Nick Kyrgios collects code violation in easy Australian Open win

Nick Kyrgios is aiming for a consistent show in 2018 starting with the Australian Open tennis tournament

The Spaniard will play Leonardo Mayer of Argentina in the second round.

It forced him to skip the lead-up Brisbane International this month, and he only had a one-match workout at the exhibition Kooyong Classic in Melbourne ahead of the open. "Thank you very much to everybody here in Australia".

"He sent me a message, he said good luck". "If I did not feel myself ready I would not be here".

"I feel very confident in best-of-five matches".

"But, look, I was one point away".

"It's a positive start with a good result".

"I know I'm hitting the ball well", Kyrgios said.

"But I started with positive feelings". I can't expend too much energy on other things.

"Of course, there are things to improve". If I lose a match, at the end of the day it's a tennis match. "Victories are the most important thing now".

Troicki's highest ranking of world No.12 came in mid-2011 and he has been to the third round of the Australian Open four times, most recently in 2017.

"He knows the ups and downs that come in a Grand Slam match".

"Toni was not always in the [player's] box. In the Grand Slams, he's made the fourth round a lot of times", he said. I just have to move forward, believe in the team I have.

Toronto police say hijab-cutting incident didn't happen

Fresh from his breezy 6-1 6-2 6-4 win over Rogerio Dutra Silva in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday night, Kyrgios answered questions about his form before being blindsided by the overseas journalist.

Kyrgios heads into a second-round clash with Viktor Troicki - who denied locals an all-Australian match-up by beating Alex Bolt in five sets.

He wrapped up the opening two sets in 51 minutes and was never seriously troubled until the third set when the 100th ranked Dutra Silva provided some stiffer resistance.

"I'd like to get on and off the court as quick as possible ... save my body for the later rounds".

Love is in the air it seems in the @NickKyrgios camp.

Stosur has now been eliminated in the first round of her home grand slam three years in a row and the bigger picture barely makes for better reading.

After claiming the Brisbane title in the build-up to Melbourne, his first on home soil, there is real optimism that he might be able to mount a serious assault.

The 22-year-old Kyrgios has been doing something similar for the likes of Di Minaur and Popyrin, both of whom were with Kyrgios on Davis Cup duty late last year. Kyrgios later responded to the criticism by arguing that he "didn't owe the fans anything" and that fans could "just leave" if they were unhappy with his performance.

Kyrgios sees his foundation as helping him cope with competitive pressures on court.

Sock went down 6-1 7-6 (7-4) 5-7 6-3 to world number 41 Yuichi Sugita, and 16th seed John Isner lost 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-3 to Australia's Matthew Ebden.

"I think that first set is probably some of the best serving I've done in a long time", she said.

It always shaped as a tough opener for Stephens, who hasn't won a tour-level match since her Grand Slam breakthrough triumph at the U.S. Open previous year and facing a player ranked No. 34, two spots off being seeded for the first major of the season.
