Nadal in the pink as Sharapova hits all-time low at Australian Open

AUSTRALIAN OPEN '20 A look at Serena other things to know

Her 2018 started with a couple of big jolts and early shocks, and between necessity and practicality, perhaps, it was her old coach Conchita Martinez - the former World No 1 and the coach of the Spanish Davis Cup team, herself an Australian Open finalist, that Muguruza turned to for help previous year.

The good form continued in the opening round where Novak Djokovic defeated Jan-Lennard Struff in straight sets.

The Spaniard boasts an impressive 19 Grand Slam wins, though only has one of them at the Australian Open - which came in 2009.

"If I'm being totally honest I had a real bad mental performance last time", Evans said.

But tennis great, turned commentator, Jim Courier asked Nadal what his proudest moment was in 2019 after listing off his insane achievements.

Watson has won only two main-draw Grand Slam matches in the past two years, with just one victory in her past six appearances in the main draw in Melbourne. I try to tell her I'm somebody, you know. A forehand victor gave Nadal a break and 2-0 lead and he took the opening five games before Dellien got on the board, but the Spaniard closed out a 52-minute first set. "The great thing about Grand Slams is that you always have a day off in between matches, and it's not the first time I'm in this situation, so I'm looking forward to the next challenge". I was a lot more focused.

"I'm just so happy I didn't have any setbacks (in the pre-season)".

"I need to take care with my answers now".

'We have to be prepared for the worst' with coronavirus, expert says
A new coronavirus identified in China has proven contagious between humans, according to a report from the Associated Press. Analysis of the genetic code of the new virus shows it is more closely related to Sars than any other human coronavirus .

The Spaniard next plays either Argentine Federico Delbonis or Portugal's Joao Sousa and said he never looked further ahead than the next match.

Novak Djokovic has eased into the second round of the 2020 Australian Open in Melbourne.

Fifth seed Dominic Thiem was also a straight-sets victor, beating Adrian Mannarino 6-3 7-5 6-2, while ninth seed Roberto Bautista Agut and former champion Stan Wawrinka successfully reached round two. And he ended the year at number 1 in the world.

It was more hard than the score seemed, since Dellien, the first Bolivian to play in the tournament, kept the world number 1 off the court for more than two hours before falling 6-2, 6-3 and 6 -0.

"I was really nervous for today's match".

In the women's event, while Serena beat Potapova 6-0, 6-3 in 58 minutes, defending champ Naomi Osaka began her Australian Open title defence by dismantling unseeded Czech Marie Bouzkova. Milos Raonic returned to play two games to finish off Lorenzo Giustino 6-2, 6-1, 6-3.

Play got underway on all courts on time although the Bureau of Meteorology has forecast heavy rain throughout the day with a high of just 21C (69.8°F).
