Australia’s Summer of Tennis continues with the Melbourne Summer Set getting underway.

Naomi Osaka is in action against Alize Cornet on Tuesday morning, while Nick Kyrgios takes to the court in the evening.

World number six Rafael Nadal will partner up with Jaume Munar against Alexei Popyrin and Marc Polmans.

More Aussies are in action in Adelaide with John Millman to face compatriot Thanasi Kokkinakis in the evening.

At the ATP Cup in Sydney, Australia will face Russia in the group stage of the tournament.

It follows on from a stunning win for Australia over Italy on Sunday.

Alex De Minaur outclassed Matteo Berrettini in straight sets, while the Aussie pairing of John Peers and Luke Saville were too good for Italy in the doubles.

De Minaur will play World number two, Daniil Medvedev on Tuesday.
