Somdev gets a tough first round at Australian Open

MELBOURNE: India's wild card entrant Somdev Devvarman was on Friday handed a tough draw at the Australian Open as he is pitted against world number 51 Tommy Robredo in the first round of the men's singles event. Somdev, ranked 110 in the world, was awarded one of the two wild cards for Asian players by the organisers of the first Grand Slam of the season. Somdev had never managed to get into the main draw as he failed in his previous two attempts in the qualifiers. If Somdev manages to cross the first hurdle, he will be up against either Victor Hanescu of Romania or 16th seed American Mardy Fish. Sania Mirza, meanwhile, is going through the qualifiers for an entry into the the women's singles main draw. She has cleared the first round and will face Russia's Vitalia Diatchenko next. In the men's doubles, the 'Indian-Express' of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi is returning to the court together after a gap of the 11 years with an aim to win the elusive Australian Open trophy. This is the only Grand Slam the duo have not won in their successful career.

Former champion Novak Djokovic was pitted in the same bottom half of the men's singles as four-time champion Roger Federer in the official draw on Friday for next week's Australian Open. The Serbian third seed, who beat Federer in the semifinals of the 2008 Australian Open and went on to win the major, is in line for a semifinal with second seed Federer on seeding projections. World number one Rafael Nadal has Sweden's fourth seed Robin Soderling and last year's beaten finalist and fifth seed Andy Murray of Great Britain in his top half of the draw.

Fed and Rafa have won 21 of the last 23 majors between them. :woot: Rally for Relief was great today. So many of the stars chipped in to raise money for the victims of the Queensland floods, and seeing Wozniacki and Ivanovic on court together, :woot: :woot:.
