"For now, I'm in the tournament", said Djokovic, who cut short his 2017 after retiring from Wimbledon due to a troublesome right elbow.

The first Grand Slam of 2018 is just about here in the Australian Open from Melbourne.

It was Six-time victor Novak Djokovic will hide as 14th seed for next week's Australian Open in Melbourne, with Rafael Nadal seeded top, federal agency said on Thursday.

"I can't stop laughing outside and inside".

"It's not always the best when you are an athlete so I'm looking forward to it, enjoying the crowd. I wanted to be back on court, unfortunately the elbow wouldn't let me last week".

Federer upset the odds with his triumph in Australia after he won his first Grand Slam ranked outside the ATP's top ten players since getting his hands on his first Major title at the US Open in 2002.

The 12-time grand slam champion, whose ranking has fallen to No.12, pulled out of an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi at the end of the year and subsequently withdrew from the Qatar Open.

"This has been a tough period for me, obviously injury is the greatest enemy a professional athlete can have", the Serbian added.

The Australian Open begins on Monday and, with notable absentees in both draws, there are big prices available on promising players, says Max Liu. "It's a great start".

Venus Williams says Serena is "here in spirit" supporting her in Australia, where she's hopeful of ending an nearly decade-long Grand Slam title drought.

"I'll be over the moon if I can play, which I'm planning to".

Tiley's mood would have improved even further after Nadal returned to the court for an exhibition match at the Kooyong Classic.

Federer, who won last year's final in five sets, has 2/1 odds of winning the title, according to OddsChecker. Wins four or five matches at the Hopman Cup against high-level competition. Their quarter is rounded out by fifth-seeded Dominic Thiem and ninth-seeded Stan Wawrinka, who like Djokovic has not played since Wimbledon. "I certainly will hope I put myself in that position", Sharapova said.

Grigor Dimitrov, the world No 3 and reigning ATP Finals champion, will take on a qualifier in the first round and could meet Australian world No 17 Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round.

"I know it's gonna take more time to be 100 per cent but as long as my knee is doing well, that's the most important".
