Evergreen Swiss second seed Federer, 36, returns to Melbourne Park in his quest for a record-equalling sixth Australian Open title and 20th grand slam.

Nadal, who is gunning for a 17th major title but only his second Australian Open crown, is making up for lost time from a knee injury at the tail-end of the 2017 season.

Maria Sharapova cruised into the second round of the Australian Open with a 6-1 6-4 win over Tatjana Maria of Germany on Margaret Court Arena.

A knee injury forced the Spanish world number one out of the warm-up Brisbane International, but he said Saturday he "feels good" after intensive practice sessions in Melbourne. For me, it's all about just focusing on myself, taking it one match at a time.

"When I was a little girl watching on TV I would never imagine I would play them (the Williams)".

"That's why I see things more relaxed, you know, at a later stage of my career". "I was lucky", she said. It's always tough because everybody can play'. "The correction and improvements to the service are allowing me to be more efficient and spend less energy", he said.

Until 1946, the tournament did not include any foreign players.

There was no mention at that time of the language that sources said Trump had used, details of which were soon leaked. The White House said Trump would not undergo a psychiatric exam .

Such was the one-sidedness of the contest, one of the most noticeable features was Nadal's choice of attire, with the Spaniard reverting to the sleeveless muscle top that he became renowned for a decade ago. Appeared at the Kooyong exhibition tournament last week. I really hope to be ready. I still have a lot of work to do physically and also tennis wise to be at my top level.

"I just thought that the game and the wins weren't going to come. because I would just run into a red-hot Djokovic or Murray or Nadal or somebody and my game wasn't going to be good enough", Federer recalled. "I'm just going to enjoy that, see where it takes me". If you're in the draw, you give yourself a chance.

With Andy Murray injured, Novak Djokovic returning after a six-month lay-off and Rafael Nadal short of fitness, everything points towards Roger Federer this year in Melbourne. It's a new situation for me.

"Having no expectations was so nice after all these years always having expectations, like now this year again".

The first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open commenced in Melbourne today with the very best of the best in action, fighting it out on the court for the highest honours.
