Tennis Australia Update:

Marcos Baghdatis has put in a measured first-round performance to hold off Gold Coast wildcard Ben Mitchell on Pat Rafter Arena on New Year’s Eve. The unseeded Cypriot defeated the 20-year-old Australian 6-4, 6-4 to advance to a second-round clash with sixth-seeded German Florian Mayer.

Australia’s Sam Stosur experienced a straight-sets first-round defeat to Swede Sofia Arvidsson at the Brisbane International on New Year’s Eve. In a blow to her Australian Open preparations, Stosur exited 7-6(4) 7-5 to Swede Sofia Arvidsson to be the second top-10 star upset on Pat Rafter Arena on Monday.

Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki was the first big-name casualty of the tournament after the eighth seed was upset in three-sets 2-6, 6-3, 7-6(1) by Kazakh qualifier Ksenia Pervak.

 

Men’s fifth seed Kei Nishikori (JPN) has made an impressive start to his Brisbane campaign, ending the hopes of newly crowned Australian No.1 Marinko Matosevic 7-5, 6-2 on Pat Rafter Arena late Monday

 

Brisbane local John Millman has won his way through qualifying to reach the men’s main draw for the third time. Millman, ranked 199th, upset American leftie Donald Young in straight sets 6-4, 6-2 and will await news of who he has drawn to meet in the first round.
