Bernard Tomic qualifies for Roland Garros
Bernard Tomic continues resurgence, qualifying for the season's second Grand Slam without dropping a set.
Bernard Tomic has earned a place in the French Open main draw.
The 25-year-old from Queensland did not drop a set in qualifying, securing his main draw spot with a 7-6(5) 7-5 victory over Portugal’s Goncalo Oliveira in the final round tonight. Tomic hit 28 winners, including nine aces, to secure victory over his No.220-ranked opponent in 99 minutes.
Tomic boosts the number of Australian competitors in the French Open men’s singles main draw to seven, joining Nick Kyrgios, John Millman, Matthew Ebden, Jordan Thompson, James Duckworth and Alex De Minaur.
Tomic could potentially face Kyrgios or Thompson, both who have drawn qualifiers, in the first round. His opponent will be decided when all qualifying matches are completed.
It will be the No.208-ranked Tomic’s ninth main draw appearance in Paris. His best previous result is reaching the second round in 2012, 2015 and 2016.
