"That was my sort of dream, not the kids bit". After Cilic would be the third-seeded Grigor Dimitrov.

Thiem squibbed a simple overhead with the score at 8-8, allowing Nadal to close out the match. "It's going to be a tough match".

The seedings for the season's first major tournament reflected the rankings in the both singles tournaments.

That seems the right message considering that Australia is part of the Asia-Pacific region and drawing an increasing number of spectators from that zone.

In a separate rule change designed to get matches started more quickly, warm-up times will be strictly enforced. However, 2009 US Open winner Juan Martin Del Potro also lurks in Federer's quarter of the draw.

The list is much longer than that though. The only edge upper tier players enjoy over their peers are is their experience.

The Australian Open will begin on January 15.

"I'm grateful and flattered that people see me as one of the favourites, but I have to take a step back", said the six-time Australian Open champion, the most successful men's player at Melbourne Park alongside Roy Emerson. Wawrinka needs confidence to win, and the 2014 champion, unfortunately, won't have that in Melbourne.

Nadal, 31, became the oldest player to end the year as world No 1, although the stresses and strain on his body finally took their toll when he had to pull out of the ATP World Tour Finals in November after losing his opening-round match.

Rafael Nadal - Nadal also had a memorable 2017. He enters the Australian Open coming off a title run in Doha. The Briton was forced to withdraw two days before the start of the US Open after failing to recover from the hip injury which bothered him during his loss to Querrey.

She plans to keep on winning on the court. Coaches are just there to provide strategies and pointers.

Federer has aged like a fine wine, and has lightened his practice load even more in recent months. No one really knows what version of Djokovic this year's Australian Open will be getting.

Then there is the more cyclical matter of whether a new ruling class is at last prepared to take power on the court.

Can Roger Federer maintain his late-career renaissance?

Though ranked number 32 in the world, the 20-year-old has a very impressive record against the top 10 ranked players. Rublev reached the quarter-finals, beating David Goffin in the fourth round in straight sets.

The Serb, who has built a reputation as one of the most formidable players in men's tennis, suffered a temporary blow to that status after being side-lined with an elbow problem for the past six months.

The 2008 champion and current world No. 47 kicks off her campaign against a player ranked one place higher, Germany's Tatjana Maria. "I don't like usually going to draws because they freak me out". She won her 23rd Grand Slam while pregnant, gave birth to her daughter, and got married.
