ON TOUR: Smith Set for Australian Open Qualifying

Former Vol John-Patrick Smith will make his career Grand Slam debut Wednesday in the qualifying draw of the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Smith, who received one of eight of Tennis Australia's qualifying wildcards, faces Furrukh Dustov of Uzbekistan in the opening round Wednesday at 10 a.m. on Show Court 3.

Because of the great time difference, those who want to keep up with the action live in the United States can tune in Tuesday at 6 p.m. Eastern. Smith's match is scheduled to be live streamed by AO TV at this link.

Dustov is currently ranked No. 262 in the world. After just six months on the tour, Smith is already ranked No. 437.
