Aussies in action: Rogowska shoots for main draw
Aussie No.3 Olivia Rogowska will attempt to become the fourth Aussie woman in the main draw at Roland Garros when she plays her final-round qualifying match on Saturday.
Aussie No.3 Olivia Rogowska will attempt to join compatriots Sam Stosur, Casey Dellacqua and Ash Barty in the main draw at Roland Garros when she plays her final-round qualifying match on Saturday.
A rain-plagued week in the French capital has pushed the bulk of final round women’s matches to a fifth day, although three managed to be completed late on Friday.
Rogowska, the 16th seed in qualifying, faces Georgian Sofia Shapatava for a main draw berth.
It would be the Victorian’s second appearance in the main draw of the claycourt Grand Slam; she reached the second round in 2009.
She is the only Australian female alive in qualifying after Jarmila Gajdosova fell in her second round match in three sets on Friday.
Rogowska’s match starts at 10 am Paris time (6 pm EST).
