Re: Roko Karanusic cheering thread
Excellent win for Roko, 75 75 36 62. It's only his third singles MD win in a GS event (also Wimbledon '06 and '08). With it, he'll move to a new career-high rank of around 90.
In the 2nd round he plays Nishikori (#126). It'll be a tough match but Roko can't complain. There aren't many lower-ranked players in the 2nd round of a major (Nishikori was the very last person to make it into the MD directly). In any event, it's better than having to play Monaco (#29 seed), who lost to Nishikori today.
This is a good chance for Roko to reach the 3rd round of a major for the first time in his career. Go for it, Roko, and good luck!
