Andy Murray is through to third round of the BNP Paribas Open after defeating Lukas Rosol, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. But it wasn't a halcyon day for Murray, as he dropped the opener to the upset-minded Czech, and took a smash to the armour in the third set. Of course you want to see the smash, right? Well, here it is. Pretty innocent I guess, but when you take into account that Rosol had the whole court in either direction to place that smash, it makes you wonder: Is Lukas Rosol a mean-hearted guy? Since I don't pass judgement, I'll let you decide after watching the vid>>>
Ana Ivanovic is through to the third round of the BNP Paribas Open after scraping by up-and-coming Elina Svitolina, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6(1). Check out Ana working the crowd after winning a rapid fire exhange at the net to earn herself five match points. Classic stuff from the former Indian Wells champion. The double fist pump with a hip thrust thrown in is a nice touch... Ivanovic will get the Tomljanovic-Stephens winner in the round of 16. See the women's draw Here.

Mike and Bob Bryan went 70-13 last year with 11 titles, and they came just two matches short of winning the calendar-year Grand Slam at the US Open. So, what can the 35-year-olds do for an encore in 2014? We gonna see, no? The Bryans, who are 57-8 with six Australian Open titles under their belts, got their Melbourne prep underway with a first-round victory over Lukas Kubot and Robert Lindstedt in Sydney on Monday.
