Djokovic and Sabalenka back in Australian Open action

MELBOURNE: Novak Djokovic resumes his quest for a 25th Grand Slam title Wednesday against home hope Alexei Popyrin, while fellow defending champion Aryna Sabalenka faces her second consecutive qualifier.

Serbian superstar Djokovic dropped a set against unheralded Croat Dino Prizmic in his opening clash and will not want to do repeat the feat against 43rd-ranked Popyrin.

But the 10-time Australian Open winner heads into the night match on Rod Laver Arena with lingering concerns over his health after admitting he was “a bit under the weather” against Prizmic.
