Watched an interview couple of days ago where he talked about the start of the season. He was confidend about his health and said that he will be fresh and very motivated to make a strong start in Australia. I really hope he will go deep into the AO this year, maybe 4th round or more with some luck in the Draw.
Good match. Lleyton and Gooch really had their chances in that second set. Up a break with Gooch serving at 40-15 and Chris hit a bad patch. Then up 0-40 on Butorac's serve Lleyton couldn't find the returns he needed on the 3bp's that were served his way. In general though, if Gooch could improve his return these two guys would be absolutely lethal together.
