This time already.

SBS and Fox(Bein??) have the TV rights?? I might have to look into getting Fox cause I am missing too much tennis atm with my current set-up. Do they show much tennis during the week?

Bolt out. Kokkinakis lost the first set but now on the verge of winning the second set.
Kubler just out on court now.

Yeah, ESPN has the ATP rights where they show all the Masters 1000 and QF of the 500's onwards, a lot of the 250's have QF onwards coverage on Fox and BEIN shows a lot of WTA each week (even most days of the smaller ones) even if that coverage tends to be focused on one court. I think TennisTv (and the wta equivalent) is a far better and cheaper option as it allows you to select courts and has all tournaments apart from the majors.

For the French, I always go Europsort player (via a VPN) as again it gives you access to all courts as the Fox Sports coverage tends to be the crappy world feed which again only focuses on one court and I imagine SBS will be taking that same feed.

Also, Isabella Wallace got the WC for the women via a playoff. Alex De Minaur got the men's (he was only a few out anyways). James Duckworth got in via his protected ranking in the main draw and I believe it's the first match he has played since 1997, good to hear he's back playing.

Tennis tv is a good option and at a decent price considering they broadcast most ATP tournaments all the time.

No Fourlis to stop her this time. Still a surprise because her current ITF form is terrible (considering she favours clay). Has been struggling to get passed R1 of $25K events of which she's won 2 in the past.

Tomic won and Kokkinakis & Santalian lost. Would of like tthat been the other way around but just hope Thansai's knee is holding up...

Cabrera is the only one left in the women's, she plays her 2nd round tonight. Tomic's final round will be Friday.

They played a few weeks ago and while De Minaur fought hard Edmund eventually hit him off the court, I expect the same sadly.

Pretty tough draw for the Aussies, Millman got Sharapolov which was the one I was hoping would get a good draw but ah well, have to hope Denis comes out a bit erratic. Kyrgios got a qualifier and I guess there are good sign for his results in doubles in Lyon this week so maybe he's a chance to win a few matches. The rest I wasn't expecting wins regardless but Duckworth got Cilic in his first match back, incredibly tough ask but he should enjoy a big court. Ebden got Fabbaino which will be a straight sets loss and Thompson got a qualifier, he hasn't been playing a lot on clay so I don't expect anything there either.

Possible 2nd round match against Serena for Barty, had a reasonably toughish 1st round too, Stosur got Wickymayer. Gavilrova I have forgotten who she had and Wallace had a seed.
