Wow, Aussie wildcards Alex Bolt/Bradley Mousley knock 15th seeds Bopanna/Cuevas out of the doubles!

The pair are now into the 3R!

Mousley had NEVER PLAYED a main draw ATP doubles match til this AO and now he's won two straight. His doubles ranking is 330th in the world. Huge win! Alex Bolt's doubles ranking is 511th in the world!

Cuevas is ranked 33rd whilst Bopanna is ranked 22nd in the world! And yet the Aussie wildcards won! Crazy.

Mousley's doubles ranking will jump a whopping 144 spots to 186th in the world. Bolt's will jump 227 spots to 284th in the world.
Wow, another pair of Aussie wildcards knock out a seeded team. Marc Polmans/Andrew Whittingon knock out 8th seeds Nestor/Roger-Vasselin!

Before this tournament, Whittington's doubles ranking was 311th whilst Polmans was 250th. Whittington now jumps 126 spots to 185th, Polmans jumps 92 spots to 158th.

Nestor was ranked 15th, Roger-Vasselin 17th. Huge scalp.

Polmans had NEVER PLAYED an ATP main draw doubles match before this week, now he has 2 wins and into a slam 3R.

Stan - Troicki is a good matchup. Glad it didn´t go to five...

Credit to Troicki. He has incredible movement for his height :cool:

Evans breaks in the first.

Yup, when Evans gets in control of the point, he wins it. Tomic can't just hang in the rallies like he did with VEB.

2-2 now. You know those sports cars that beg you to be Mario Leadfoot can be sluggish if you give them too much throttle quickly.

Wow Evans is not a nice person. Just got lucky with a net chord there and no apology or anything as players do. *******.
Evans is a tennis version of English white trash, that we have come to love from our favorite British sitcoms.

Burberry would do well to sponsor him.

Maybe it's because Tomic's coach/dad said Evans was unfit to be his training partner, or that Tomic is a massive dou**e? lol j/k sort of.

But really net cord apologies are a bit silly, you're still happy you got the lucky break.

I've never really understood why players are supposed to apologise for net chords. You never see an opponent make an apologetic gesture if the other guy's ball fails to trip over the net! ;)

Agreed, have always wondered the same. Also Tomic fans criticising their opponent for not being a "nice" person is the death of irony. :D
