The 2019 Australian Open is set to enter the next stage as the third round matches will get underway on day 5 of the tournament with the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Marin Cilic etc. set to take part in the matches.

Rafael Nadal has been on a roll so far in this tournament as he eased his way into the third round. In the first round, he took on local wild card James Duckworth and beat him 6-4 6-3 7-5. In the second round, he defeated Matthew Ebden, another Australian opponent, 6-3 6-2 6-2 to qualify further in the year's first Grand Slam.

After beating two Australians in his first two matches, the World number 2 will take on his third Australian opponent in as many matches and this time, he is expected to face some fight as he takes on Alex de Minaur in the third round on day 5.

This match is scheduled to take place at the Rod Laver Arena and will be the first match of the night session.

The 19-year-old Aussie international is ranked 29th in the world and has faced Nadal once in his career, in 2018 at Wimbledon, in which the Spaniard came out on top in straight sets. This clash might not be an easy one for Nadal as de Minaur, the 27th seed, might give the former world number 1 a run for his money in front of his home crowd.
