Australian Open 2009

The main draw will be announced soon. Marcos entered the tournament unseeded after an injury-ravaged year.

Re: Australian Open 2009

Marcos got Julien Benneteau in the first round of Australian Open. Robin Soderling is most likely his second round opponent.

Marcos has landed on Djokovic's quarter.

Re: Australian Open 2009

I think his draw is fine, Söderling did well this week, but maybe he'll return to his usual outdoor struggling next week, Bolelli/Vliegen/Groth/Fish in 3rd round can hardly be any better for a non-seed; but first of all he has to get past Benneteau of course, good luck

Re: Australian Open 2009

Chardy will upset Nole in round 2, so there should be no problem with the Serb

Re: Australian Open 2009

Relatively kind draw for Marcos. Time to rediscover some of that AO magic from AO's past (not last year's open). Good luck, Marcos.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
