“MARCHENKO GOES DOWN FIGHTING”
Marchenko was always going to have the odds stacked against him as he faced Murray in Round 2 on Thursday night. But with an enthusiastic 30 odd Ukrainian supporters cheering him on, hopes were held high. In what was a gallant battle, Murray proved too good for the up and coming Ukrainian, smashing him in 3 sets, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3.
“DAY 10 – ANOTHER UKRAINIAN FACES MURRAY!”
After his sensational Round 3 upset against 13th seeded Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, Alexandr Dolgopolov continued his great form into Round 4 yesterday, undoing Robin Soderling (4) in 5 sets, 1-6, 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.
Labelled as the ‘most unpredictable’ player in the Men’s singles tournament, Dolgopolov now faces in form, Andy Murray on Wednesday 26th Jan.
What better way to celebrate Australia day than getting down to Melbourne Park and supporting one of our own.
