|Australian Open (2018)||Roland Garros (2018)||Wimbledon (2018)||US Open (2017)|
What does this mean for the Brits?
With a bumper crop of British women as wildcards in the main draw, and a couple of strong up and coming names in the men’s draw, the draws have been perhaps kinder to the more established names who certainly have the experience to go far.
Opponents are assumed on via their ranking/seeding for those Brits who are in the main draw as of their ranking.
