The 27 year old barely broke a sweat in the first round with his match with Bernard Tomic was abandoned with Nadal leading 6-4 and he will hope for a more testing run out against Kokkinakis.
The first round stretched Nadal’s 2014 record to 6-0 following his earlier success in the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha
Nadal’s continued success is all the more impressive when you consider that he has refused to the follow the growing trend to work alongside a “super coach”.
The 13 time grand slam winner has worked all his career with his Uncle Toni Nadal and while his rivals have all strengthened their backroom staff with the addition of a super-coach, Roger Federer being latest one to go down this road following his decision to work alongside Stefan Edberg Nadal is no hurry to follow suit.
“Seriously for me, I believe in the continuation of the things, something (that has worked for a) long time,”
“My team is the same since I start. That is something that I am proud of.”
He faces a relative unknown in the shape of world number 400 Kokkinakis. The 17 year old caused a shock on the opening day when he beat Dutchman Igor Sijsling in four sets
The Australian playing his at his first major Grand Slam event enjoyed a fantastic 2013 at junior level reaching the finals of the Australian and the US open.
Despite his success, Kokkinakis had an injury hit year, following a stress fracture to his back sustained in Melbourne last year and his only title coming in the Melbourne Challenger doubles final.
This will be the first time Kokkinakis will have faced Nadal and with an eager local following crying out for a new hero the youngster will hope to make an impression.
The pair have faced each other however in the practice arena and Nadal has been impressed with what he has seen.
“I practised with him in the past,” said Nadal. “I met him the other day in the Babolat event. He has a great future and will be a very tough match for me if I am not able to play my best. I am going to try to play well.”
