Background: Tennis...and the top-seeded Argentina Guillermo Vilas is one of the few favourites to have survived the opening rounds of the Australian Open Championships being played at Kooyong in Melbourne. It was entertaining tennis from the start of the tournament. In the first round Australian player Ross Case came back from two sets down to win a five set marathon against his less experienced opponent, Frenchman Yannick Noah. ATN Channel Seven's Ted Ryan describes the highlights of the match.
