Flying Start For Delpo & Nalby

A good start to the Albiceleste Army in Australia. Apart from Agustin CALLERI, all the rest made progress to the next round.

As expected our two main hopes, Juan Martin DEL POTRO and David NALBANDIAN did not disappoint at all, though David did drop a set in his match. He overcome Marc GICQUEL, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 & 6-3.

DEL POTRO was in full swing against Mischa ZVEREV, winning in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 & 6-2. Brian DABUL too won in straight sets 6-1, 6-2 & 6-4.

The only setback of the day as mentioned earlier was CALLERI. He lost to Spaniard Guillermo GARCIA-LOPEZ, 6-3, 6-7, 2-6 & 0-6.

Hi there John. I'm really looking forward to watch the second round match between Nalby and Asian Rendy Lu. Of course I would hope for an upset here :P And as for JMDP, I don't think he has any trouble overcoming Florian Mayer.
