Top stars put in final tuneups ahead of Melbourne

As the two tennis stars limbered up in front of a packed arena, Marvel heroes Spider-Man and Thor had the chance to show off their skills with the racket during the family-friendly event.

"Last year was an amazing final and it's great to be back", he said. Her career at Grand Slams looks like a nearly storyline - making the finals of the French Open in 2014 and 2017; semifinals at Wimbledon in 2014 and the US Open in 2015. Remain this afternoon and tomorrow, the last practice before the competition start for me. Kyrgios, who made the Australian Open quarter-finals in 2015, will begin his 2018 campaign against Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva.

"What a comeback it was and it was definitely the highlight of the year". "I feel relaxed", he said.

"Having no expectations was so nice after all these years always having expectations, like now this year again. I feel ready to start", she said.

Though the 2018 tennis season has already officially gotten underway, things don't really get going until the players arrive at Melbourne Park for the Australian Open.

"On the other side of the coin, it's probably more intriguing because you have 20 players that can win a grand slam". I have a lot of friends that travel the world with me.

"On Wednesday of the first week, Novak had lost and Andy had lost and there was still some doubt around Roger and Rafa and Serena's health and even Venus' (Williams) health".

Evert, however, believes it could be Romanian Halep's turn. "It was tough. Obviously, it's doable because I did it. I'd definitely like to do it again". "I know that if I get myself to desired level of performance - mental and physical - that I can actually have a good chance to go far in the tournament", said Djokovic.

"But at the end of the day I just need to know it's a long year".

When Roger Federer picks up his racket to face Aljaž Bedene in the Australian Open on Monday, he may be playing the match that determines whether he will defend his crown. The ball reacts very swiftly off the surface and if his knee is 100%, then it's not going to take an awful lot for him to start hitting the ball well. Ironically last year, Serena faced Bencic in her opening Australian Open match.

With the tournament beginning tomorrow, the Swiss is being widely regarded as the most likely to triumph in Melbourne.

There's a potential semi-final against Djokovic, who is aiming for a record seventh Australian Open title but is seeded 14th as he returns from six months on the sidelines with a right elbow injury.

The pair split the four grand slam trophies between them last year, with Nadal, at 31, finishing the season as the ATP rankings' oldest world number one.

Kyrgios said he had no injury problems heading into the tournament.

Her compatriot Sloane Stephens, seeded 13th in Melbourne, proved that at the U.S. Open as she came out of nowhere to claim a maiden slam against Madison Keys. Nadal is coming into the tournament after suffering a knee injury in later stages of 2017.
