Andy Murray to face Bautista Agut in Australian Open first round

Roger Federer reveals what he will do in ten years

Murray is playing in Australia under his protected ranking of world number two, which is used to help players who have suffered long-term injuries.

Top-ranked Djokovic and defending champion Federer enter the season-opening major equal with Roy Emerson, who won his six Australian singles championships between 1961-67, before the Open era.

Men's top seed Djokovic, who was defending his title when he lost to Istomin, will first meet a qualifier in his bid for a record seventh Melbourne title and third Grand Slam crown in succession following wins at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Britain's Andy Murray will open his Australian Open campaign against Spain's 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

Men's second seed Rafael Nadal opens against Australian James Duckworth, fourth seed Alexander Zverev starts against Slovenian Aljaz Bedene, and last year's runner-up Marin Cilic plays another local in Bernard Tomic.

Last year's semi-finalist Kyle Edmund, seeded 13th, looms as a possible fourth round match-up for the Spaniard, who could then face big-serving South African Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals if the draw follows the seedings, and potentially Federer in the semis.

Murray won only two games in an incomplete practice match with Djokovic at Melbourne Park, showing signs he's still not fully fit after spending most of the last 18 months off the tour. "If I made 100 at the Australian I'd take it, I'd gladly accept it - and I'll give it all I have".

"The first time I came back here and hit on the courts, I thought, 'OK, I'm home, "' the third-seeded Wozniacki said of her return to Melbourne Park.

Wozniacki finally broke her grand slam duck 12 months ago but struggled through the rest of 2018 before revealing a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. For me it's just taking it day by day, doing the right things, taking even better care of my body.

It will be the first time for Wang to head into a Grand Slam as a seeded player.
