Lacko continues in solid results, after QF showings in Doha and Auckland he is now in R2 in Australian Open.
Slovak started strong and hadn't lost a point on his serve for the first 6 service games, until he lost 5 points in 2nd set. 3rd set was quite up-and-down, Lacko was up 5-3 w/break after fighting 4 Muller's breakpoints. At 5-4 he got broken (had one MP) and at 5-6 was happy to get to the tiebreak after deuce.
In TB it was one way road for Lacko and now he plays Tipsarevic or Hewitt in second round.
