Australian Open Men's Day One Tips: Bedene can get past Bublik
Ahead of day one of the Australian Open, our tennis columnist, Dan Weston, gives his thoughts on the opening day's play and tries to identify some pre-match value...
Caution advised on the opening day
Bedene looking like value against Bublik
Bublik, after struggling past Challenger Tour player Christopher O'Connell in the same tournament, lost as a favourite to the surprising finalist, Stefano Travaglia, and also retired in Antalya in the opening week of the season.
Tiafoe looks short even with Travaglia potentially fatigued
French duo offering potential value
A number of big names also get their tournaments underway, including Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem. All are around or sub, and it would be a real surprise if any of them were beaten, although both Zverev and Thiem look a little short against Marcos Giron and Mikhail Kukushkin, respectively.
