Australian Open Men’s singles round 1 results Day 2 – Jan. 14

MELBOURNE (Sporting Alert) — Results and scores from the first round of the 2014 Australian Open Tennis tournament – Men’s singles matches on Tuesday.

Top seed Rafa Nadal of Spain easily progressed from the first round after his opponent Bernard Tomic of Australia was forced to retire after just one set. Nadal led Tomic, 6-4 after the first before the Australian, who struggled from the first minute of the contest, retired hurt.

Nadal offered some sympathy to his fellow tennis colleague, who was booed after saying: “I can’t do it.”

“I just want to say for Bernard, I hope he really gets better very soon,” said Nadal. “It’s very tough to go out in a tournament like this at home.

“I feel really sorry for Bernard. I was in that situation (before). There’s no reason you have to continue (if injured).”

Elsewhere on Tuesday, No. 4 Andy Murray of Britain eased past Go Soeda (Japan) 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 in his first round game, while there were wins also for No. 5 Juan Martin Del Potro (Argentina), No. 6 Roger Federer (Switzerland) and No. 10 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France).

However, American 13th-seeded John Isner went out 6-2, 7-6 (6)  to Martin Klizan of Slovakia after he was forced to  retire.

Home favourite Lleyton Hewitt of Australia went out in round one after losing 7-6 (4), 6-3, 5-7, 5-7, 7-5 to No. 24 Andreas Seppi of Italy.
