Great start for Kyle Edmund, I'm very interested in the British hopes this year.

Jo Konta, Kyle Edmund and Aljaz Bedene especially. wub.gif

Naomi Broady through to the third round in Auckland although how her opponent Jelena Ostapenko wasn't disqualified for appearing to throw a racquet towards a ball boy is something I can't work out. That should be a disqualification without a doubt.

Watched the whole match. She obviously threw racquet on purpose but think she didn't hit ball boy on purpose.

Think she should've gotten defaulted tho.
Don't really understand why Naomi focused on arguing after the match tho.

This is awesome:



It's not like it was for an insignificant point in the match either, which makes it all the more impressive!

It's certainly an eyebrow-raiser but we need more details to come out really to get a better idea of it all.

Match fixing occurs in every sport so I can't say I'm all that surprised.

More shocks today with Nadal out losing in five sets to Verdasco and also in the women's draw second seed Simona Halep crashing out as well.

I don't think Nadal will win another Grand Slam title. I got a funny feeling he could retire this year.

We say goodbye to Lleyton Hewitt's tennis career as he exited the Australian Open to David Ferrer in his final singles match. A two-time Grand Slam champion.

Great player. His rally against Roger Federer (you all know the one) is the best I've ever seen in the sport.

Good news for Brits, both Konta & Murray are into round 3. Konta will playing Denisa Allertova who knocked out a player who many people (including myself) quite like Sabine Lisicki.

Shame that Sabine Lisicki is out although pleased to see Murray and Konta go through.

Also Azarenka and Muguruza both comfortably through the second and third seed in the women's draw.

Konta streaming ahead into the quarters. Fantastic for her biggrin.gif

First time we've gotten both genders into the quarters of a Grand Slam for 39 years as well, excellent news for Britain.

I had the displeasure of going onto the Guardian and Daily Mail websites and nearly every single comment regarding this match was about whether she should be classed as British or not.

Half an hour of my live I will never get back! cry.gif
