Australian Open: Federer eases past Gasquet into fourth round


Roger Federer has raised a few eyebrows with his comments about playing in extreme heat while he himself receives preferential treatment with his schedule at the Australian Open.

"It's great to be here with two tennis legends", Ferrell started, gesturing towards Federer and McEnroe.

On Tuesday night, he got something different.

Except it wasn't really Ferrell asking the questions; the star pulled out that deep voice and slipped back into his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy to get the answers the crowd really wanted.

Ferrell continued: "You're 36 years old".

Tom Brady Was Gushing Blood After Injuring Thumb
Wide receiver Danny Amendola took the podium after Brady and was asked if he caught any balls in practice from Brady on Friday. As for areas that could improve, his hands were inconsistent at times with some drops, so that might be a good place to start.

Roger Federer was greeted by an alternative post-match interviewer after his straight sets victory over Aljaz Bedene in the first round of the Australian Open.

That is exactly what happened in the second and third sets.

"He (Federer) was lucky in that set that Hawkeye was broken", Courier said.

The final set lasted two hours and 22 minutes while the 48 games for the entire match equals the most for a women's encounter in Australian Open history, tying the 1996 quarter-final between Chanda Rubin Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, which Rubin won 6-4, 2-6, 16-14.

"He came to train with me in Switzerland past year", said Federer.

Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - prefers to think of or Novak Djokovic as the favorites for the Australian Open title, despite entering as defending champion and coming off a worry-free preparation. Richard played well - and me too.

No. 4-ranked 4-Alexander Zverev, No. 5 Dominic Thiem, No. 7 David Goffin, No. 19 Tomas Berdych advanced, but No. 20 Roberto Bautista Agut lost to Fernando Verdasco and former Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic lost to Lukas Lacko. It did not seem to bother him, though, as he put in another textbook performance to dispose of Albert Ramos-Vinolas for the loss of just eight games, 6-2, 6-3, 6-3. Garcia will play Madison Keys in the fourth round.

Gasquet had some misfortune with Hawkeye in the second set, having what looked like a decent challenge turned down because the system was not working before going down 2-0 when the rebooted technology showed he had gone long on set point.
