Meanwhile rain in Sydney prevented Michael Venus from taking to the court for his second-round doubles match with German partner Tim Puetz. The 4th seeds will face Frenchman Fabrice Martin and Britain’s Jonny O’Mara this afternoon. Marcus Daniell and Denis Kudla have pulled out of their match against third seeds John Peers and Filip Polasek.
