This morning, for those of us in a European time zone, the 19 time grand slam champion started his campaign to defend his title against former Brit Aljaž Bedene with a straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, victory. "Don't they get eaten at the end?"

As the crowd broke into rapturous applause, on strode Ferrell, saying in his signature booming voice: "In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, it's great to be here with two tennis legends, Roger Federer and John McKintosh". "Is that true?" Ferrell asked.

Struff looked good in his opening match and clearly has some shotmaking ability that's needed to counter somebody like Federer. There are guys like Novak, other guys who they're going to listen to of course, the Aussies.

Having arrived in Melbourne 12 months ago not knowing what to expect from himself following a six-month break to recuperate his knee, this time around Federer is confident in both mind and body.

Once the scheduling issues had been set aside, Struff's towering frame and powerful forehand should have given him enough weapons to keep Federer honest, but the 27-year-old found himself without answers to the Swiss' serve. The No. 2 player int he world faces German Jan-Lennard Struff at 7 a.m. Wednesday in a Round of 64 matchup in Melbourne.
