Australian Open: Rafael Nadal embarks on new journey without Uncle Toni

Simona Halep and Rafael Nadal have been confirmed as the top seeds for the Australian Open, beginning on Monday.

Federer has been drawn in the same quarter of the draw as risky "floaters" Milos Raonic and Juan Martin del Potro, while the biggest threat to his progress to the quarter-finals is seventh-seed David Goffin, who beat the Swiss star in the ATP Finals in November.

Serena Williams decided not to defend her Australian title, saying that just four months after having her first child that her tennis hadn't yet returned to a level where she felt could win a Grand Slam title. "I feel myself more or less playing well". It's the first match of the year and I don't think further than that. "The club in Kooyong is great, but at the same time the conditions of play are completely different from here", he explained. Talking with the Australian Open, yeah, they gave us the chance to play like an open practice but closer to the match for the crowd. The job was done the right way.

If he wins Australian Open, it will be his 17th grand slam and will also put him in an elite list of few players who have won all the Grand Slams at least twice in their career.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios is the sole men's seed but, unfortunately, misses out on a coveted top-16 ranking by one place.

"For me, the Australian Open always, if you are not 100 percent motivated to play this tournament, you probably you don't love this sport", he said.

"Everyone starts from zero. I start from zero again", he added.

Nadal finished on top of the year-end rankings after winning the French and USA open crowns.

"It's the start of a new season, an exciting one". He has enough confidence with me, or I have enough confidence with him, to talk about anything I have to talk. He loves me. I love him. If he has something to tell me, he calls me and tells me.
