Australian Open 2013: American women advance early; top 10 men move to 3rd round

Bill Connelly reviews the first four days in Melbourne, and with all the biggest names still in action, previews the likely drama that's to come.

The first week of the 2013 Australian Open is flying by with only a few minor upsets in both the men's and women's draws through the first two rounds. Bill Connelly of SB Nation highlights the chalky first four days, which have likely set up plenty of quality matches in the later rounds. On the women's side, Americans both with familiar and new faces have looked strong, while the top 10 men have all moved to the third round, keeping lots of dramatic matchups on the table for the quarterfinals and semifinals.
