Djoko, Wawrinka and Muguruza all battling to make the Aussie Open

For the culturally-oriented, Flanders is truly a paradise of art and culture, as the video below shows. He was playing extremely well last week in Brisbane, taking on Grigor Dimitrov stroke for stroke in the quarter-finals in Brisbane, and then he lost his footing, rolled his ankle and fell over.

'So as long as they're here they will be competing at the highest level and fighting for Grand Slam titles, it will be hard to beat them. "Every player is here with all his heart and energy, trying to do his best". New rules reverting Grand Slams to 16 seeds from the current 32 are due to come into force in 2019. The two modern day greats who squared off in an epic in last year's final will once again have an opportunity to add another chapter to their famous FEDAL rivalry.

The deficit barely bothered Nadal, who showed some of his classic form in closing the gap to 3-3. You're not just breaking down the body during matches; you're breaking it down during training.

"At that time, it wasn't as bad so I was managing it". It was the first year since 2009 that Djokovic didn't reach at least one Grand Slam final.

"This is not normal", Federer told a crowd of hundreds of fans before the draw on Thursday at Margaret Court Arena.

Djokovic is poised to return to action after recovering from his injury-plagued 2017 and he's expected to challenge for the title as well, but the Serb star says it is Federer and Nadal who should be feared most. "I only like to see the draw sheet and see who my first round opponent is".

The world No 1 came agonisingly close to winning a second title in Melbourne last year, losing in five thrilling sets to Roger Federer in the final.

Nick Kyrgios has a notionally simpler path. He will play world No 100 Rogerio Dutra-Silva in what ought to be an untroubled opener before a projected third-round meeting with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

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.

In the women's draw, top seed Simona Halep faces 17-year-old Australian qualifier Destanee Aiava in the opening round and is likely to face 16th seed Elena Vesnina in the fourth round.

Williams remains, at 23 Grand Slam singles titles, one short of Court's record.

Court, a Pentecostal pastor, has strong views on homosexuality.

Federer's four victories last year over his old foe also means he has won five matches in a row against Nadal for the first time in his career. An early test against big serving John Isner, who is seeded 16th, is also on the cards for the numero uno. The first time he broke the hegemony was in 2011 when he won three Majors and reached the semifinal of the other, and put together one of the best seasons ever played. "That Margaret has definitely homophobic views does not take away those accomplishments, no doubt about that". It's not horrible but not easy either. "No, there's no chance".

Players have complained that the tour is too hectic but they are forced to play in maximum tournaments to keep their ranking where it is.
