There is an absolute certainty so far at the Australian Open: Roger Federer plays always in the night session so far. The Swiss will face Richard Gasquet as the last match of the night on the Rod Laver Arena. Federer leads head to head meetings 18-2. But it will be Angelique Kerber and Maria Sharapova to open the night session. In the day session Simona Halep faces Lauren Davis, then the all-NextGen meeting between Hyeon Chung and Alexander Zverev. Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka will close it.
On the Margaret Court Arena Madison Keys faces Ana Bogdan, then the all-Czech clash between Lucie Safarova and Karolina Pliskova. After that, Dominic Thiem plays Adrian Mannarino. For the first time, Novak Djokovic plays at night, against Albert Ramos. On Hisense Arena, the spotlight will be on the match between Juan Martin del Potro and Tomas Berdych at 5:00 PM.
