Fabulous Federer Comfortable Into Third Round

Fabulous Federer Comfortable Into Third Round

Defending champion Roger Federer moved smoothly into his majestic stride with a straight-sets win over Slovenian Aljaz Bedene in his opening match at the Australian Open on Tuesday.

"I'm hoping for it to go well again".

The 19-time Grand Slam champion will face Frenchman Richard Gasquet in the third round on Saturday.

Former Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber beat Croatian Donna Vekic 6-4 6-1 to celebrate her 30th birthday with a third round berth at Melbourne Park.

The comments come amid chatter that the players are advocating for the start of their own union, separate from the ATP which also acts as event organiser.

Dominic Thiem survived his first career five-set match at the Australian Open, rallying from two sets down to defeat 190th-ranked American qualifier Denis Kudla 6-7 (6-8) 3-6 6-3 6-2 6-3 while American Sam Querrey was knocked out after losing 6-4 7-6 (8-6) 4-6 6-2 to 80th-ranked Marton Fucsovics of Hungary.

And the World number one, Simona Halep fended off teenage wildcard Destanee Aiava to also advance to the second round od the competition. But she made a meal of it against local hope Destanee Aiava.

In the past ten matches, Struff has won five matches and lost five matches.

"I cherish these moments".

Federer said going over the same process of having to ask for more was realize "a bit boring", but the revenue-sharing model was not quite where it was supposed to be.

"It's been a couple of years and I wanted it to be really meaningful to me". "I couldn't possibly complain, as they built the tournaments and audiences I was gonna play for".

Sixth seed Karolina Pliskova and eighth seed Caroline Garcia also progressed, in contrast to the other side of the draw that saw Venus Williams, Sloane Stephens and Coco Vandeweghe crash out on Monday.

Previous year during the Australian Open, Kvitova was recovering from surgery to her left hand as a result of a knife attack from an assailant who broke into her home in Czech Republic in late 2016. The Grand Slams know that.
