Injured Rafael Nadal knocked out of Australian Open second round

The first round of the 2023 Australian Open is well underway, with Cameron Norrie getting off to a great start with victory over Luca Van Assche. Jack Draper was handed the short straw when he was drawn against two-time champion Rafael Nadal and was unable to cause an upset in Melbourne.

However, Nadal then lost his second round match to Mackenzie McDonald 4-6 3-6 5-7, after battling through with a hip injury. This is the Spaniard’s earliest Australian Open exit since 2016.

Andy Murray will feature in the second round after success in his opening match and faces Australia’s Thanasi Kokkinakis. Nine-time winner Novak Djokovic made his way to the second round after beating Roberto Carballes Baena 6-3 6-4 6-0. The Serbian will be hunting for his tenth Australian Open title after he was forced to sit out of last year’s tournament as he hadn’t had the Covid-19 vaccination.

Raducanu beat Germany’s Tamara Korpatsch in two sets but lost 6-3 7-6 to America’s Coco Gauff in her second round match.

Murray is yet to win the Australian Open and will be looking to add to his three Grand Slam titles, however it has been seven years since he even reached the final in Melbourne. The Scot has placed as runner-up in the tournament on five occasions but is yet to take home the trophy. Meanwhile, Daniil Medvedev will be looking to claim his first Australian Open title after reaching the final of the past two tournaments, before enduring defeat against Djokovic and Nadal.

Here are the current favourites to win the Australian Open, via Sky Bet.

When is the Australian Open final?

The first three rounds of the Australian Open will take place across this week, before the quarter-finals get underway next Tuesday (January 24). The semi-finals will be played the next day (January 27), while the final is scheduled for Sunday January 29. Thankfully, fans in the UK won’t have to get up in the middle of the night to watch it as it is due to begin at 8:30am UK time.

The men’s singles tournament has been dominated by Djokovic, Nadal and Roger Federer in previous years, with the trio picking up all but two of the trophies since 2004. Despite only claiming two titles, Nadal has reached a total of six finals at the Australian Open and is the current defending champion.
