"I didn't expect to play this kind of match, I prefer to watch on TV", joked the 29-year-old, a twice quarter-finalist in Melbourne, during his post-match interview on court.

"The sixth game of (the second set) set was the one that did the damage", Jim Courier said on Channel 7 of Monfils.

A court temperature reading of 69C was recorded during the match between Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils, which the Serb eventually won in four sets over almost three excruciating hours.

Australia's 18th seed Ashleigh Barty also took 3 sets to get past Italian hitter Camila Giorgi, in a late night match that had local Aussie fans ecstatic.

The fifth-seeded Austrian improved his five-set record at Grand Slams to 3-3 with the win.

Wimbledon victor Garbine Muguruza, defending champion Roger Federer and six-time Australian victor Novak Djokovic were also scheduled to play their second-round matches Thursday.

"I did my job in two sets against someone that's been troubling in the past for me", Sharapova said.

"Recovery is not something I worry about with him", said Agassi. "But I got through it". Maria Sharapova has advanced to the third round, beating Anastasija Sevastova 6-1, 7-6 (4) as the temperatures begin to rise at the Australian Open.

United States government shutdown looms, lawmakers in hectic negotiations
The senator condemned Republican leaders in Congress, who he said left Democrats out of discussions on the spending legislation. House Speaker Paul Ryan immediately summoned reporters to try to pin the blame on top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY .

The five-time major victor advanced to the third round with a 6-1, 7-6 (4) win over No 14-seeded Anastasija Sevastova. "I think it was the hardest I have [experienced]". I feel like I transported myself into the TV this year and I'm finding myself on Rod Laver Arena competing. "I was checking the tickets to fly back".

Wawrinka wasn't sure if he was ready to play the Australian Open after left knee surgery a year ago put him behind in his preparations.

The extreme elements made it a survival of the fittest with Monfils looking the worse for wear early before Djokovic had enough in the tank to win on his fourth match point in a gruelling eight-minute final game. You have to take into consideration different angles before making a big call like that.

French eighth seed Garcia spent three gruelling sets in the sun against Marketa Vondrousova before limping to a 6-7 (3/7), 6-2, 8-6 victory.

Ninth seed Johanna Konta tumbled out of the second round in blazing sunshine and windy conditions, after a defeat by World number 123 Bernarda Pera.

American Sam Querrey is out after losing his second-round match 6-4, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-2 to 80th-ranked Marton Fucsovics of Hungary.

The German endured a miserable 2017, slipping from world number one to outside the top 20, but she has been revitalised at the start of this season and is yet to lose a match.

Among the leading men advancing were 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, No. 19 Tomas Berdych, No. 21 Albert Ramos and No. 5 Dominic Thiem, who rallied to beat 190th-ranked American qualifier Denis Kudla 6-7 (6), 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.
