Roger Federer has without setverlies placed for the third round of the Australian Open, though he had the necessary effort to move away from the Brit Daniel Evans. The women also continued to titelverdedigster Caroline Wozniacki flawless.

It was Wednesday in Melbourne, and surprisingly mild for the Australian summer to me is a temperature less than 25 degrees, a little wind, and even an occasional drop. An ideal weather for Roger Federer (ATP 3) that can be used without setverlies qualified for the third round of the Australian Open, the first grand slam tournament of the season. In the second round in Rod Laver Arena had the former number one of the world’s only three sets against the British kwalificatiespeler Daniel Evans (ATP 189) but I had two tiebreaks needed: 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (7/4) and 6-3.

The American had Wednesday four sets against the Frenchman Gaël Monfils (ATP 33): 6-3, 6-7 (8/10), 7-6 (8/6), 7-6 (7/5). Federer is in Melbourne on the hunt for his seventh title, which would be the hundredth in total.

In the women also has the Danish titelverdedigster Caroline Wozniacki (WTA 3) easily placed for the third round. In the second round, was the former number one in the world not too much affected by the Swedish Johanna Larsson (WTA 77). Just as in the opening round against compatriot Alison Van Uytvanck (WTA 52) she had only two sets are needed: 6-1 and 6-3. In the third round is a duel against the Russian Maria Sharapova (WTA 30), also a former number one, to the possibilities. Then Sharapova, however, first past the Swedish Rebecca Peterson (WTA 62) to get.
