Taylah Preston, a 17-year-old from Perth, is one of this week’s standout Australian performers.
All eyes are on Roland Garros as the second Grand Slam tournament of the season begins.
Storm Hunter has stood out so far, winning four games in a row become the first Australian in 13 years to reach the second round in Paris in the qualifiers.
Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jason Kubler also had victories in their Roland Garros campaigns.
However, they are not the only Australian players with impressive results on the world stage.
