Hmm, plenty of PR's this time around. I hope Horna gets in, but not very likely.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

First Players Arriving in Australia

I was wondering which are the players that arrive in Melbourne first, or for that matter any of the tournaments the first week. Mostly, for tournaments that start on a Monday players will get there Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. But because this tournament is at the beginning of the year, with no others before it, how early do players get there? Which players?
