Australian Open: Djokovic makes comeback with a victory

Shannon Reynolds | 17 January, 2018, 00:33

The most taxing moment of Roger Federer's Australian Open first-round match with Aljaz Bedene came when special guest Will Ferrell entered the Rod Laver Arena to interview him.

In freaky scenes following the Swiss maestro's 6-3 6-4 6-3 win over Aljaz Bedene on Tuesday night, the Hollywood icon walked onto the court and stole the limelight from the 19-time grand slam champion with an interview as awkward as what you'd expect given the role he's played that will define the actor's legacy. Federer will next challenge Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff, who hit 45 winners, including 19 aces, past wild card Soonwoo Kwon of South Kore in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 victory in 77 minutes.

The second seed, who is eyeing a 20th grand slam title at Melbourne Park, made short work of Bedene in the pair's first meeting, although it was the world number two who tallied the higher number of unforced errors. "But he has to be 100 percent ready emotionally, not just physically, to have a chance to win the title".

I was there for his last match.

Roger, tonight you seemed like a gazelle out there on the court. Don't they get eaten at the end?

The 36-year-old eased into the first set as he broke to go 3-1 up, and it was smooth sailing from there as Federer set the tone with an early break point in the second set.

Out Kristina Mladenovic and Petra Kvitova.

'This is a big test to play Gael in the second round.

A quick look at the things that transpired on Day 2 of the Australian Open 2018. "The third was up and down a little bit, but in general, it was a great performance".

Federer, a five-time Australian Open champ, is the favorite to win on the men's side.

"I was thinking a lot about what happened at the tournament past year because it was my favourite tournament of the whole season.it was such a surprise", Federer said.
