Roger Federer will be in unfamiliar territory tonight when he takes Slovenia’s Blaz Kavcic in the 2nd round of the Australian Open.
The Swiss star is scheduled to play the match in the Hisense Arena, the first time in 64 matches he won’t be the main attraction in the Rod Laver Arena.
The last time the 17 time grand slam winner was seen on the courts on the Hisense Arena was back in 2004, when he was the holder of just Grand Slam title.
That year, he won the Australian Open beating Marat Safin in the final and while he would be pleased of a similar result this year as he chases his fifth major in Melbourne.
Federer, making a record 57th appearance in a Grand Slam tournament, made a comfortable start to the competition, easily overcoming the challenge of wildcard James Duckworth, winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in one hour and 46 minutes.
The world number six was relatively pleased with his opening clash, telling reporters “It was not much rhythm out there.”
“It was a matter of getting the job done and not getting broken. So it was a solid match from start to finish. Could have maybe won a few more break points here and there, but who cares now?”
Next up is world number 99 Kavcic who beat former World number 8 Radek Stepanek in the first round. Despite losing the first set to the veteran Kavcic advanced when his 35 year old opponent was forced to retire from the contest with a neck injury.
At the time the Slovenian was leading 2-1 in sets and 2-0 in games with Stepanek clearly struggling despite his best attempts to continue. Last year Kavcic had his best effort run at a grand slam event progressing to the third round where he lost to then 7th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Thursday’s meeting will be the first clash between the pair and given the gulf in clash Federer will be the heavy favourite to advance and if Kavcic can take a set it would be considered a bonus.
