MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — A quick look at the Australian Open:
LOOKAHEAD TO WEDNESDAY
Serena Williams continues her quest for a record 24th Grand Slam singles title when she plays her second-round match against Nina Stojanovic of Serbia. Bianca Andreescu, who beat Williams in the 2019 U.S. Open final but was then sidelined for 15 months, plays her second match in a long-awaited injury comeback against Hsieh Su-wei. Second-seeded Simona Halep takes on local hope Ajla Tomljanovic and three-time major winner Naomi Osaka plays Caroline Garcia. Eight-time Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic plays Frances Tiafoe in what could be an early test for the defending champion. U.S. Open champion Dominic Thiem takes on Dominik Koepfer in the second round while Denis Shapovalov, who had a tough five-set win over Jannik Sinner in an enthralling five-setter between future stars, is up against Australian qualifier Bernard Tomic.
