James Duckworth has moved into the second round of the Australian Open 2012 with the best win of his career! Duckworth, 19, had a straight sets win over Estonian qualifier Jurgen Zopp.
He made light work of Zopp, a 23-year-old ranked No.148, winning 6-3 6-4 6-4 in 99 minutes on Show Court 3.
“I’ve always dreamt about playing the Australian Open in front of my home fans and my family and friends.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling.”
“I was pretty nervous walking out. There were lots of people out there,” Duckworth said.
“I managed to hide my feelings quite well and, you know, I’m really happy with the win.”
Duckworth now faces Serbian No.9 seed Janko Tipsarevic in the second round.
