Federer is bidding to win successive Australian Opens for the first time since 2006-07.

If Federer does manage to go back-to-back, he will become the first man in tennis history to win 20 grand slam titles. I played juniors with her and she was dominating all the junior tournaments when I was young and we were really good friends. "I wanted to play a couple of close competition matches".

While some generations have obviously outperformed some others, no generation has been as disappointing as the rather forgettable generation I'm referring to: Players born between 1990 and 1994.

Dimitrov and Jack Sock are the only champions at the premier ATP events, each having one a single title in 2017.

Second-seeded Federer and No. 14-seeded Djokovic have nearly traded places. "Hopefully I can do so", in Australia.

They're in the same half of the draw - along with No. 4 Alexander Zverev, No. 5 Dominc Thiem, No. 7 David Goffin and No. 9 Stan Wawrinka, the 2014 Australian Open victor who is also returning from injury. "Moya has come with new ideas and new methods of working that have worked well and we are excited". I'm not going to say quarter-finals, semi-finals, anything like that. "So that's the good news".

Federer, of course, proved everyone wrong in emphatic style toppling four top 10 players - Tomas Berdych, Kei Nishikori, StanislasWawrinka and Rafael Nadal - en route to the title.

But the Spanish star said Saturday he feels good and his motivation remains strong.

It's not the first time that they received this prize, but now it was the first time that they have been honoured jointly.

Chelsea fans unhappy with Antonio Conte after questionable substitutions in Leicester stalemate
Chelsea stayed in third place, behind second-place Manchester United on goal difference and 15 points off leader Manchester City . I understand Southampton are unhappy like I was not one time , more than one time when the mistake is against us.

"I don't feel pressure. I don't want to look ahead at all".

At No. 3, Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza will seek to complete three-fourths of the career Grand Slam by age 24, even as few will favor her to do so.

The match-up may work in his favour with the Czech Republican carrying an 0-7 record against Australian in grand slams.

He missed warmup events in Abu Dhabi and Brisbane but appeared untroubled in an exhibition match win over Austrian world number five Dominic Thiem at Melbourne Park on Friday.

Women's top seeds: 1.

"There's a lot of great players", she said. This enables us the option of the plethora of candidates (including Djokovic) in quarter three, as well as Federer in quarter four, and bettors who aren't put off by backing odds-on shots can consider this possibility.

Gilbert, who has worked with the likes of Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray in a successful coaching career, would not be surprised to see the 36-year-old defend his title in the first grand slam of the year.

He is returning from six months on the sidelines with a right elbow injury.

"I played better than I thought might happen (on Wednesday) and most importantly I played without pain".
