Rafael Nadal vs Thanasi Kokkinakis match information:

Time: August 29th 2019, 23:00 (GMT+8)

Surface: Hardcourt outdoor

Competition: 2019 US Open men's singles

The victory against Millman marked Rafael Nadal's 15-match unbeaten run in the first round of the US Open, a tournament where the Spanish player won three championships (2010, 2013, 2017).

A year ago, John Millman was shocked when he defeated Federer here but in this comeback to New York, the Australian player could not repeat that feat in the face of Nadal.

Seed 2 saves all 3 break-points in the face and successfully takes advantage of 5/15 similar opportunities to complete the victory after 2 hours 7 minutes.

Waiting for Nadal in the next round will be a Millman's compatriot, after Thanasi Kokkinakis overcomes Ilya Ivashka 6-3, 7-6 (8), 6-7 (4), 6-2 in a match lasts 3 hours 38 minutes.

It was also the first victory at Kokkinakis' US Open, who lost to Nadal at the 2014 Australian Open when he was only 17 years old.

Predictions: Rafael Nadal wins after 3 sets
