Canadians at the Australian Open - First round

Milos Raonic made it three for three for Canada when he won his opening-round match at the Australian Open. His victory followed those of Eugenie Bouchard and Vasek Pospisil, but Frank Dancevic could not keep up the streak. His loss leaves only three Canadians standing at the season's first Grand Slam tennis tournament.
