Nick Kyrgios has copped a nightmare Australian Open draw, punished for being unseeded at a grand slam event for the first time in more than three years.

Both immensely talented Australians are ranked between 50 and 100 but it's Kyrgios, usually seeded at the majors, who the world's top players wanted to avoid in the early rounds.

Tomic hit the ball between his legs while still bouncing another ... and it totally stumped Kyrgios and the umpire.

In the opening match of the Kooyong Classic in Melbourne, 83rd-ranked Tomic - who bounced back after on-and-off court issues to win his first ATP title since 2015 at Chengdu in September - overcame Sock in three tight sets.

"I don't know what the Australian Open has done, but it is bad", Tomic said post-match.

How will Matt LaFleur coach Aaron Rodgers? See Ryan, Matt
Murphy said the council talked about a sense of complacency that had settled in among certain players this past season. General manager Brian Gutekunst said once they zeroed in on LaFleur, they had Rodgers reach out to him.

Tomic failed to qualify for last year's Australian Open, before copping a barrage of criticism when he said was only concerned with making money. "He won a title a year ago and it looks like he is carrying a bit of momentum which is good to see... he looks happy, he looks healthy".

Tomic's first set was nearly flawless, while Kyrgios, who made a second round exit at Brisbane last week, looked a little underdone.

"He can make a run at the Australian Open, for sure". "It is great to see him back out here as I know he was going through some rough times", world number 51 Kyrgios, who himself has struggled for consistency, added.

Kyrgios said he was happy to see Tomic back in form after missing the Australian Open previous year when his ranking plummeted.

"I'll worry about that (the Open) come Sunday or Monday, whenever we're finished here", Barty said after storming into the semi-finals on Thursday with a straight-sets defeat of world No.12 Elise Mertens. "You never want to see a talent like that go down and keep being down". "I think they're pretty cheap from what I've heard".
