Nadal, Federer get top seeds at Australian Open

No-one is more aware of his own flaws than Kyrgios, which has made his failure to address them all the more frustrating. I'm not going to say quarter-finals, semi-finals, anything like that. That being said though, five years ago, at the end of 2012, just the triad of Nadal-Djokovic-Murray had emerged victorious in 42 such events. "I played better than I thought might happen, and most importantly I played without pain".

"It seems like he's doing the right things otherwise he wouldn't be winning tournaments, especially not in Brisbane because being able to cope with the pressure at home is not a simple thing".

This year around, question marks of a different kind surround the Spaniard, with doubts over his fitness coming into the Australian Open.

"I know that if I get myself to desired level of performance - mental and physical - that I can actually have a good chance to go far in the tournament".

The Serbian could win the match if his arm injury, which has kept him off the court since Wimbledon, doesn't give him problems.

While reigning U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens, a breakthrough semifinalist in 2013, will start from a No. 13 seeding, the women's draw will include only two players who have won an Australian Open: No. 22-ranked Angelique Kerber (2016), and No. 47-ranked Maria Sharapova (2008).

"I'd like to do well". I don't know how it's going to behave.

"But I have to take a step back".

Entered into his first tournament draw since last year's Wimbledon, Djokovic starts in unfamiliar territory as the No.14 seed.

Barty enjoyed a career-best season as she claimed the 2017 Newcombe Medal as Australian tennis' best-performed player. I don't want to look ahead at all. "Right after I finished the match, I watched it the following day", said Dimitrov of his epic Melbourne encounter with Nadal.

There has never been a doubt that Kyrgios is capable of winning a grand slam but both mental and physical resilience has been a major issue.

"There are three or four details that I have changed", Djokovic said.

A deal is almost wrapped up for the two heavyweights to collide on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. To do that he has to beat Parker and Wilder.

The third, will there be a first time major victor, with the likes of Alexander Zverev, Domic Thiem, Nick Kyrgios, Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin knocking on the door? I feel that I had a good week-and-ahalf of practices. My physio flew in, so I've had him for the last two, three days.

"For me, it's because of me getting older. I have great results here but I'll take it a bit more modestly and see how my matches go". If he gets through this minefield, then a 20th Grand Slam title might just suffice. So it's been good.

He was due to play in an exhibition in Abu Dhabi between Christmas and new year, and feature in the Brisbane International in the first week of the year, but withdrew as he felt he was "still not ready".

Tempestuous Australian 17th seed Nick Kyrgios, is in the same section of the draw and faces Brazil's 100th-ranked Rogerio Dutra Silva.
