2 in the third, than a match point on Munar's serve at 5-3, and of course he got broken when serving for the match and first ever Grand Slam main draw match -.- I hope he wins somehow now. Munar is good on clay.

Today Rebecca Šramková will fight for her first ever RG and only second ever GS after the Australian Open 1st round last year. That would be awesome to have 6 girls in the MD

 

Spoiler

 

Go Rebecca ! :cheer:

Have to be honest, didn't expect him to reach final q-round at all, but.. once you get there and have such opportunity to win.. oh boy :cry: At least this result is encouraging cause Lee has been performing quite poorly lately.

 

Spaniards and clay though :rolleyes: 

 

Happy to see :NOR Casper Ruud in main draw though! Finally waking up after last years performances :clap: 

 

Let see if Safwat can win his match for first GS main draw. Will it be the first one for him @thepharoah ?

Yes, Andreozzi was the favorite before the match...

It's been a long time. I haven't paid much attention, but is Youssef Hossam someone who can break that "record"? If I remember well he is born in 1998 so plenty of time ahead of him.
