Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka in Tie Break Tens action

World No 1 Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka will highlight the latest addition of Tie Break Tens from Melbourne on Wednesday.

Novak Djokovic and Lleyton Hewitt will kick-off the first-round tie break match-ups, and you can watch the action on Sky Sports Arena from 8.30am on Wednesday morning.

Former world No 1 Djokovic makes his return having not played since last year's Wimbledon championship due to an elbow injury.

The 30-year-old, who has won six Australia Open titles, most recently in 2016, will take on Australian legend Hewitt in the opening match of the evening.

Nadal, who missed the warm-up Brisbane International last week with a knee injury, then takes on Frenchman Lucas Pouille before Brisbane International champion Nick Kyrgios takes on Czech big-hitter Tomas Berdych.

Wawrinka, who had knee surgery last August, returns to action for the first time when he faces Dominic Thiem from Austria.

Melbourne joins London, Madrid and Vienna as cities who have hosted the new format which are comprised solely of tie breaks - no games, no sets, just exhilarating 10-point breaks in which every point counts.
