"I'm very happy with the way it went and that's all I can say".

The American, who coached the 19-time Grand Slam victor between 2010 and 2013 after being in Pete Sampras' corner, believes that despite recently turning 36, you can never write-off the Swiss because he is such a special talent.

Six-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, seeded 14th for this year's tournament, has a couple of potential early obstacles with American Donald Young and potentially mercurial Frenchman Gael Monfils in the second round.

Last year's Australian Open has been dubbed the throwback grand slam, with the women's final being contested by Serena and Venus Williams, with the men's final seeing Rafael Nadal go down to Roger Federer.

Naomi Broady battled through to the second round of qualifying at the Australian Open but there were defeats for Cameron Norrie and Katie Boulter. If he wants to make it out of his quarter of the draw, he might have to beat his brother Mischa - a quarter-finalist in Melbourne a year ago - in the third round, or Australian wildcard Thanasi Kokkinakis - who defeat Alexander Zverev at the Hopman Cup last week - before a showdown with Djokovic in the last-16. He delayed his return until two exhibition appearances this week.

Only at Wimbledon (eight) has he lifted a grand slam trophy on more occasions, while the Swiss can point to his Melbourne Park record with confidence heading into this year's event.

Hormel Foods Corporation (HRL) stock ends Yesterday with change of -2.77%
The company reported $0.41 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.40 by $0.01. Shares of Hormel Foods Corp (NYSE HRL ) traded down $1.05 during midday trading on Friday, hitting $34.34.

The Swiss is both favourite and defending champion going into the Australian Open, having triumphed in a breath-taking five-set victory over his old adversary, and friend, Rafael Nadal previous year.

The 2018 Australian Open draw has been released, and some stars face a hard road to the finals despite a field missing some key stars.

The former world number one will aim to clinch his sixth Australian Open title when the tournament gets underway at Melbourne Park starting on January 15. "I'm just going to go out there, try to weather the storm, and try to play my game", De Minaur said.

Russian Maria Sharapova, back in Melbourne for the first time since she failed a doping test for meldonium in 2016 and completed a ban, is another with the experience and firepower to prevail and along with Angelique Kerber is one of only two former champions in the women's draw.

Entering as the No. 1 seed for the first time at a major and at a tournament where she's had back-to-back first-round exits, two-time French Open finalist Halep opens against teenage wild-card entry Destanee Aiava.

"The drive, I still have it". "Especially it's only 20 minutes away from Rod Laver Arena so it's the same conditions and we'll see in a couple of days (where I'm at)". "I put a lot of expectations on myself because I have been there, and I have delivered in those moments".
