The initial game is almost over and the main game is about to begin.

It was an outstanding effort by Jason Kubler, who fought for three decisive wins through the qualifying tournament, including a straight set defeat to Pedro Susa in the third round.

Partaguler Sosa, a former top-100 player, and Max Parcel were responsible for the early exit from the qualifiers. Susa has almost made it to parcel form and current world rankings.

Similarly with our qualifying round, Alexander Vukic, who lost to Austrian Sebastian Offner, once ranked 126th in the world, who finished in the main draw.

Kubler’s victory means that the Australian men’s singles have seven main draw contestants – hopefully – to follow suit. With a good draw and the required amount of luck, Australia’s chances of winning are slim, but we are probably looking at at least one player in the 32nd round.

Speaking of the “fate of the draw”, it certainly wasn’t with Jordan Thompson, one of our current players is playing well and with the results of the third or fourth round at the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in the last three years.

In fact, even though he has made it to the second round three times at the Australian Open, he has never advanced, making it his least successful Grand Slam.

In Roland Garros, Thompson pulled No. 1 pick Rafael Nadal early and climbed the highest mountain among all the Aussies.

In contrast to the draw of one of our selected players Alex de Minaur. With only one position less than our two seeds in the qualifiers, De Minaur is playing with Frenchman Hugo Gaston, who is playing his best tennis at the moment and it will be a challenge, but he will play the daemon if he can overcome the Frenchman and the home crowd. A qualifier in the second round.

Australian wild card recipient Chris O’Connell will join hands with Slovenian Aljaz Beden, his five-year senior and former world ranking 43. Beden has a great record of performances in the last nine years at all Grand. The Slam event, including two third-round performances at Roland Garros, where O’Connell has only one first-round performance at the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open (and four Australian Open with only one second-round performance).

Alexei Poprin is another impressive young Australian who has done well in all four slams in recent years, but will have to stay in his best form to fight world number 52 Fabio Fognini. Although now 34 years old, the Italian from San Remo has been a quarter-finalist here before and also has two fourth-round results.

John Millman, who never made it to the first round in five attempts, also pulled Sebastian Corder, a pick player, the son of Peter Corder, who, unlike his sisters Jessica and Nellie, chose tennis as his career and is ranked 27th in Roland. Garros.

One of the most exciting players to return to his best form after an injury is Thanasi Kokinakis, who will play against Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain, but things will not be easy as the winner is likely to be the sixth-seeded, 19-year-old Carles of Spain in the second round.

James Duckworth will face 23-year-old Sweden Mikel Eimar, who, after three good results in the first three slams last year, has slipped slightly behind in the US and Australian Open.
