Australian Open Round 2: Ivanovic Monfils On The Court, Murray Hewitt To Follow


The bottom half’s round 2 of the Australian Open is currently underway. Ana Ivanovic is playing off Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia. This should be a good match as both the ladies are in full form.

The match to look out for in the morning session is definitely the one that is going on between Gael Monfils and Nicholas Mahut. Their head to head shows monfils taking the upper hand, but Mahut will not easily let go off the match.



This is the first time they are meeting in a Grand Slam. The last time they faced each other was in 2012. With 4 years apart, it is definitely a match worth watching.

Meanwhile, the hard hitting John Isner is playing against Marcel Granollers. The world number 10 has already won the first set by 6-3.

Coming up next is Garbine Muguruza and Kirsten Flipkens. Muguruza has already impressed the critics with her game style and many are calling her the female Federer. If Muguruza keeps her calm and continues to play her game, we might see her in the finals.

The afternoon session will feature the local Aussie boy Sam Groth and the Scot superstar Andy Murray. Groth has a history of defeating big names. And Murray is in brilliant form (he’s world number 2!). We are expecting a delicious afternoon treat from both this big boys.

The evening session is what we are all looking forward to. The match between Lleyton Hewitt and David Ferrer is not only going to be huge, it is also going to weigh a lot of tensions. This is Hewitt’s last Grand Slam before retiring this year. He has to play his best game if he wants to continue further. On the other hand, Ferrer is in full shape. He is currently the world number 8. The Spaniard’s year to date matches won and lost balance equally on 2-2. Both are hard hitting players. Both are veterans in the tennis circuit. And both are playing great tennis.

Lastly, let’s not forget Victoria Azarenka, one of the players who can easily win this year’s Australian Open title. We are just waiting for another eventful day, and let’s see which stars fall today. Keep watching for this space for more updates.
