    Ninth seed Kevin Anderson advanced to the second round after rallying to upend British wildcard James Ward. The South African fired 16 aces en route to a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory in an hour and 49 minutes. Anderson ended the first-round effort with two service breaks and 87% of his first-service points won.

    He will take on Sergiy Stakhovsky for a place in the quarterfinal. The Ukranian defeated Italy’s Flavio Cipolla in the opening round, 6-4, 6-1.

The Croatian veteran tallied 22 aces through to a 6-3, 6-2 success in just 65 minutes. Karlovic, who completed the match without facing a break point, held the former World No. 1 to 7 points on the return.

    He is slated to face Yen-Hsun Lu or Igor Kunitsyn in the second round.

i watched this match. dr ivo was clinical and gave hewitt no chance whatsoever.

grass court tennis is so boooring. at least karlovic has some charisma but with the likes of berdych it is bound to be dull.
