It will mark the first ever encounter between the two athletes. Nicknamed Tobi, Toppi or Klaus, Rafa’s next opponent started playing tennis when he was five years old and uses a double-handed backhand. Kamke was voted ATP newcomer of the year in 2010, having climbed from world no.254 to 67. He posted a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Tunisian wild card Malek Jaziri without dropping serve to book his place in the R16.



  1. Rafa had an absolutely superb 2013! It will be interesting to see whether he can keep up his incredible run at the Australian Open. Another final against Djokovic would be breathtaking!
