News -

Andy has reached the third round of the Australian Open after another confident display, defeating Joao Sousa of Portugal. From the outset the world number three wasted no time, ploughing through the first two sets 6-2 6-2 and eventually winning through a marginally longer third set 6-4. With temperatures on court reaching the high thirties, a cool Andy recorded his second straight sets victory of his 2013 Australian Open campaign without dropping service once.

Speaking after the match Andy said “It doesn’t matter how much you training do its always tough to get used to these conditions, its extremely hot when the sun comes through the clouds, so it was good to get in it done in three sets because physically its very demanding.”

Andy will play Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania in round three.
