Novak Djokovic is seen as 1/250 to defeat Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Australian Open whilst ninth seed Richard Gasquet finds himself squaring off against former world number 4 Nikolay Davydenko.
Many people said that Novak Djokovic was the man to beat in Melbourne and the Serb certainly showed why many people thought that with a straight forward victory on Monday morning.
It seems that a repeat performance could be on the cards as the second seed faces Argentinean Leonardo Mayer for a spot in the third round.
Djokovic made short work of Slovakia’s Lukas Lacko in the first round on Monday as he defeated his opponent in straight sets with a 6-3 7-6 6-1 victory that clearly showed that he is well prepared for the game.
That win has meant that the world number two has now won his last 22 matches at Rod Laver Arena in what is one of the most impressive streaks in the tournament’s history.
His opponent, Leonardo Mayer, is entering new territory having reached the second round in Melbourne for the first time in 5 attempts after thrashing Spaniard Albert Montanes 6-1 6-3 6-1 on Monday.
It is a major milestone for the world number 91 who is seen to be more of a clay court specialist meaning that the Argentinean will need to try and adapt his game further if he is to unsettle the defending champion on Wednesday morning.
In the other stand out tie of the day, 9th seed Richard Gasquet will need to be at his very best if he is to overcome Nikolay Davydenko who was a regular fixture in the top 5 rankings just a few years ago.
Gasquet had no problems overcoming compatriot David Guez in the first round picking up a 7-5 6-4 6-1 victory as he looks to advance beyond the fourth round where he has been eliminated the past two years.
The Frenchman will certianly be used to facing Davydenko and has always had his number beating the Russian in 6 out of the 8 occasions that the two players have previously met.
Davydenko is slowly returning to some of the form that used to make him one of the top players in the world where he was ranked no 3 in the world back in 2006.
Despite only being ranked 62nd in the world, the Russian is a four time quarter finalist at the tournament and his five set victory of Lukasz Kubot shows that he still has what it takes to mix it with the best in the world.
The second round is always a time where we start to see the true chances of players at the tournament and it will mean that top seeds such as Djokovic and Gasquet will need to rise up to their rankings and see of the challenges of confident and determined underdogs looking for a big result
