THE Australian Open is just a week away and British No.2 Aljaz Bedene is aiming to head into the Grand Slam on a high with another solid showing in the final build-up event.
Bedene, beaten in the semis of the Chennai Open on Saturday, has a tough start to his Auckland Open campaign tonight when he faces Sam Querrey.
The American won their only previous meeting, at Queens Club in 2013, and is 5-7 at marthonbet while a Bedene win pays 11-8 at William Hill. The last meeting went the distance and another three setter is 11-8 at Skybet.
Defending champ Jiri Vesely also has his work cut out against world No.25 Roberto Batista Agut and the likes of Fabio Fognini and Vasek Pospisil are also in Auckland action.
