Australian Open Day One: Order of play and how to watch Rafael Nadal, Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek open their tournaments | CNN

 — 

Last year’s champion, Rafael Nadal will open the men’s draw at the Australian Open, though he will play a deceptively difficult opponent in the first round in Britain’s Jack Draper.

In the women’s singles, the USA’s Coco Gauff will step out into the Rod Laver Arena first, playing the first match of the entire tournament when she faces the Czech Republic’s Katerina Siniakova.

There are plenty of Americans beginning their tournament on Monday with No. 3 seed Jessica Pegula playing Romania’s Jaqueline Cristian, No. 10 seed Madison Keys facing Russia’s Anna Blinkova, No. 16 seed Frances Tiafoe playing Germany’s Daniel Altmaier and Sofia Kenin taking on Belarus’ Victoria Azarenka.

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek also begins her tournament as she seeks to cement her status as the sport’s best and win her first ever Australian Open.
