The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year, has begun. The second day's play is going to continue on Tuesday after legendary player Rafael Nadal reached the second round. Russia's Andrey Rublev, seeded fifth, has already made it to the second round. In the first round match, he defeated G Major 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.
Apart from this, second seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia is going to continue playing against Laxonen of Switzerland. World number one Novak Djokovic has not played in this tournament. Due to the cancellation of his visa, he has been sent back to Serbia. In such a situation, Medvedev would like to win the tournament and make his name a second Grand Slam. Earlier, Medvedev had also won the US Open last year. American 22nd-ranked John Isner will also face compatriot Cressey and 11th-seeded Sinner will face Portugal's Sousa. Earlier, 13th seeded Argentina's Schwartzman had reached the second round. He defeated Krajinovic 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 in the first round.
Spain's R Bautista Agut seeded 15th, defeated Travaglia 7-6, 6-4, 5-7, 7-1. However, Bautista had to work very hard for this victory. 27th seed Marin Cilic also advanced to the second round after beating Gomez 6-3, 6-1, 6-2.
