HILARIOUS! An Italian journalist was caught by none other than the eagle-eyed @RafaelNadal sleeping while he was giving his take on the victory over James Duckworth in Melbourne. https://t.co/7VRW0lbEcm

Rafael Nadal ties Stefan Edberg for 3rd in #AusOpen wins among Open Era men. With Andy Murray retiring (and one win would break a big tie for him), Federer, Djokovic and Nadal will remain 1/2/3 for a loooong time.
Rafael Nadal was in the middle of an intense press conference after his first round win over James Duckworth... and then he spotted a journo getting a little shuteye. 😴
'It's not interesting today.'
I make that:
that have all spoken up to say that the ATP should stick with Chris Kermode. https://t.co/WtN5XSBGky
Massive win for WA’s Matt Ebden, following on from Astra Sharma’s win earlier on day one. Ebden dropped the first set to Struff but fought back to take it in four. He meets Rafael Nadal in the second round. #AusOpen
Rafael Nadal will face an Aussie player for the second match in a row as Matthew Ebden d. Jan-Lennard Struff 1-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the second round #AusOpen
And he has a potential third round match against... Alex de Minaur.
