Giving tennis more than a shot

Australian Open – Matches To Follow (Day 2)

The second day is close to starting in Melbourne and as I did yesterday, here are the matches that I will watch or, at least, follow as closely as possible if they can’t be seen:

 

  • Rui Machado vs David Ferrer (5) (first on MCA) – just because it’s Ferrer.
  •  

  • Andreas Seppi vs Richard Gasquet (17) (first on Show Court 2) – Something tells me we may see a battle.
  •  

  • Santiago Giraldo vs Matteo Viola (first on Court 5) – Will Miracle Matteo run out of miracles?
  •  

  • Gisela Dulko vs Maria Sharapova (4) (second on HiSense Arena) – Sharapova is playing her first match since pulling out of the Year-End Championships last season, so this could be very interesting. An upset is possible.
  •  

  • Jelena Dokic vs Anna Chakvetadze (second on MCA) – The battle of the fighters. I want both to win and I know it’s impossible. Heartbreak in the making.
  •  

  • Jurgen Zopp vs James Duckworth (second on Show Court 3) – I just love Duckworth’s game and I’m sure all the Duckwagon will be ready for that one!
  •  

  • Rebecca Marino vs Greta Arn (second on Court 10) – This should be a tough match.
  •  

  • Michaël Llodra vs Esnests Gulbis (second on Court 11) – Shame this match is not on a TV court. It could’ve been fun to watch!
  •  

  • Janko Tipsarevic (9) vs Dmitry Tursunov (second on Court 18) – Please explain me why this isn’t on a TV court?
  •  

  • Andy Murray (4) vs Ryan Harrison (third on HiSense Arena) – Who will lose his cool first?
  •  

  • Thomaz Bellucci vs Dudi Sela (last on Court 5) – A battle of headcases.
  •  

  • Viktor Troicki (18) vs Juan Carlos Ferrero (last on Court 18) – Repeat my question of Tipsarevic – Tursunov.
  •  

  • Cedrik-Marcel Stebe vs Lleyton Hewitt (first night match on Rod Laver Arena) – Hewitt, who will tonight play the first match of his 16th Australian Open, faces a tough up-and-coming German.

 

The full schedule can be found here. Another great night of tennis awaits us!
