Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal get easy opponents in Australian Open draw

Federer the favourite for Australian Open

He starts against a qualifier and could meet his Brisbane conqueror and home hopeful, 17th seed Nick Kyrgios, in the fourth round. It's a spirit perhaps inspired by art of the surrealist artist René Magritte, to whom the Magritte Museum is dedicated. "They're definitely two favourites to look at".

A similar controversy blew up at the Auckland Classic this week when four players pulled out before their opening matches, citing injury or illness.

The first grand slam always brings with it a sense of uncertainty. Cycle among the castles, the museums and the churches, and then through the tranquil countryside for a wholesome Flemish experience.

The Swiss master begins the year as the number two ranked player in the world. "To me, he's the clear favourite". You're not just breaking down the body during matches; you're breaking it down during training.

"I just thought that the game and the wins weren't going to come. because I would just run into a red-hot Djokovic or Murray or Nadal or somebody and my game wasn't going to be good enough", Federer recalled.

Brother Mischa (32) and Albert Ramos-Vinolas (21) should not unduly trouble the 20-year-old, but six-time champion Djokovic, seeded 14th after his lengthy absence from the tour, could yet blow his portion of the draw wide open should he prove his fitness.

Family man Roger Federer says he's living the dream as he prepares to defend his Australian Open crown once again with his four children in tow.

Federer, even at 36, is the rightful Australian Open favorite after appearing fresh and sharp in the Hopman Cup team event.

Venus Williams, who lost the Australian final to her younger sister Serena last year, is seeded fifth.

Third-seeded Muguruza is in a difficult quarter containing former Australian Open champions Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber, and U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys.

Knee problems could disrupt Nadal's bid for a first Australian Open title since 2009, but there's arguably no player in history who has bounced back from injuries as successfully as Nadal. Rafa Nadal, who Federer beat in the 2017 final, has also had issues with his knees leading into the event.

Williams remains, at 23 Grand Slam singles titles, one short of Court's record. The Zverev brothers, who have never been opponents, are on a third-round collision course. "Every athlete on this planet has to some degree some sort of injury and when I look back I don't regret anything". "I thought I had everything under control but then after that first set, everything kind of slipped away from me", Dimitrov said.

It was naturally a welcome news to Australian Open director Craig Tiley.
