2010 Australian Open – Second Round Draw

The 2010 Australian Open First round is over with and we are now down to the last 64 men. We lost a couple of high profile players including 8th seed Robin Soderling, 13th Radek Stepanek, 16th seed Tommy Robredo and 3 other mens seeds.

Of the favorites all passed their first round tests comfortably with only Roger Federer dropping a set.

The second round sees Andy Murray take on Frenchman Marc Gicquel and Rafael Nadal take on Slovakian Lukas Lacko in the bottom quarter. Andy Roddick takes Thomaz Bellucci, whilst the 4th seed Juan Martin Del Potro takes on James Blake, which should well be the match of the second round – Blake only last year was a top 20 player. The bottom half matches will be played on Wednesday.

In the top half, matches are scheduled for Thursday. Roger Federer takes on Victor Hanescu, Nikolay Davydenko takes on qualifier Illya Marchenk and 3rd seed Novak Djokovic takes on Marco Chiudinelli.
