Re: French Open
I was looking at some newspapers from 1972 and they said the French Open mens draw was 64 players and the women was only 32. The papers said there was a special preliminary play-in round to get to the main draw. Sure enough I go to the French Open website at it also says 64 for men and 32 for women. I check the archived French Open draw sheets and it says the same. Perhaps the wording here should reflect the official website?
Womens 1972 Draw.
The PDF-draw from the WTA is as big as 128 with byes for seeds in "1st" and "2nd" round. It surely be a maindraw of 32 and 2 rounds of qualifying.
