Australian Open 2018: From Novak Djokovic's comeback to battle for WTA No 1, reasons to watch 1st Grand Slam of the year

Djoko, Wawrinka and Muguruza all battling to make the Aussie Open

The deficit barely bothered Nadal, who showed some of his classic form in closing the gap to 3-3. However, while my head may be saying that Muguruza will be emerge victorious come the end of January, I have a feeling that Johanna Konta will become Britain's first female grand slam champion since Virginia Wade in 1977. "It worked pretty well".

Murray recently underwent hip surgery and will be out for another six months but Djokovic returns after his hiatus at the Australian Open.

Gasquet, who missed Kooyong last year through illness and injury, was happy to get even an informal win over the Spaniard.

"He knows how to compartmentalise really well".

Queenslander John Millman faces Croat Borna Coric, while Thanasi Kokkinakis plays gifted Russian Daniil Medvedev and Alex Bolt plays Serb Viktor Troicki.

Federer, though, is intimately familiar with the pressure weighing down on a defending champion and will take a typically philosophical approach to his campaign at Melbourne Park.

The Australian Open will be a barren tournament for the British men unless Kyle Edmund - now our only male representative - can stage a significant upset over US Open finalist Kevin Anderson. Federer is seeded No. 2 as he bids for a 20th Grand Slam singles title. Obviously, if he's off to a fast start and looks good, Djokovic has to be a favorite to win this title, something he's done six times.

'I mean they are the two players at the top of their game and they are two of the most successful tennis players ever.

"Last year's season was a bit long and I had to start a little bit later than I would've liked". I'll sleep, eat and train and not do too much.

We will be covering the draw live, right here. At the event he won six titles (2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016).

The Wimbledon champion is scheduled take on France's Jessika Ponchet in the first round, while French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko was paired with veteran Francesca Schiavone and U.S Open champion Sloane Stephens will take on China's Zhang Shuai. The other match took place in 2006. The Swiss could join Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori on the star absentee list. Chris Kermode, executive chairman of the men's tour, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), promised a shake-up, although he accepted the players' reasons for withdrawing.

"If you really need it, do it for the finals, the semifinals, but this is unnecessary for the guys", she said.

"She's a big hitter and there were not many rallies".

Third seed Grigor Dimitrov is on track to face Australian hopeful Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round. Federer could face seventh-seeded David Goffin or 12th-seeded Juan Martín del Potro in the quarterfinals. The five-time champion could meet a one of the tour's biggest servers on tour in either No.13 seed Sam Querrey or former semifinalist Milos Raonic in the fourth round.

What was more concerning, albeit in an exhibition, was his performance against retired 36-year-old Lleyton Hewitt in the semi-finals of the event - first to 10 points - having survived match points against the Australian.
