POLMANS, QUALIFY FOR WIMBLEDON

Two Australian men - Marc Polmans and Chris O'Connell - have qualified to compete at Wimbledon 2021

 

 

The number of Australians competing in the gentlemen’s singles draw at Wimbledon 2021 has been bolstered to nine, with Marc Polmans and Chris O’Connell both earning spots as qualifiers.

They join direct acceptances Alex de Minaur, John Millman, Nick Kyrgios, Alexei Popyrin, Jordan Thompson, James Duckworth and wildcard Alex Bolt as contenders at the prestigious grass-court Grand Slam, which begins next week.

Polmans secured his Wimbledon main draw debut with a hard-fought 6-3 3-6 7-6(2) 3-6 11-9 victory against Indian Ramkumar Ramanathan in the final qualifying round. The 24-year-old Australian hit 75 winners and just 20 unforced errors in the three-hour and 30-minute battle. It marks the first time the world No.154 has qualified at a Grand Slam tournament.
