Melbourne, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 14th Jan, 2019 ) :Last year's Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic wasted little time in reaching the second round on Monday with a 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) win over Australian Bernard Tomic.

Sixth seed Cilic, who lost an epic final in five sets to Roger Federer a year ago, took a shade over two hours to progress on Margaret Court Arena.

The former US Open champion, who led Croatia to a Davis Cup trophy in November, skipped the warm-up Maharashtra ATP tournament with a stiff knee, but showed no signs of the injury against Tomic.

The 30-year-old's victory set up a second-round clash with American Mackenzie McDonald.
