Zverev is hoping for the support of Nowitzki, who hit a few balls with Zverev at Melbourne Park last week and wants to watch the game live on site. “He told me he will be there Monday and Tuesday. I think he will also be there for my match,” said Zverev.

In addition to Zverev, three other German players are hoping to advance to the second round on Tuesday. Jan-Lennard Struff is just an outsider against American Tommy Paul. In the women’s category, Wimbledon semi-finalist Tatjana Maria faces Italy’s Lucrezia Stefanini, while Laura Siegemund competes with Lucia Bronzetti from Italy.

There was bad news for the organizers on Monday: local hero Nick Kyrgios had to cancel his start due to a meniscus injury. “It’s brutal,” said the Wimbledon finalist, who was considered one of the biggest advertisers for the tournament at Melbourne Park. After all, the Spanish defending champion Rafael Nadal prevented an early exit with a 7: 5, 2: 6, 6: 4, 6: 1 against the British Jack Draper.
