AUSTRALIA OPEN: Federer drawn against Bedene, Nadal meets Burgos

AUSTRALIA OPEN: Federer drawn against Bedene, Nadal meets Burgos

Top-ranked Simona Halep opens against Australian wild card Destanee Aiava, has a potential second-round match against 2014 Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard, and is in the same half as Garbine Muruguza, the Wimbledon champion.

Later in the day, Djokovic is scheduled to play a match at the Tie Break Tens, then another match on Thursday at the Kooyong Classic, according to the organisers.

"It's their view and I've never needed the help of Tennis Australia to achieve what I've achieved in my career".

No one was able to get anywhere close past year, not just in terms of consistently winning the biggest tournaments but also when it comes to charisma.

"It would be ideal if I got another tournament under my belt before the Australian Open but my elbow wasn't ready". Rafael Nadal showed that talk of his demise had been exaggerated by winning the French and US Open titles previous year although he faces a battle to repeat those feats without his lifelong coach and uncle Toni while also fighting familiar injury troubles.

Bookmakers are tipping the world No. 2 and tournament's second seed to win the title at A$2.75 (S$2.88).

The 4-4-2 formation team has a magnificent backline comprising of Sergio Ramos , Marcelo, Giorgio Chiellini and Dani Alves. Cristiano Ronaldo made his 12 appearance in the team, alongside five other Real Madrid players.

Novak Djokovic has practised behind closed doors ahead of next week's Australian Open, adding to the intrigue surrounding his return from a lengthy injury layoff. "I don't like usually going to draws because they freak me out". U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens, who has struggled since winning her first major last September, will face Shuai Zhang of China in the first round.

Federer also has Milos Raonic, Juan Martin del Potro, David Goffin and Tomas Berdych in his quarter of the draw, while Nadal would appear to have the easier section, although former U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic looms as a last-eight opponent. The world number four starts tournament against Thomas Fabbiano of Italy.

"I remember it was a lovely place and ever since I fell in love with Australia."In a happy place physically, the 36-year-old Federer is also in a happy place mentally as he travels alongside wife Mirka, their twin daughters Myla and Charlene, as well as twin sons Leo and Lenny".

Sharapova, who missed last year's Open while serving a ban after testing positive to banned substance Meldonium, said she still covets a return to the No 1 ranking.

She said: "I have pain in my right adductor".

The Austrian is turning 25 this year, and many are looking for Thiem to start to become more consistent throughout the season, and for him to also start to make several deep runs at the Grand Slam tournaments.
