NEWLY minted Brisbane International champion Nick Kyrgios will look to consolidate his first Australian title with a display in the Fast4.

Kyrgios, who beat American Ryan Harrison in straight-sets to claim the Brisbane title, will battle fellow young gun Alexander Zverev before partnering his Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt in the doubles.

Two-time grand slam champion Hewitt will dust off the racquet in the singles against World No.3 Grigor Dimitrov in preparation for his doubles return with Sam Groth at the Australian Open.

Australia’s highest ranked player, Ash Barty, will bear the brunt of the sweltering conditions in the Sydney International, hitting Ken Rosewall Arena after the opening match between US Open champ Sloane Stephens and Camila Giorgi.

Plenty of other Aussies are in action throughout the day.
