Lukasz Kubot POL (15) v Go Soeda JPN
Michael Yani USA v Marc Lopez ESP
Conor Niland IRL
v Daniel Cox GBR (WC)
Antonio Veic CRO v Prakash Amritraj IND (28)
Good first round draw for Conor
It's a shame Louks not here this year, he did so well last year
Louk got a WC here, along with Barry, Farron-Mahon & Cluskey. Potential semi-final between Louk & McGee or Barry King. Hopefully O'Brien makes the final from the other side, maybe even a QF with Farron-Mahon, he's been playing well lately. Sam Barry playing the sixth seed in the first round, tough draw.
11 IRL players in qualies, not one qualified
Good luck to all Irish players
