Andy Murray struggles in Australian Open practice match against Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic

Serb Djokovic could then face a rematch of his 2008 final triumph over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round, before a possible second week match-up against Japan's Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals.

Top-ranked Djokovic and defending champion Federer enter the season-opening major equal with Roy Emerson, who won his six Australian singles championships between 1961-67, before the Open era.

Roger Federer's bid for a third successive Australian Open title will begin against world No. 99 Denis Istomin, while top seed Novak Djokovic will face a qualifier in the first round.

Andy Murray has offered a fan a ticket to his Australian Open first-round clash with Roberto Bautista Agut.

White said she did not intend to release further details because she was anxious about the complexity of her son's case in Iran. She is anxious about her 46-year-old son's health because he has had cancer and suffers from asthma, she said.


World No 4 Alexander Zverev is in the same half and a blockbuster semi-final looms if both players advance that far.

"I'm so close, I'll give it a go, " Federer said.

And he gets his Australian Open campaign underway against James Duckworth, while Federer takes on Denis Istomin. If it would happen defending this title, I would gladly accept it.

He was bundled out of the Brisbane International warm-up last week in round two by Russia's Daniil Medvedev and headed straight to Melbourne to fit in some much-needed practice.

Serena Williams will face Tatjana Maria in the first round, and could meet either Genie Bouchard or Peng Shaui in the second round.

One more here would see him follow Jimmy Connors as the only man in the Open era to hit three figures, as well as taking him past Djokovic and Roy Emerson at Melbourne Park.

Halep, however, may be reluctant to look beyond the first round, having drawn her U.S. Open nemesis Kaia Kanepi. "I like to play attacking tennis, so I've come full circle". "I feel like these courts are suited for me, so it's incredible to be back".

Second-seeded Angelique Kerber, who won the Australian and U.S. Opens in 2016 and added the Wimbledon title a year ago, is in the same half as Wozniacki and has 2017 U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens in her quarter. Not just physically, but also mentally, to see that I could beat Grigor Dimitrov twice, he was top-10 at that time.
