Federer favourite despite tough Australian Open draw

Federer favourite despite tough Australian Open draw Federer favourite despite tough Australian Open draw

The 12-time Grand Slam victor is taking inspiration from his old rival Roger Federer, who at 36 and after an injury absence in 2016 came back with all guns blazing previous year, winning another two Grand Slams, including Australia.

Another great recognition for Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

Nick Kyrgios says he has had enough of such a "rollercoaster" ride and would rather "keep it even-keeled" on the tennis court as he prepares for the Australian Open.

"That's what happened for me previous year". "No one ever wants to let themselves down".

Top seed Rafael Nadal will be heading to the Australian Open for the first time in his career without playing in any warm-up tie.

"The depth in women's tennis has got so strong in the last few years", she added. Dimitrov did engage Nadal in a brawl of a 2017 Australian semifinal, falling only 6-4 in the fifth set, and did win the ATP Finals in London in November.

There is a sneaky feeling that Federer, who is in good form by his showing at the Hopman Cup, where he helped Switzerland overcome Germany and he is also fully fit, could snag a sixth Australian Open crown come January 28. David Goffin, Belgium; 8. If he gets through this minefield, then a 20th Grand Slam title might just suffice.

The home favourite, who beat Grigor Dimitrov on the way to clinching the title, has been prone to petulant outbursts on the court in the past.

(NYSE:TSM) Stock Price
Six equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and four have assigned a buy rating to the company's stock. The recently concluded session had traders exchanging Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (NYSE:TSM) high level.

Despite his achievements in a long career, motivation for Nadal, who needs to reach the quarter-finals to be certain of retaining his world number one ranking, with Federer breathing down his neck, remains undiminished.

"Maybe similar to what Novak or Stan or others are going through this year".

But the year was largely deflating, as he was bundled out early from the grand slams while battling hip problems through a lot of them.

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.

But it could be former No.1, Angelique Kerber rising again as she has been the most outstanding player in the New Year.

Maria Sharapova will also view it as a chance to claim her first Grand Slam since returning from her doping ban. His back has troubled him in recent years, and problems in the build up to the US Open rendered him a shadow of the man who played with such magnificence in Melbourne and at Wimbledon.

"Everyone wants to win a Grand Slam". Zverev is one of just four men to beat Federer in 2017 when he defeated the Swiss great in the Montreal final. She is now the highest-ranked female Australian at 19th in the world.

Carter: By changing how the world views black women, Venus and Serena Williams have changed everything.
