Great for tennis in Ireland. Good to see he got it done in straights, and hope he gets a favourable draw now..

Congrats to Conor for battling in his first two matches, and taking full advantage of the weak QD he got. He's sure to be motivated for this event and it's great to see him qualify here.

With that said, guys are going to want to draw him as a qualifier, because he's not someone who wins many matches easily, so while he will want an advantageous draw, he himself is an advantageous draw for who he gets selected to play. So I hope Ruben or Charly draw him.

Something around 30 years Irish tennis was waiting for a male player in singles main draw.

Good job Conor ; )

Amazing win for Conor. His form has been really bad lately so I was really surprised to see him battle so well against ouanna. So happy for him, this is fantastic for Ireland. Can't wait to go and cheer him during his match.

Very commendable effort. Made the most of a very weak section in the QD. I hope he will enjoy what in all likelihood is his first and only Wimbledon. It's nice to see hard work being paid off.

Twitter claims he has Mannarino in First Round. Tricky but not impossible.

If he beats Mannarino....

Federer v Niland round 2... finally the GOAT debate can be put to bed.

I'm sure Federer will be eager to level the H2H, Conor won their only previous meeting...at a Tennis Europe U14 tournament. :p
