Rafael Nadal has missed a lot of tennis since last September.
He was joined in the third round by another kid from the USA who'd never been that far at Melbourne Park, 21-year-old Taylor Fritz, who saved 12 of the 13 break points he faced while dispatching No. 30 seed Gael Monfils of France 6-3, 6-7 (8), 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5).
Thomas Fabbiano (ITA) bt WC-Jason Kubler (AUS) 6-4 7-6 (1) 2-6 6-3. The new tiebreaker rule was introduced to ensure games don't get too lengthy - previously the third set in women's matches and the fifth set in men's matches at the Australian Open had to be decided by a two-game advantage.
Wild Card Duckworth pulled off some lovely shots - particularly in the final few games to entertain the crowd - but despite breaking the 17-time Grand Slam champion at 5-3 down in the final set, he could not make it count. His only hiccup came when he served for the match in the ninth game of the third set and was broken. But Nadal returned the favor, breaking the Australian in the final game of the match.
Nadal has only lost twice in the first round at Grand Slams - to Steve Darcis at 2013 Wimbledon, and to Fernando Verdasco here in 2016 - and didn't show signs of being at risk this time.
Anderson has lost in the first round here six times, including to Kyle Edmund previous year.

Sharapova pounced on the Briton's weak second serve to repeatedly break her opponent, bringing up the first set bagel after 31 minutes.
Dart, who described Sharapova as her idol before the match, lost in the first round at Wimbledon past year after being given a wild card in her only previous Grand Slam singles appearance.
Sharapova was far from ideal against Dart, committing three double faults and eight unforced errors, but was never threatened by the 22-year-old Londoner.
Defending champion Caroline Wozniacki made light work of AlisonVanUytvanck, while there were also wins for former champions Maria Sharapova and AngeliqueKerber.
