British pair Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins reach round three of the men's doubles
Friday 20 January 2012
British pair Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins cruised into round three of the men's doubles at the Australian Open today to set up a showdown with the Bryan brothers.
Fleming and Hutchins, the 15th seeds, proved too strong for the Russian duo of Alex Bogomolov Jnr and Igor Kunitsyn, winning 6-0 6-3 in just 55 minutes.
Their next match promises to be more difficult, though, as they come up against Mike and Bob Bryan, the top seeds and three-time defending champions in Melbourne.
In the mixed, Jamie Murray and his Chinese partner Shuai Peng lost 6-3 5-7 (10/5) to Abigail Spears of the United States and Mariusz Fyrstenberg of Poland.
