    Del Potro, Cilic in second-round action Sixth seed Juan Martin Del Potro will attempt to secure a spot in the round of 32 with a victory over Germany's Benjamin Becker. The Argentine is joined in second-round play by 12 seed Marin Cilic, who takes on qualifier Rajeev Ram.

    (6) Juan Martin Del Potro vs. Benjamin Becker

    World No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro holds a 2-0 series edge against world No. 66 Benjamin Becker. Thursday signals their first career meeting in a main-draw event.

    Del Potro won his first match of the season with a comprehensive defeat of France's Adrian Mannarino. The 24-year-old Argentine collected seven aces and 24 winners en route to a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 victory in 76 minutes.

    "I think I played really aggressive," Del Potro said. "I made a lot of winners with my forehand. I served well. I made a very good start to this Open."

    Del Potro looks to reach his fourth third-round berth at the tournament.

    Becker is through to the second round following a come-from-behind win against Slovenia's Aljaz Bedene. The 31-year-old veteran is seeking his first round of 32 berth at the Australian Open.

The 24-year-old tallied 9 aces and 34 winners through two hours and 22 minutes of play. Cilic remains on track to book his fifth consecutive round of 32 at the tournament.
