But there is something to be said about her tenacity. Reigning Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, seeded third, rounds out the top half of the draw and could face a daunting test in the third round from either 2016 champion Angelique Kerber or 2008 champion Maria Sharapova. I haven't played in six months.

But Svitolina's odds are still pretty long when you compare that to the men's draw where favourite Roger Federer is [3.0].

The draw took place on Thursday, January 11 which saw British hopes Johanna Konta and Kyle Edmund draw Madison Brengle and Kevin Anderson respectively. She could face two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in the third round and Karolina Pliskova in the quarters.

It must be Federer. I can't see him not collecting a sixth title in Melbourne. "I'm just going to go out there, try to weather the storm, and try to play my game", De Minaur said. You're not just breaking down the body during matches; you're breaking it down during training.

Nadal, last year's runner-up in Melbourne, opens his campaign against Dominican Victor Estrella Burgos.

Tournament organisers no doubt breathed a sigh of relief when Margaret Court revealed she would not be attending the event this year.

1 Rafael Nadal continued his preparations for the Australian Open yesterday with a surprise practice match against Austrian Dominic Thiem. Djokovic faces American Donald Young in the opening round.

But the 31-year-old was undone by Tomas Berdych, who triumphed 10-5 to claim the $250,000 (£184,500) prize.

Only three players stand out to me as genuine dark horses: Bautista Agut, Raonic and Schwartzman. Schwartzman can be a spoiler.

"But based on what I've seen so far..."

In the list of absentees, former world number one Andy Murray and Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori will miss the first major of the season because of their respective injuries.

In the second quarter, we find former Grand Slam finalists Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Kevin Anderson. Wins four or five matches at the Hopman Cup against high-level competition. Federer is seeded No. 2 as he bids for a 20th Grand Slam singles title.

"I always feel like the legends, the icons, the all-time greats, are made from a different mould", he says.

Can Roger Federer maintain his late-career renaissance?

Grigor Dimitrov is intent on seizing the moment and ushering in a new era of men's tennis as he heads the queue of unfulfilled talents chasing Australian Open glory at Melbourne Park.

Indeed, many Aussie supporters may not have been alive to witness the last occasion.

With a number of big names returning from injury and bragging rights very much up for grabs in the women's game, this year's tournament is shaping up nicely.
