HeinekenOpen_stack_RGB1

 

(January 8, 2013) No. 29 Jurgen Melzer was knocked out of Auckland by the 373rd-ranked Greg Jones 7-6 (7), 6-2. Jones who had to win three matches to qualify for the tournament, had to come back from 4-6 down in the first set tiebreak.

“It’s a pretty good feeling,” said Jones. “I had a pretty rough year last year, which my ranking shows. I trained really hard in Melbourne with a couple of guys, a couple of fellow Aussies during the offseason, and physically I’m just feeling a lot better on the court.”
