Tournament favourite Daniil Medvedev continues his Australian Open quest against Maxime Cressy.
With no Novak Djokovic, the Russian is strongly fancied to get his hands on a second Grand Slam title in Melbourne.

Top Match: Alex de Minaur v Jannik Sinner
Alex de Minaur is flying the flag for the home nation, and it’s a surprise this has not been left to the evening session. Still, De Minaur will have a lot of support on Rod Laver Arena.
Jannik Sinner is looking to rediscover his best form, but he will have to fight a determined opponent and a rowdy crowd.
Potential Upset: Taylor Fritz v Stefanos Tsitsipas
Alex Zverev was bundled out of the tournament on Sunday, and Stefanos Tsitsipas will be mindful of following suit.
If the Greek is not on his mettle, he could be in for a bumpy ride as Fritz has looked good so far. A battle will not faze the American, as he beat Roberto Bautista Agut over five sets on Saturday.
