Re: Australian Open R1 : Kuznetsov def. Monaco 7-6 (3) 6-1 6-1
And this is the second consecutive match that Monaco loses on a first round of a Grand Slam. He has to be worried about defending his ranking.

Kenny de Schepper fact of the month (January 2015): never lost a match against the Big 4 (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray), something that can't be told by none of the TOP 30 players of the year-end 2014 ATP rankings.
"Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal
