Federer and Kerber can rise from Australian Open ashes

Federer and Kerber can rise from Australian Open ashes

Rafael Nadal showed that talk of his demise had been exaggerated by winning the French and US Open titles past year although he faces a battle to repeat those feats without his lifelong coach and uncle Toni while also fighting familiar injury troubles. "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. The US Open champion said that she needed an extra week's rehab.

Novak Djokovic has passed his long-awaited return to the court with flying colours declaring he "feels great" ahead of next week's Australian Open.

The former World No 1 took a break from tennis after winning her 23rd Grand Slam at Melbourne past year due to her pregnancy.

"All these things all play into it but at the end of the day I've been in this position thankfully many times before". The world number four starts tournament against Thomas Fabbiano of Italy. Obviously I'm very happy with the way it went today.

Williams' quarter also includes fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina and 13th-seeded Sloane Stephens, who won last year's U.S. Open but has lost all seven matches she's played since.

He said: "I don't want to be overconfident". The Spaniard will be followed by last year's champion and his long time rival on court and great friend of it, Roger Federer as the 2nd seed for the event.

Snowy, windy conditions expected Thursday morning
The weather service said there will be a brief period of freezing rain and sleet that will glaze roads, bridges and sidewalks. There's a chance for a light mix at the tail end with a touch of freezing rain, sleet or snow (especially NW Connecticut).

The Australian Open is the second straight Grand Slam to be badly hit by injury issues.

"It's not a secret that I have my sights on 25".

In Sydney on Tuesday, Britain's best hope for honours in Melbourne, Johanna Konta, survived a thorough examination of the hip that gave up on her in Brisbane last week but could not get past the player she beat in last year's final in her home town, Agnieszka Radwanska.

The Swiss will be gunning for a 20th grand slam title, but following Thursday's draw, the heat will be on for the 36-year-old in Melbourne.

However, perhaps the most significant indicator of who could shine brightest in 2018 came in October when Caroline Wozniacki battled to a maiden WTA Finals title, displaying a new brand of ruthless tennis that suggested a first grand slam was imminent.

Nadal hasn't played competitive tennis since withdrawing from the season-ending ATP World Tour finals due to a knee injury.
