Czech star Tomas Berdych will look to secure his place in the third round of the Australian Open when he takes on French star Kenny de Schepper.
Any concerns pundits had over Berdych’s form after a poor end to 2013 and his first round loss to Ivo Karlovic in the Qatar Open were cast aside as the 28 year old made light work of his first round clash with Aleksandr Nedovyesov winning 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 in 1 hour and 50 minutes and he will hope for another quick success against the 87th ranked de Schepper.
Berdych donned an Argentinean-esque blue and white stripped for his first round clash which was played in 42 degree heat and with the temperatures once again set to soar he will hope for a similar result on Wednesday.
Despite hitting 35 winners in the game, Berdych was most pleased with his serve as he served at 66 per cent and won 83 per cent of points on his first serve, facing only two break points (both of which were saved)
“I felt good on my serve. I was facing just maybe few – two maybe – breakpoints down, which I managed to save,” he said.
“Didn’t drop my serve through all the game.”
De Schepper meanwhile advanced into the second round after a close three set match against Di Wu of China eventually prevailing 7-5, 7-5, 7-6 (2). This was the first time the French star, whose father is former Belgian squash player, has made it past the first round in Melbourne.
In 2013 he enjoyed his best run at a Grand Slam when he made it to fourth round of Wimbledon beating Paolo Lorenzi, Marin Cilic and Juan Monaco before losing to Fernando Verdasco.
The big serving 26 year old stands at over six foot and begin his season with a first round loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky in Sydney.
De Schepper has never played Berdych before but with Czech star tipped to make the quarter-finals for the fourth year in a row a shock victory seems unlikely.
