The qualifying rounds are now complete in Paris and the stage is set for the second Grand Slam event of the tennis season with six Canadians competing in the main draw at Roland-Garros.
Heidi El Tabakh was the only Canadian remaining in the final round of qualifying and she earned her spot in the main draw with a 6-7(5), 6-4 et 6-2 win over Camila Giorgi of Italy. El Tabakh is into the Roland-Garros main draw for the second time in her career where she joins her five compatriots who earned direct entry into the singles draws: Frank Dancevic, StÃ©phanie Dubois, Vasek Pospisil, Milos Raonic and Aleksandra Wozniak. This marks the first time since 1990 that six Canadians have been in the main draw at Roland-Garros. The official draw ceremony was conducted on Friday morning and first round matches will begin on Sunday.
