Blake, Monfils, Tsonga, Venus and Serena All Through To AO Second Round...Today Was A Good Day

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

American Serena Williams appears to be willing cooler air onto the 100 degree court of the Rod Laver Arena. Regardless of the sweltering conditions, Serena defeated Meng Yuan of China 6-3, 6-2.

A very satisfied Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, defeated Argentine Juan Monaco 6-4, 6-4, 6-0. He had good reason to celebrate that win. Now let's hope that back holds up.

Another satisfied Frenchman also enjoyed victory. Gael Monfils defeated Argentine Martin Vassallo Arguello 6-1, 6-3, 7-5.

The other half of the American Williams sister duo, Venus, made it through her first round with ease as she defeated German Angelique Kerber 6-3, 6-3.

Last, but definitely not least, American James Blake defeated Canadian Frank Dancevic in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, 7-5. Blake was hot! Dancevic gave as good as he got, but was unable to topple Blake.
