Alex De Minaur faces a tough first round assignment Alex De Minaur faces a tough first round assignment

The 31-year-old Spaniard was never under any threat wrapping up the match 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 against his 37-year-old opponent in one hour and 37 minutes.

Nadal needs to reach the quarter-finals to be certain of retaining his world number one ranking, with Federer breathing down his neck. If (Goffin) he is fresh, and I believe that he is, he's very complete player.

Like the other players competing on Monday, Nadal was tight-lipped about Friday's eventful player meeting. "It is a positive start with a good result".

"I just tried to be compact, focused, used every opportunity I had and tried to save some energy", said the Bulgarian, a semi-finalist a year ago. "I was disappointed that I couldn't make Brisbane, I finished late but I needed a little bit more time".

His Dominican opponent gave his best to the delight of the crowd and managed to produce some fearless back-to-the-wall tennis, but ultimately he was unable to make an impression in one of the biggest matches of his career. That's most important thing for me now.

The Daily Mail reported that, after asking ATP and tournament officials to leave, player council chief Novak Djokovic addressed his fellow players and called for them to set up a separate union.

"This year we are here, that's all I can say", the 16-time grand slam champion added when asked about his future career prospects.

Elsewhere, Philipp Kohlschreiber (27) fell at the first hurdle in a topsy-turvy 6-3 2-6 6-0 1-6 6-2 reverse to Yoshihito Nishioka, and Lucas Pouille (18) lost 6-4 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (8-6) to Ruben Bemelmans. "But now is the moment, for me personally, to play tennis".

Kyrgios received a code violation for swearing at a spectator who he felt was being too noisy but there were no alarms on court.

Victory for Nadal came on an opening day at the Australian Open when several seeds exited both the men's and women's singles draws.

"Happy for the start, of course", Nadal, who lost last year's final in a five-set classic to Roger Federer, told reporters.

In the match, the top seed coasted through the sets and was always in control.

Sock was beaten inside four sets - 6-1 7-6 (7-4) 5-7 6-3 by Yuichi Sugita - and Isner was also beaten in four, going down 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-3 to Aussie Matthew Ebden.
