Francilion is not the only French representative to defend the blue-white-red colors on this second day in Melbourne. Coming off the qualifiers, Terence Admane will face a tough fight against world No. 3 Daniil Medvedev, a double finalist at the Australian Major in 2021 and 2022.

100% French fight planned

In addition to Garcia and Autman, 11 other French players will play in their first round, including Gaël Monfils (world 49 Yannick Hanfmann) and the country's N.1 and N.2: Adrian Mannarino and Ugo Humbert. Swiss Stan Wawrinka (notably a former winner of Roland-Garros) and David Goffin (a former ATP top 10) respectively missed out on qualifying. Also watch out for the 100% blue fight between Alexandre Müller and Hugo Grenier.

One of the favorites in the women's event, Coco Koff (No. 4) faces Slovakian Anna Karolina Schmidlova (No. 67) at Rod Laver Arena. In action, the big match in sight between Matteo Berettini and Stefanos Tsitsipas (N.7). Local Alex de Minaur (N.10) will challenge Milos Raonic (former top 3 member and Australian Open semi-finalist in 2016) who is trying to get back to his best.
