Here are my predictions for all of the matches on the first day of the Australian Open.
Halep d. Rogers in 3 sets: Simona will struggle early but get it together for the win.
Venus d. Kozlova in 2
Murray d. Marchenko in 3
Kerber d. Tsurenko in 2: Kerber will overcome early nerves to pull this out.
Fed d. Melzer in 3
Mugz d. Erakovic in 2
Tomic d. Bellucci in 4: Crowd will help him out. Wouldn't be completely shocked if this goes the other way.
Vinci d. CoCo in 3: This might be the match of the day.
Stan d. Klizan in 3
Genie d. Chirico in 2: Nice start for Genie. Chirico hasn't been playing as well lately.
Kei d. Kutznetsov in 3
Barty d. Beck in 3: Crowd will be the difference
Kuz d. Marino in 2
Kyrgios d. Elias in 3: Start of a deep run for Nick.
Aiava d. Barthel in 2: Top youngster to look out for.
Berdych d. Vanni in 3: Might as well be Vanna White playing Berdych.
Cilic d. Janowicz in 4: This will be a highly entertaining match.
