Roger Federer is also through after defeating Steve Johnson in straight sets (6-3, 6-2, 6-2), while Cori Gauff had another memorable meeting with Venus Williams.

The 15-year-old defeated her veteran American compatriot in straight sets (7-6, 6-3) to repeat her heroics from Wimbledon in what was a dream start to her debut at the Australian Open.

She will face Romanian Sorana Cirstea in the second round on Wednesday.
