France's Alizé Cornet will have a tough task ahead of her when playing three-time US Open champion Kim Clijsters. Maybe more support from Andy Roddick might help.
Before the start of the tournament Laurent Orsini, who is Cornet's new coach, had Andy Roddick tell some encouraging word for his number one supporter.
At the start of the Nice native career, her first coach Pierre Bouteyre also asked Roddick an autograph for her student. Five years later this might be the reason why Cornet managed to beat the 26th seed Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in the second round, her best result since the 2009 US Open, where she also reach the third round.
However, Cornet might have to need more than words to find inspiration in order to beat the World number 3. Nadal, Isner and Murray will also highlight Day 6 at the Australian Open.
