Former world number one and Serbian tennis maestro Novak Djokovic celebrated his long-awaited return to the grand slam with a thrilling straight sets victory over American Donald Young at the Australian Open on Tuesday.

"Second serve was very, very good", Djokovic said.

Sharapova regathered and was not to be denied as she hit a scarcely believable forehand crosscourt victor on the run to get to 5-2. "I mean, I'm feeling the same like yesterday. I love coming here".

"The 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic denied all rumours of him trying to convince the players during ATP tour for demanding an increase in the players" share of tournament revenue.

Madison Brengle of the United States lost to Johanna Konta 6-3, 6-1.

Eighth seed Caroline Garcia eventually made it into the second round after stumbling in the second set against Carina Witthoeft before taking the match 7-5 6-3. Djokovic was playing his first competitive game since Wimbledon after missing the second half of 2017 with an elbow injury.

"It's great to be back".

"I know that you guys are trying to take this forward several steps", Djokovic told the media.

Sharapova could next play 14th-seeded Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia, who beat the Russian at last year's U.S. Open.

Sharapova needed more than three hours to avenge her US Open defeat to Sevastova when the pair last met in Beijing four months ago and was in no mood to take her time again as the mercury rose. He also looked physically spent toward the end of the fourth set before rallying to dominate the tiebreaker and close out the match. I really believe that there is plenty of time later on the year to speak about things.
