Australian Open Results- Day 2

Rafael Nadal put on an electrifying show Tuesday night in Melbourne (Monday morning for us in the states) when he made an absolute mockery of Christophe Rochus. Nadal hit 47 winners to Rochus' 7 and he got off the court in 1 hour and 15 minutes. Both Williams sisters also put on impressive performances.

Thank God Guillermo Canas survived his match against Dieter KIndlmann. It was poor day for the Argentinean players. A total contrast compare how did they fared in Day 1.

If you don't mind, what do you think about the prospect of Juan Martin Del Potro and David Nalbandian in the second round?
