2005 May 17 - R.Garros: Bogdanovic wins qualifier
Alex Bogdanovic defeated German Simon Greul 6-4 3-6 6-4 in his Roland Garros opening round qualification match.
This victory sets up a tricky second round encounter with Frenchman Marc Gicquel who is more experienced on clay.
But the 20-year-old will need to negitiate his equally ranked opponent in order to keep his hopes alive of claiming
one of the 16 qualifier slots.
Alex has never reached the Roland Garros main draw but he is no stranger to qualifying for Grand Slams. Although
handed wildcards to Wimbledon, he impressed by qualifying for the US Open main draw in 2004.
The tournament starts on Monday 23 May.
