    What was the results of Brisbane open round 1

    Posted on January 1, 2014 at 05:00 ET


    sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken.
    In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No.
    1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net,
    then shanked two other backhands several feet wide.
    I am able to do it at - its cool.
