All you need to know about the Aus Open draw

While Nadal has contended at almost every Australian Open he's entered, he's won just once in four finals.

Naomi Broady battled through to the second round of qualifying at the Australian Open but there were defeats for Cameron Norrie and Katie Boulter.

"I had all these great five-setters and at the end the epic match against Rafa".

The most notable aspect of his return was that Djokovic - whose consultant coach Andre Agassi is due to arrive on Saturday - has slightly remodelled his serve, shortening his action and cutting short his takeback.

The transformation of the Australian Open from a moribund event played on grass in the confines of a fusty old tennis club (Kooyong) into the model major happened in one great leap in 1987.

"My dream was hopefully holding up a trophy of some kind, my home-town tournament in Basel or a Wimbledon trophy or being world No.1 of the ATP". Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic both struggled with form and injuries in 2017 and didn't play a competitive match after Wimbledon.

19-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer is placed as second seed while Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov and Germany's Alexander Zverev have been named third and fourth seed, respectively, the Daily Express reported. "I only like to see the draw sheet and see who my first round opponent is".

"Nadal, he's No 1 in the world and made the finals last year - I don't think I would be ahead of him as a favourite". Caroline Wozniacki, Garbine Muguruza and Elina Svitolina round out the top four.

The draw for the 2018 Australian Open has taken place and we put together the most important outcomes right here.

Defending champion Roger Federer starts his tournament against Aljaz Bedene and is on track to face Belgium's David Goffin in the last eight.

Last season gave renewed hope that Dimitrov might still blossom into the Grand Slam champion he seemed set to become as an extravagantly-talented junior.

Will the real Next Gen please stand up? While Konta has been in poor form of late and doesn't appear to be 100%, she has a strong record in Melbourne and a combination of her new coach and an Australian crowd that will readopt her will guide her to the title. The Design Museum Ghent, meanwhile, exhibits a trend-setting collection of Belgian and international design. And of course there are all the health concerns, like with Nadal's knees and Djokovic's elbow.

The men's game needs one of the younger players to step up and triumph over the ever-increasing 30-plus brigade. For the culturally-oriented, Flanders is truly a paradise of art and culture, as the video below shows.

The German is seeded fourth at Melbourne Park, but has never experienced a quarter-final, or beyond, at a major. The poor conditions at Kooyong and the holiday-season time slot gradually drove away stars once they started making enough money to skip the event.
