The first day of action at the 2014 Australian Open is in the books, which means we've only got 13 to go! The first round will continue as the other half of the bracket finds its way onto the court. Day one saw women's No. 1 seed Serena Williams and men's No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic in action.
On Tuesday -- which works out to Monday night for those watching in the United States -- men's No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal will play his first match, alongside women's No. 2 Victoria Azarenka. Nadal is perceived to have a harder route to the semifinals and finals than Djokovic, due to his side of the bracket having more big names. Azarenka also seems to have a tougher route than Williams.
Nadal's first match isn't a gimme by any means, either. He's taking on Bernard Tomic, who could easily give Nadal some issues. Also playing on Tuesday for the men: No. 6 seed Roger Federer, No. 10 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and No. 4 seed Andy Murray. Among those playing for the women: No. 3 seed Maria Sharapova and No. 5 seed Agnieszka Radwanska.
