Vukic qualifies for Roland Garros
A Grand Slam debut is the reward for Australian Aleksandar Vukic after winning three qualifying matches in Paris this week.
Aleksandar Vukic will make his Grand Slam debut at Roland Garros after earning his place through qualifying.
The 24-year-old from Sydney secured a main draw berth with a 6-3 3-6 6-3 victory over Chinese Taipai’s Jason Jung in the final qualifying round.
The world No.192-ranked Vukic, who saved two match points in an opening round victory earlier this week, hit 40 winners in the one hour, 58 minute battle against Jung.
Vukic becomes the sixth Australian in the men’s singles draw, joining direct entrants Alex de Minaur, John Millman, Jordan Thompson, James Duckworth and Alexei Popyrin.
However, Marc Polmans’ bid to qualify ended in a final-round loss to Brit Liam Broady. The No.206-ranked Broady posted a 7-6(5) 6-4 victory over the No.12-seeded Polmans.
Astra Sharma is through to the final round in the women’s singles qualifying draw, advancing with a 6-4 6-4 win over Japan’s Yuki Naito.
The ninth-seeded Sharma is the last Australian woman left in the draw, with former world No.2-ranked Russian Vera Zvonareva eliminating Arina Rodionova in second-round action.
The No.134-ranked Sharma faces Italian Martina Trevisan in the final round.
