Kyrgios, Tomic fare well in Roland Garros draw
Aussie men's seeds Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic landed in favourable positions in the Roland Garros draw, while 21st seed Sam Stosur faces a tough path.
Nick Kyrgios could face a third-round clash with French star Richard Gasquet after earning a favourable French Open draw.
The 17th seed will take on Italy’s world No.124 Marco Cecchinato in the first round where victory would set up a clash with a qualifier in the second, before potentially resuming his rivalry with ninth seed Gasquet.
Australia’s top-ranked female Samantha Stosur will face dangerous floater Misaki Doi first up.
Should she progress past the world No.38, Stosur faces a potential third-round clash with 11th seed Lucie Safarova and fourth-round match-up with sixth seed Simona Halep.
Bernard Tomic drew American comeback kid Brian Baker, and wouldn’t face a top-10 seed until a potential quarterfinal with world No.1 Novak Djokovic.
Meanwhile, Sam Groth faces the enormous task of nine-time champion Rafael Nadal, while John Millman takes on 16th seed John Isner.
The news was better for wildcard Jordan Thompson, who has a qualifier first up.
Daria Gavrilova will take on Colombian world No.98 Mariana Duque-Marino in her first match, while wildcard Arina Rodionova is up against impressive Croatian teenager Ana Konjuh.
