Action at the Australian Open is hotting up with teenage sensation and giant-killer Coco Gauff all set to take on 2019 champion Naomi Osaka while second-round action in the men's section, on Thursday, will see Alexander Zverev up against Minsk-born Egor Gerasimov.

The Belarusian engaged in a grinding five-setter against Casper Ruud winning the first couple of sets and losing the next two before just about managing to cross the line in the decider.

In stark contrast, Zverev cruised past Marco Cecchinato without breaking into as much of a sweat and made the headlines for announcing that he would donate A$ 10,000 for every match he wins to victims of the bushfires that ravaged the region not so long ago.

Gerasimov, seeded 98th, is making his maiden appearance at Melbourne Park this year - the 27-year-old Belarusian has never faced Zverev in the past and will need to punch well above his weight against the seventh seed who looked composed against Cecchinato.

The 22-year-old German forced his opponent into committing vital errors en route to his first-round win and will be banking on a powerful and consistent first serve to propel him into the third round.
