But it was another Swede that made the headlines; former champion Stefan Edberg has agreed to join team Federer for ten weeks. Was fun to see him on Rod Laver arena warming up Federer.
Federer then played an Australian wildcard player and won quite comfortable in three sets.
Last game I saw was Australian player Lleyton Hewitt (making his eighteen Australian Open tournament) playing Italian Seppi. Hewitt showed a big fighting spirit which is his trademark and managed to come back from two sets down to actually have a match ball. But despite having almost all the fans supporting Hewitt, Seppi proved to be the strongest player and won the match.
