TOMAS BERDYCH remarkable achievement:
- owns 35 match wins in Melbourne Park, the most at any Grand Slam
Monday, January 18, 2016 - Sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych advanced to the second round with a 7-5, 6-1, 6-2 win over Yuki Bhambri in a straight-forward opener to his 50th consecutive major tournament. Bhambri was playing his first tour-level match since the last Australian Open.
The 30-year-old Berdych served 13 aces and had only one double-fault, and advanced beyond the first round for the 11th straight year at Melbourne Park. He reached the semifinals last year before losing to four-time finalist Andy Murray, his best run at the season's first Grand Slam tournament
