"My knee feel goods", he said. "Thank you very much to everybody here in Australia". "I feel relaxed", he said. "I want to take care of business one round at a time".

The 33-year-old overcame an early mini-break to have a match point at 6-5, but played too tentatively, allowing Puig to level the match. "I know that I do things that people say are the worst things on planet earth, but at the same time, to be a role model for [children] makes me feel pretty good".

"But I started with positive feelings". Troicki entered this tournament losing his last five matches, and the fact he struggled with a player barely ranked inside the top-200 doesn't inspire much confidence.

"Of course, there are things to improve".

"I'm very very sorry", Puig said to the parochial crowd after the match".

Ash Barty's best result at the Australia Open was making the third round a year ago. "He's a tough competitor, he plays well in grand slams. he's tricky".

"I'm playing well and now it's just about getting through the matches at the beginning part of the tournament", Federer said. "It's true that in the grand slams he was here all the time", Nadal said.

Kyrgios won his first home ATP Tour title at the Brisbane International and is looking to go further than a quarter-final appearance in Melbourne three years ago. For whatever reason, it just won't happen for me.

The volatile 17th seed was on his best behaviour and let his racket do the talking as he treated his fans in the Hisense Arena to an impressive opening salvo.

"I'm just excited to be in Melbourne".

Nick Kyrgios made a confident start to his Australian Open campaign with victory over Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva in 87 minutes.

Kyrgios rolled through the first set, breaking twice in the fourth and sixth games before serving out to 15.

"And I'm getting closer and closer to that at the moment".

Love is in the air it seems in the @NickKyrgios camp. "Fingers crossed I can band it all together and play well this week".

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.

He will face Serbia's Viktor Troicki in the second round on Wednesday.

"I'm really happy with the way I played today", she said.

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

Kyrgios was joined in the second round by fellow Australians John Millman, who beat Borna Coric in straight sets, and Matthew Ebden who shocked 16th-seeded American John Isner.

"I feel like at the end of past year I probably found my best tennis". "I know what he's going to bring".
