The Australian Open 2022 is going full steam ahead on discovery+ with an enthralling opening round capturing the attention of fans around the world.
BBC SPOTY winner Emma Raducanu and five-time finalist Sir Andy Murray have both negotiated their way through to the second round after recording impressive victories on Tuesday.
Raducanu dispatched Sloane Stephens in a terrific first-round showdown, while Murray toppled No.21 seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in a five-set thriller Down Under.
Dan Evans is also through to the second round after defeating David Goffin, though No.12 seed Cam Norrie suffered an early exit at the hands of Sebastian Korda.
Rafael Nadal is back among the fold and will hope to land a 21st Grand Slam title of his career, while US Open champion Raducanu will have to contend with defending champion Naomi Osaka and homegrown hero Ash Barty, who is the dominant world No.1 right now.

Fans can also stream matches at ESPN.com as well as the ESPN app.
The tournament is being held at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia. The venue has been the traditional location of the tournament since 1988.
The final and top-seed matches will take place in Rod Laver Arena - Melbourne Park's biggest court - while the nearby Margaret Court Arena and Melbourne Arena will also host matches during the first grand slam of the year.
The tournament will once again be spread over a 14-day period, with men's and women's singles matches taking place mostly simultaneously.
A provisional schedule is available below, with the men's semi-finals set to take place on the same day for the first time.
Day sessions start around midnight UK time for those dedicated enough to watch live – but thankfully discovery+ will have every match available on demand. Night sessions start around 8am UK time (unless specified).
Yes – officials are planning for full capacity in all stadiums this year, which in pre-pandemic times saw up to 800,000 fans attend Melbourne Park.
Last year crowds were limited to 30,000 a day in socially distanced seating, until a five-day snap lockdown on 12th February meant the tournament continued behind closed doors until 17th February.
The Australian Open 2022 will also see the return of freedom of movement throughout the park and the return of ground passes, after the 2021 tournament saw the venue divided into three zones in order to limit mixing.
