  • AUSTRALIA OPEN: Federer drawn against Bedene, Nadal meets Burgos

Serena Williams, Andy Murray, Kei Nishikori and Victoria Azarenka are all big-name players who won't be participating in the Australian Open this year. The Dane will also look to improve upon her record of semi finals in 2011 and win her first ever Grand Slam title.

Maamoun celebrated making his Grand Slam debut by battling past El Salvador's Marcelo Arevalo 6-2, 5-7, 7-5.

Nadal's biggest challenge, and that of compatriot Moya, will be to beat tournament favourite and world number two Federer after losing all his four matches against the Swiss last season. "Lleyton (Hewitt) and Pat Rafter, who I was lucky to watch and also lucky to play against him".

"I feel ready! Idemo (let's go)!"

"I am disappointed but I have talked to the WTA doctors and my team after the match and following their recommendation, I have chose to withdraw from the tournament", Muguruza said in a statement.

But former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash on Monday said he expected the Serbian to be the most unsafe of the injured stars.

"It's the first time in my career that I've had such a long break.Never needed the help of Tennis Australia' says Bernard Tomic. Actually we didn't have a chance to support each other today because we were playing nearly at the same time but it's always good to have a close friend from your country with you, to be with you, traveling with you, sharing everything", said the 27-year-old Safwat. "Of course I had doubts coming here, personally I don't know what is going to happen". I'm happy with how I'm performing now.

Real Madrid dealt Kane blow as Levy insists Tottenham stars going nowhere

The draw for the year's first Grand Slam event took place on Thursday night in Melbourne.

Wawrinka's 2017 season came to an end after a shock defeat to Russian Daniil Medvedev in the first round of Wimbledon and announced that he will be missing the rest of the season after undergoing two operations on a knee cartilage injury.

The tennis community and sporting world yearns for another instalment in the Federer-Nadal rivalry but while form is temporary and class is permanent, a lack of preparation may rob the Australian public of another unforgettable event.

The 19-time Grand Slam victor is hoping to repeat his success from 2017 and establish himself as the greatest player the world has ever seen. I've been developing my mental state.

"Still a lot to do but I'm feeling really positive, so looking forward to starting".

"But not yet. Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams".
