After missing the Australian Open last year the Argentine looks like he's ready to make a run.

The 2014 Australian Open champion defeated Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (7-2).

That appeared to knock Sharapova off her stride, but only momentarily, surviving a wobble by reeling off four successive games to reach the next round, sealing her win with an ace. "So that's the good news". 'There may have been a few who knew about this, but most didn't'.

His first serve speed, too, averaged around 114 miles per hour, higher than his figure when he won the US Open in 2011 and Madrid Masters in 2016, for example. The 19-time major winner has been met on court after victories here previously by tennis greats Laver, John McEnroe and Jim Courier.

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley defended the decision to invite Sharapova to the draw ceremony.

The ATP refused to comment, while Tennis Australia had no immediate reaction.

"It's always really cool to go up against the best in the world", Bouchard said.

"It felt great to be back on the court and compete again", he said. He may play in Acapulco or Dubai at the end of February, but it depends on how his body reacts to the official matches. "Very, very solid performance".

Djokovic's surprise intervention follows on the heels of unfortunate remarks by Bernard Tomic, the temperamental Australian who lost his final qualifying match on Sunday and turned on waiting courtside reporters with a sarcastic reference to his own obsession with money.

"ATP is an association of players and tournaments".

Total prize money for the Australian Open reached 55 million Australian dollars ($42 million) this year, a 10 percent increase over 2017. You've taken things out of the context.

"I wanted to enjoy the moment. just wanted to get done". This is one of the places where we get together. "I expect that from myself". There were no talks about a boycott or anything like that.

A story in the Daily Mail claimed the former world number one, who is the leader of the ATP's player council, stood up and addressed the meeting with a lawyer, with subjects including setting up a separate players' union and pushing for more prize money.

The No. 1-ranking changed seven times in 2017, with five different women assuming top spot-three for the first time. I think I was absent for one month maximum ever since I started playing professional tennis, so I never missed a Grand Slam. Some things I feel good about.

Others in action on Monday include seventh-seeded Jelena Ostapenko, who meets Francesca Schiavone in a match featuring current vs. former French Open champions, No. 2-ranked Caroline Wozniacki, who opens against Mihaela Buzarnescu, and U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens against Zhang Shuai. Gojowcyz is a tricky opponent on a hard court so it won't be easy but I don't think Zverev will have any issues.

The second seed cruised to a 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 win in 1hr 39min and will next play German Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round.
