AO R1: Berakis def Matosevic 6-4, 6-2, 7-5

Rycka

Choked serving for it at 5-4 with his first double fault of the entire match but recovered to break and served it out. Will be a battle of Young vs Old next, as he'll play winner of Fat Dave & Rusty Hewitt next round. Mouthwatering.

So-so performance from Berankis in this match. Needs to play better in the next one.

A bit too many UE's for my liking, but in general he controlled the entire match and added some when he needed to. An okay performance, obviously could be better

Can't wait for R2, it will be a pleasure and honor to see him fight against either Nalbandian or Hewitt If 5 years ago someone would have told me that in near future some Lithuanian guy will play in R2 of Australian Open vs Nalbandian or Hewitt I would have just straight up called some mental institution to let them know about a psycho walking free but hey, here we are..

agreed - a bit of a snoozefest this match was...Berankis has to clean up his ground game in order to have a shot at beating Nalby/Hewitt. But hey, that's a third straight R2 in a GS for the "diminutive" lithuanian

He has no chance against Hewitt next round, he will lose in three sets.
