Under the rules, the first player to win at least 10 points by a two-point margin takes the match.

"I'm not entirely sure what I will be doing but I think there will be more things on than the Australian Open draw", he said with a laugh.

"The knee felt slightly more stiff than usual, maybe that's from a first match", he said.

In this instance, the ball did seem to touch the ground before it was hit.

He is also relaxed about his form heading into the first Grand Slam of the season next week.

Stick with me for the match - the players will be out soon, with Marin Čilić and Kevin Anderson's preceding match having just ended in the Croat's favour, 6-3, 4-6, 15-13, following a lengthy match tie-break. I need to be healthy to have a good year.
