Leonardo is a player with big potential, " said Nadal, who won the French and U.S. Opens a year ago but had his preparation for Australia delayed because of an injured right knee. "I was checking the tickets to fly back".

Now seeded 14th, Djokovic needed four match points in an eight-minute last game before clinching the win against Mofils, who needed a medical timeout for heat stress and said he had trouble breathing. "After a while without being on the competition. second victory in a row, that's very important".

Nadal, the 2017 runner-up, wasted no time in reaching the third round, dropping only one service game - while serving for the match - and making just 10 unforced errors in a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (4) win over Leonardo Mayer on Wednesday. Wozniacki was 5-1 down and facing two match points in third set against No. 119-ranked Jana Fett before deciding she had no choice but to attack.

Things will get harder for her now, against fellow Ukrainian and No. 4-seeded Elina Svitolina, who had a 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 win over Katerina Siniakova.

That left only Maria Sharapova, Aneglique Kerber and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko as Grand Slam winners in the women's draw.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, the Russian 15th seed, has been knocked out by Ukraine's Kateryna Bondarenko in a 6-2 6-3 second round upset on Hisense Arena.
