It doesn’t matter much to the result. Medvedev closes it out to move into the second round and a meeting with home favorite John Millman.
Madison Keys beats Anna Blinkova 6-4, 3-6, 6-2!
In the first round of the Australian Open 2023, Keys manages to string a couple of holds together and closes out the match point with a mesmeric backhand down the line, right in the postage stamp. The American lets out a huge scream in relief. That was a real topsy-turvy game, and Blinkova looked dangerous.

Swiatek twisted it on when she required to, wearing Niemeier down with some brutal forehands to get the break of serve and convert her first match point.
