TTT – Aussie Open Update #3

So the 18 yr old Aussie  Tomic plays F Lopez in round 2, and that will be very interesting to see. The veteran of dozens of slams, multiple trips to the 4th round and beyond a couple times, Lopez could be exposed on his backhand side, which has never been much of a threat most of his career… just slicing away. I could see an upset here…

Young American Ryan Sweeting had a very strong win vs Gimeno-Traver 1, 4, & 4, but now plays Nadal next…pack your bags Ryan. Both Isner and Stepanek cruised in 3 sets, and should make for a very interesting Rnd 2 battle. I think the aging Czech will win.  Watch for a rising Santiago Giraldo to test Cilic in rnd 2, Cilic has not been playing to his level for a while now. Dolgopolov cruised over Kukushkin, but Gulbis lost in STRAIGHT SETS to 29 yr old #55 Benjamin Becker! Such a waste of talent…

20 yr old Richard Berankis won an easy straight sets match to cruise into a 2nd round encounter with either Hewitt or Nalbo, who are just starting right now. Another kid vs vet battle…gotta love the clash of generations.
