Re: 2013 Australian Open Wildcards.

Report card on the 1st round of qualifying
8 wildcards and 2 direct entry - 50% win rate, 5x WC & 0x Direct

Thompson, Bolt, Barton, Reid and Feeney through

Grills, Kokkanakis, Kyrgios, Klein and Groth out

It will be interesting to see who survives the second round

Also interesting to note that 4 of the 5 winners today are from NSW - com'n the Blues
And Bolt from Canberra (surrounded by NSW - Lol)

Re: 2013 Australian Open Wildcards.

Isn't Bolt from South Aust?

Very disappointed in the losses and scores from Groth and Klein and the score by Kyrgios.

Thanasi battled hard and a shame he wasn't rewarded with a win but Im looking forward to seeing him come back in 12 months time!!

Not sure how Grills got a gig, wasted WC IMO....Thompson shocked me with a win there, well done to him.

Bolt, Barton, Feeney, Red all getting through was great, especially Reid, as he said post match he had chances last year when he had MP and a line call was overruled...now he is mentally stronger and would be great to see him get through to the Main Draw....

Im going Friday so will check out Barton/Feeney/Reid and hopefully Bolt can win tomorrow...

Re: 2013 Australian Open Wildcards.

Continuing on the AO Qualifying Tournament Aussie Men's results:
2nd Round:

Thompson beaten 62 64 by Ryan Sweeting(21) - expected but Jordan performed beyond expectation in winning 1st round
Bolt beaten by 64 57 86 Florent Serra(4) - sooo unlucky, outstanding performance by Alex
Barton beaten by Smyczek 36 64 61 - disappointing but a good effort by Barton, fell off a bit at the end
Feeney beaten 75 64 by Stebe - a big fight back by Feeney in 2nd set did not come off.

And now just one Aussie still to come:
Reid v Reister - com'n Reidy - can he do it?

Unfortunately no - good fight, close match but Reid beaten by 76 64 Julian Reister

Disappointing but as predicted - no Aussie men qualify, none through to final round.
