I won my second round match today against Brydan Klein, my best result to date against a player who is ranked in the 200′s. I had a medical time out in the first set tie-breaker which I won after a fall, then in the second set came back from 4-1 down to take the second set. I face another aussie tomorrow my travelling partner and fellow Tennis Australia mate Nick Kyrgios. Cheers Blake

I made it through qualifying and now play the Main Draw. I had a tough match and while I won the first set 7-5 in a close one, I lost concentration in the second 1-6 and then was able to get the third. I feel I played well in the third and felt confident which got me through. I have a day off then play on Wednesday. Cheers Blake
