Yanina Wickmayer in Melbourne

Yanina WickmayerBaghdatis lost two sets, seemingly a pace slower than an in form Ferrer, smashed his racquets, drew in the crowd’s cheering, and powered back to win another marathon while cramping. He’ll have a day to recover before another Hewitt reunion.

Ana Ivanovic managed to find a way to lose to Dulko, but really she could have lost to anyone. How have the mighty fallen to be twice relegated to lesser courts. Wasn’t she once a star? She still looks like one of course but organisers have too many Aussies to parade on the grandstand courts before they depart the early rounds.

Is it good that Henin was denied a seeding so that we could have stunning early round matchups or terrible in that we are now denied Dementieva’s presence? Henin gets to beat Kleybanova next before the Wickmayer confrontation with the winner almost certainly playing Clijsters. Who will win the Belgian quarter?

Poor Bernard Tomic had to stay up way past his bedtime to lose to Marin Cilic and was not a little upset about it afterwards. Staying up late that is - he’s used to losing. Of course he could have converted some of those chances he wasted and won quickly and he could just accept that he’s playing an adult tournament and grow up and stop making excuses. Oh and maybe even apologise to Hewitt and move on. And maybe hire a real coach instead of Dad? It doesn’t matter, he’ll still get another wildcard next year and a prime TV spot. Meanwhile Hewitt beat former child prodigy Donald Young – anyone remember him?
