Australian Open 2013 Order of Play: Day 4

Kimiko Date-KrummThe 2013 Australian Open singles events have 16 men’s and 16 women’s matches to be played to complete the 2nd round, after which just 32 players will remain in contention for the title in both the men’s and women’s draws. In this post OnCourt Advantage lists the order of play for the fourth day of main draw singles matches (see below) to make it easier for you to know who plays whom and when.

On Day 4 the bottom half of the men’s draw featuring Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Juan Martin del Potro and the top half of the women’s draw starring Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams, play their 2nd round matches. The letters in brackets after each player’s name is the prefix for the country that player represents. WTA denotes women’s matches and ATP denotes men’s matches.

The 1994 Australian Open singles semi finalist Kimiko DATE-KRUMM is pictured above prior to the contact point between the ball and the racquet for this forehand volley at Wimbledon in 2011. The 42-year-old became the oldest player to win a singles match at the Australian Open in the Open-era when she upset No.12 Nadia Petrova in the 1st round.

Date-Krumm is the current No.100 and has reached the quarter finals or better at all four Grand Slam. The 1.63m Japanese star says she returned to the tour in 2008 purely for the love of tennis and has no targets after an 11-year retirement. Her highest ranking was No.4 which she first achieved on 13 November 1995.
