Federer downplays talk of being favorite — TENNIS

"Moya has come with new ideas and new methods of working that have worked well and we are excited".

Last year, there were two first-time Major-winners while Serena was on maternity leave - Jelena Ostapenko at the French Open and Sloane Stephens at the US Open.

"Even if it was 100 percent healed, after six months out of competition, you never know how you are going to react", he said.

Sling TV: ESPN, ESPN 2 and ESPN 3 are all included in the "Sling Orange" base package. This year, he is in great form and fit for the grand slam.

World No. 1, Simona Halep, is yet to win a Grand Slam title and lost in the first round to Shelby Rogers in last year's tournament. That was okay. Now it's different.

Williams' sister Serena, the defending champion, has pulled out of the tournament after giving birth to her first child.

"I think it's the players". It was a site in China. A healthy Nadal should easily see himself into the second week at Melbourne Park. The knee is getting way better. His third round seed would be Richard Gasquet, a player he has not had trouble defeating in the past.

"I feel that I had a good week-and-a-half of practices".

"It was obviously the part of my game that I had to address because of the elbow issues".

It all sounds so familiar to Rafael Nadal.

Federer beat Rafael Nadal the number one seed in the final last year on his return from six months on the sidelines and is seeded number two as he bids for a 20th Grand Slam singles title.

Germany's Angelique Kerber is back in form and arrives in Melbourne full of confidence following victories over Lucie Safarova, Venus Williams, 2014 Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova and Camila Giorgi before beating Ashleigh Barty to claim her 11th career title. "This is going to be a very interesting year".

Roger Federer does not believe he should be the favourite to win the Australian Open.

Though the 2018 tennis season has already officially gotten underway, things don't really get going until the players arrive at Melbourne Park for the Australian Open.

"I don't feel pressure". It not only raised questions about her temperament but also prompted some people to call for an overhaul of the points system.

"But I have to take a step back". No. At 22, I felt the same. The 20-year-old heads into the year's first Grand Slam ranked fourth in the world, courtesy of five titles last year.

"Everyone starts from zero".

Two potential wide-open sections for semifinalist would be the bottom half of the top section, led by Grigor Dimitrov and then the top half of the bottom section, led by Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev.

The bookies have Federer as the solid favourite to retain his Australian title with Nadal just behind him.

"I think attacking tennis also has a lot of wear and tear on the body because being highly explosive is something that's a big challenge". [It] is not about my decision. The evening session will begin at 7 pm local time and 1.30 pm IST.
