His next opponent will be Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff on Thursday when temperatures in Melbourne are expected to climb to about 40 degrees centigrade. It's sensical." "I can't tell you how many times at U.S. based I played second night match after Andre/Pete. That's what happened for me previous year.

"I'm sure tennis would be much better off as a whole if they played Roger/Rafa/Serena/Novak/Maria out on court 13 just as often as everyone else".

He hit 12 aces to deny Bedene a first win at Melbourne Park.
