’23 Australian Open – Day 2 men’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – No Canadian men in the lineup on Tuesday, Day 2 of the 2023 Australian Open.

But Novak Djokovic returned in triumph.

And Nick Kyrgios was supposed to be back on the “people’s stadium” – John Cain Arena (which has had several name changes but still has been a happy place for him). Except a tear in his lateral meniscus and a cyst which formed as a result of the tear, has proven to not be manageable to get him through the AO.

He’s going back home to Canberra, and will have an arthroscopic procedure and hopes to be back by Indian Wells.

But there was also Rublev vs. Thiem (not a classic). Berrettini vs. Murray (an epic).

So, no lack of potentially gripping matches. Heat wave, thunderstorms – and into the wee hours.

Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
