Really disappointing loss for Sammy, who fell in straight sets to PEHK. But you know, you really shouldn't be playing a tournament the week before a Grand Slam. Jarkko Niemenen is also out, having to retire in his match. Sam says he just got to Melbourne on Sunday and only had a 30 minute hit before taking the court. He couldn't get used to the court speed. Tough luck.
But in happier news, DB Chuck is out, losing to one of Sven's charges, Evgeny Koralev. Nice win for Koralev who I've always had a soft spot for because I think he's adorable. And I always felt bad for him seeing as how he's Anna K's cousin. If you think life was hard for Dinara in the locker room, imagine what it must be like for him.
