Roger Federer safely through to round three of Australian Open

Roger Federer vs Aljaz Bedene live stream TV channel UK time and odds

The 19-time grand slam champion overcame long-time rival Rafael Nadal in an "epic" five-set showdown in last year's final and he was happy to reflect on a memorable encounter.

His next opponent will be Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff tomorrow, when temperatures in Melbourne are expected to rise to about 40 deg C.

"I was a bit scared", Federer joked. I can't control it all, it was a fairy tale.

"I hope I under thrive under those conditions, too, because if you want to get to the top, you've got to be able to play in all conditions".

Ferrell, in town for the Australian Open and has been at both day one and day two of the Open, joined the world No. 2 and American tennis great John McEnroe on court. Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young.

The player generally considered the greatest ever might well get some special treatment, but unless Tennis Australia decides to convert every outside court into an air-conditioned arena, someone has to courageous the heat. "There is no better place for me to start playing after six months away than here in Australia".

Federer looked aggressive in the second set but Struff held his own until Federer broke his serve in the seventh game, eventually taking the second set by the same score of 6-4.

In the women's singles Britain's Johanna Konta will next play Bernarda Pera in the second round after a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Madison Brengle.

World No 94 Marterer reached the third round with a 6-4 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 6-3 over Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco.

"I run around the backhand presently". It was sunny. It was quite a full stadium.

"I'm loving it and hopefully I can play for a little longer". I was really excited to play.

"It was a fun interview, I thought".

Top-ranked Simona Halep had to save set points at 5-2 down in the first set, and badly twisted her left ankle early in the second, before beating teenage wild-card entry Destanee Aiava 7-6 (5), 6-1.
