Default Re: Grand Slam Debutantes.

There are six certain debutantes at this year's AO:

Thanasi Kokkinakis - AUS (WC)
Jordan Thompson - AUS (WC)

The last Australian player to debut at a GS: Matt Reid, 2013 Wimb

Alejandro Gonzalez - COL (DE)
The last Colombian player to debut at a GS: Robert Farah, 2011 USO

Alexander Nedovyesov - KAZ (DE)
The last Kazakh player to debut at a GS: Mikhail Kukushkin, 2010 USO

In addition, there are two more guaranteed debutants, as two qualification matchups pit potential debutants against each other:

Dusan Lajovic - SRB vs. Tsung-Hua Yang - TPE

Both are 0-1 in previous GS QR3
The last Serbian player to debut at a GS: Filip Krajinovic, 2012 RG
The last Taiwanese player to debut at a GS: Jimmy Wang & Yen-Hsun Lu, 2004 Wimb

Blaz Rola - SLO vs. Pierre-Hugues Herbert - FRA

The last Slovenian player to debut at a GS: Aljaz Bedene, 2013 AO
The last French player to debut at a GS: Albano Olivetti, 2013 USO

Seven other players will play for debuts:

Damir Dzumhur - BIH vs. Bemelmans

Would be the first Bosnian player (Delic was an American when he debuted)

Dominic Thiem - AUT vs. Klizan

The last Austrian player to debut at a GS: Andreas Haider-Maurer, 2010 USO

Yuichi Sugita - JPN vs. Guez

Sugita is 0-3 in GS QR3
The last Japanese player to debut at a GS: Hiroki Moriya, 2012 USO

Ze Zhang - CHN vs. Marchenko

The last Chinese player to debut at a GS: Di Wu, 2013 AO

Taro Daniel - JPN vs. Bellucci


Marton Fucsovics - HUN vs. Millot

The last Hungarian player to debut at a GS: Attila Savolt, 2000 RG

Daniel Kosakowski - USA vs. Wang

Kosakowski is 0-1 in GS QR3
The last American player to debut at a GS: Collin Altamirano, 2013 USO

Lucky loser spots could potentially get players in as well, with Lajovic best placed to get a debut that way.
