Re: Australian Open QR1: Johnson def. [WC] Kokkinakis 6-4 6-7(5) 17-15

I watched the match last night. Inspite of it was not one of Johnson's best matches (he wasted several chances and even serving for the match at 5-4 in the 3rd set he looked very nervous and frustrated he was unable to find a way to beat Kokkinakis). And the teenager Australian played a fantastic match. I was kind more impressed with his determination, the strategies he set along the match and his ability to keep his cold feet to close that 2nd set and keep on the match for almost 4 hours. He is still really young and has a long way yet but definitely seems to have a big potential. Definitely a name to write down to follow him in the future.
