Re: Go Tomas in Australia!!!
Robert Smeets his match

The campaign of Australian wildcard Robert Smeets has been ended by Czech No.13 seed Tomas Berdych, who booked his spot in the third round with a straight-sets win on Margaret Court Arena.
Berdych, considered somewhat of a dark horse for the men's title after a strong first round performance, looked every bit the contender against the Dutch-born 21 year-old, winning 6-3 6-2 6-4.
A single break of serve decided the first set, with the Australian faltering, and handing Berdych a one-set advantage. The Czech wound up the pressure in the second set with two breaks, and just seven unforced errors to bounce to a 2-0 lead.
Smeets rallied hard, and got his first break for the match in the third set. But Berdych was firmly in control, with two breaks of his own to book his spot in the final 32 against either Max Mirnyi or Dmitry Tursunov.
