“The most important thing is, I stayed positive throughout the entire match,” he said

“Positive vibes only for 2022. Basically, I’m not allowed to get negative on court.

“So if you guys see me negative on court – make sure to tell me off.”

Fellow Aussie Nick Kyrios also cruised through to the second round, with a 6-4 6-4 6-3 victory over Liam Broady on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old will take on world No.2 Daniil Medvedev.
