Halep survives date with Destanee in opening round

Elina Svitolina

Where can I watch the live streaming of the matches? "A lot of changing, I feel". So my ankles are not good.

"I don't feel pressure".

The Spaniard did have a tune-up, with organisers obliging his request to play a game under match conditions.

But while de Minaur, 18, is in career-best form after semi-final appearances in Brisbane and Sydney, the big-serving Czech has a strong pedigree, as he showed in winning the Tie Break Tens event against Rafael Nadal on Wednesday.

This is important, not just as the season's first major, but because it will define the year for most of the sport's big names, especially the limping ones.

"It hasn't been 100 per cent yet healed". Ninth seed Konta's clinical performance raised hopes that she could be a genuine title contender in a wide-open women's draw at Melbourne Park.

After finally appearing to win the grand battle against his mental demons, Nick Kyrgios is poised to conquer the men's game. "The way they serve and the speed they hit the ball you can be out of the tournament in 45 minutes".

But his confidence is high and he warned he could still go far.

The world number one fell awkwardly at the start of the second set and required a medical timeout, later revealing to have felt significant discomfort.

Her sister Venus, who lost the all-Williams Australian Open final last year, has a tough opener against Belinda Bencic - who combined with Federer to win the Hopman Cup for Switzerland recently. The 20-year-old heads into the year's first Grand Slam ranked fourth in the world, courtesy of five titles last year.

The opening hour of the match had clearly taken its toll on the young Australian, who is ranked 193rd in the world.

I just want to wait for tomorrow [Wednesday] to see how I wake up.

"You see how physical it is on the court, and then you see the traveling and the challenge of our sport versus others in terms of time zone changes and the variables in conditions", said Justin Gimelstob, an ATP board member and former player and coach.

The highlight of the 13th-seeded Stephen's autumn came off the court when she graduated with a degree in communications from Indiana University East through a discounted online program arranged with the school by the WTA.

"The depth in women's tennis I really do believe in the last few years has gotten so strong", she added.

The Australian Open will definitely not have a repeat champion this year with Serena Williams remaining on maternity leave after the birth of her first child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., in September.

Picking a women's singles champion at the Australian Open could resemble a lucky dip this year with Serena Williams' continued absence again leaving the door ajar.

Unseeded women have won two of the last three majors: Ostapenko at the French Open and Sloane Stephens at the U.S. Open.

Halep is also in the same half as Garbine Muruguza, the Wimbledon champion.

Although she assumed complete control in the second, the Romanian went over on her ankle and required heavy strapping to continue.

Today, Kostyuk will face wildcard Olivia Rogowska in a bid to become the first 15-year-old to reach the third round of any Slam since Nicole Vaidisova, who beat Maria Vento-Kabchi and Jelena Kostanic at the 2005 Australian Open before falling to Lindsay Davenport.
