Milos looking graceful in Brisbane for 2013 opener, warming up for Aussie Open

We have a small glimpse of Milos' form as he starts the season in Australia, playing in the Brisbane International starting later this week after a first round bye.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be able to catch anything other than live scores for this one as it's not being televised.  Time zones would make this one a difficult one to follow anyway.

It's still a few days before Milos will see action in Brisbane.  If Milos is able to play consistently he should have no trouble before the semi-finals, where he's expected to face Gilles Simon.  A final versus Andy Murray would be a nice treat to start us off!

2013 Season Opener: Brisbane 250

Looks like Milos has chosen not to defend his title from Chennai last year: he'll be second seed at the Brisbane 250, with Andy Murray, last year's winner, holding up the other half. Behind them are Gilles Simon and Alexandr Dolgopolov; then Nishikori, Mayer, Melzer and Klizan. It's a competitive field for this warm-up to the Aussie Open.

Draw [Dec.29]: as expected, Milos draws #2. Possible route to the Final:  1) Bye 2) G.Dimitrov 3) J.Melzer 4) G.Simon 5) A.Murray.
