Key posts

That’s a wrap – thanks for joining us

It was a frenetic day of tennis as the men’s and women’s singles first round matches were all wrapped up. On the men’s side, the results were largely devoid of surprises with stars such as Daniil Medvedev, fellow Russian Andrey Rublev, Stefanos Tsitsipas,and Australia’s Alex de Minaur all winning through. And, in a popular result, Andy Murray – playing his first Australian Open for three years – won a tough five-setter.

Similarily, in the women’s draw, top players Aryna Sabalenka, Iga Swiatek, Garbine Muguruza and US Open champion Emma Raducanu all won through. Australian wildcards Sam Stosur (in her final Australian Open) and Maddison Inglis both had impressive victories.

Good night and catch you tomorrow.

A Kyrgios ’tweener … of course!
