Controversial Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios is through to the next round of the Australian Open after straight sets victory over Viktor Triocki.
The home favourite came through 7-5, 6-4. 7-6 in an eventful game which included the umpire being hit on the head and a broken microphone! James Keothavong was the man umpiring the game but even he managed to stay in good spirits joking: "It's not been my day, has it?".
Kyrgios was incredibly impressive today, it will be interesting to see how far he can go.
Not good news for British tennis fans as Heather Watson is out of the Australian Open after losing to Yulia Putintseva in the first round.
It was a straight sets defeat for Watson, who lost 5-7, 6-7, agonisingly throwing away a set point in the second set tie-break.
It was always going to be a tough test for the Brit playing against Kazakhstani who was ranked as highly as 27th last year.
British number one Johanna Konta is into the second round of the Australian Open following her 6-3, 6-1 win over American Madison Brengle.
The draw looked tricky on paper with Konta having lost three of her previous four matches against the number 90 seed but it was plain sailing for the Briton.
Konta now faces another American in the shape of Bernarda Pera in round two on Thursday, ranked 123 in the world.
World number one Simona Halep warmed up for the Australian Open by winning the Shenzhen Open in China, but she was made to work by Katerina Siniakova, as Halep lost the first set 6-1 before she found her best form and steamrollered her opponent to win the second and third sets 6-2 and 6-0, respectively.
Andy Murray has this morning confirmed that he will play no part in the Australian Open later this month.
The former world number one has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon last year due to a reoccurring hip injury and as a result, has dropped to 16th in the rankings.
The bad news continues for Brits down under as Johanna Konta was forced to withdraw from her Brisbane Open quarter-final against Elina Svitolina after suffering an injury to her right hip.
Johanna Konta and Kyle Edmund are both through into the quarter-finals of the Brisbane International after impressive wins.
Konta beat Ajla Tomljanović, a Croatian 24-year-old, in three sets after going a set down. The Brit came through 4-6. 6-1, 6-4 to book her place in the last eight.
Edmund played well in a closely contested match against Denis Shapovalov that included two tie-breaks. He eventually won 6-7, 7-6 and 4-6.
Any hope of Andy Murray returning to action this week has been tempered by the news that the Scot has withdrawn from the Brisbane International due to a hip injury.
Murray is in Australia ahead of the first major of the season in Melbourne for the Australian Open but it'll be a race against time to be fit.
French tennis ace Marian Bartoli has taken to social media to announce that she'll be coming out of retirement to join the WTA Tour in 2018.
The 2013 Wimbledon champion has been a regular in the commentary box since her retiring later that summer, but she told Eurosport viewers that she aims to be back on court by March for the Miami Open.
