Home favourite Nick Kyrgios will face Gilles Simon in the second round of men's singles in 2020 Australian Open. Kyrgios, seeded 23rd at the home slam event, huffed-puffed his way into the 2nd round with two of the three sets in his opening round match against Lorenzo Sonego going into tie-breakers. But Kyrgios prevailed and progressed with a 6-2, 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-1) victory. Simon, on the other, spent little sweat in beating Pablo Cuevas of Argentina (6-1, 6-3, 6-3) to set up a 2nd round date with local boy Kyrgios.
