Knocking on heaven’s door

by Jonas Eriksson

Okay, it’s a dramatic headline crafted to grab your hard-earned attention for tomorrow’s top action. But what I also mean about it is all the youngsters that seem to have enough confidence to challenge the established pro’s in Australian Open. The first round witnessed Janowicz, a talented young man himself, go two sets down against 19-year-old home boy Thompson (Janowicz got through in 5 in the end) and tomorrow we’re tuning into 17-year-old (!) Thanasi Kokkinakis (above pic) who’s playing world number one, Rafael Nadal. Shouldn’t be a tight match, but he’s 17 and already in the 2nd round in a slam – so here’s POTENTIAL.

Kokkinakis is the second Greek to pose a threat for the top 10 future, his compatriot Nick Kyrgios being the other one. Here’s an  interview with the youngster.

Federer is playing Blaz Kavcic in what should be a straightforward affair, Murray should beat Millot easily and Del Potro should only be slightly troubled by talented Spaniard Bautista-Agut.

That’s the top 5 players in action tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

Question: Can Young upset Seppi? It’s definitely a possibility.
