Impressive performance from Ireland’s James MgGee this morning defeating Vincent Millot in straight sets 6-2 6-4 . The match was scheduled second on court this morning in Australia with play commencing at 11pm Irish time. However with the score poised at 2-1 40-30 the match was called off due to rain and didn’t resume until much later in the day.
