Melbourne VIC, Australia, 9 February 2015 |

A large contingent of Aussies will take to the courts this week at the ATP event in Memphis and the WTA tournament in Pattaya City, Thailand.

Following the Australian Open and a week of Fed Cup play on the women’s side, normal tour duties resume for most players, and many will fly the Aussie flag.

At the ATP 250 Memphis Open, Bernard Tomic, Sam Groth and Marinko Matosevic have all landed in the bottom half of the draw.

Tomic will open with a match against Dutchman Igor Sijsling, with the winner dealt a second-round meeting with fourth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov.

Groth will take on Yen-Hsun Lu in his first round match, while Matosevic faces Germany’s Dustin Brown.

Attempting to join the Aussie trio in the main draw is Thanasi Kokkinakis, who has already come through two rounds of qualifying and now stands one win away from a berth in the main event.

His final-round qualifying opponent is Romania’s Victor Hanescu.

In Pattaya City, Jarmila Gajdosova will look to carry on her impressive play from Australia’s Fed Cup tie against Germany; as the No.6 seed she will take on a qualifier in her first round match.

In the second round she could face compatriot and frequent doubles partner Ajla Tomljanovic, should the Croatian-born player also get past a qualifier in her first assignment in Thailand.

Anastasia Rodionova is attempting to join them; the Aussie veteran upset top seed Alexandra Panova in the first round of qualifying, and now stands one win away from the main draw.
