Asked about his fitness, he said: "It's normal that beginnings are tough, but every day helps and every day makes me feel better, makes me feel more confident".

Andy Murray almost pulled off quite a comeback before losing 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-2 to 22nd-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open on Monday, his first opening-round exit from a Grand Slam tournament in a decade.

Nadal had promised to unveil a remodelled, improved serve at the first Grand Slam of the year and the new action was going smoothly until he served for the match at 5-3 in the third set only for Duckworth to break to love. "Today he went on court with the determination to not play tennis the way I understand tennis", Nadal said.

"And in general terms, I am happy about the victory of today against, as I said before, a very hard opponent to play".

"(It) is not a negative point.

"So that's an important victory because it's the first victory in a while, and at the same time, because that gives me the chance to be on court again". Not at all. Believe me.

"That's what I needed today". "And he played smart and he played well". What Isner failed to do for the first time in his career was beat an American foe at a Grand Slam tournament, and now the highest-ranked man from the U.S.is gone from the Australian Open.

United States number one John Isner was sent crashing out of the first round of the competition by compatriot Reilly Opelka 7-6 (4) 7-6 (6) 6-7 (4) 7-6 (5) in a battle of two of the game's tallest players.

Isner was seeded No. 9, was a semifinalist at Wimbledon a year ago and had been 9-0 in all-U.S. contests at the Slams. "It's very hard to start after an injury - I know it very well".

"I mean, there is no time for that, I'm sorry to say ... when you're playing the first round of a Grand Slam", she said.

Fifth-seeded Kevin Anderson won his first match at Melbourne Park since 2015 when he beat Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1.

Opelka will play 102nd ranked Italian journeyman Thomas Fabbiano for a place in the third round.
