2019 Australian Open draw: Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic dealt horror first ...

At the announcement of the official draw on Thursday, Kyrgios' first-round opponent was revealed as Canadian big man Milos Raonic, while Tomic was pitted against last year's runner up Marin Cilic.

Australia's top ranked men's player Alex de Minaur found out his first-round opponent too, Portugal's world No.103 Pedro Sousa, and could also face Nadal later in the tournament.

Thanasi Kokkinakis, Astra Sharma and Naiktha Bains could boost the local representation in the main draws to 23 on Friday when they play final-round qualifying matches at Melbourne Park.
