Retiring Aussie star Lleyton Hewitt is set to take on Spaniard David Ferrer LIVE on Channel 7/7mate and the 7Tennis app from 7pm AEDT Thursday.
Hewitt has beaten the World No. 8 once before, back in 2006 at Wimbledon, but trails the head-to-head battles 1-2, so will again draw on a packed Rod Laver Arena to inspire him to another win.
Second up on Margaret Court Arena at night, the 16th seed Bernard Tomic faces Italian Simone Bolelli, with the Australian favoured to get through to the third round.
Late afternoon, big serving Aussie Sam Groth takes on World No.2 Andy Murray aiming for a big upset.
Serbian 20th seed Ana Ivanovic starts the day on Seven’s coverage at 11am as she takes on Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, while the in-form Victoria Azarenka also takes to the court.
