Rising British tennis star Andrew Murray has booked his place in the second round of the Adelaide International but not without suffering a scare against Italian qualifier Paolo Lorenzi.
Indeed, Murray lost the first set against in his first match of 2006 as 24-year-old Lorenzi, who had ousted Murray's fellow Brit Jamie Delgado in preliminaries, looked to take control of the match.
But the 18-year-old Scot produced an immediate comeback at Memorial Drive, winning the next two sets to claim a 3-6 6-0 6-2 first-round victory.
The British number three knows that if he beats Berdych, who saw off Argentinian Agustin Calleri 6-4 6-7 6-4 in the first round, a possible encounter with former world number one Lleyton Hewitt awaits in the third round.
