He was forced to withdraw from last year's season-ending ATP World Tour Finals with another injury to his troublesome knee, and has yet to set the world on fire since making his return.

"I'll be over the moon if I can play", he said. "The club in Kooyong is great, but at the same time the conditions of play are completely different from here", he explained.

"We made a decision to start later because we needed some more practice". 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.

"I think he's incredibly talented". The job was done the right way.

World number one Rafa Nadal has been handed a more favourable draw, opening against Victor Estrella Burgos and with Marin Cilic the biggest threat in his quarter of the draw.

"But everyone starts from zero".

"I'm just glad to be back playing tennis, having an opportunity to compete yet again in the big tournaments".

Entering as the No. 1 seed for the first time at a major and at a tournament where she's had back-to-back first-round exits, two-time French Open finalist Halep opens against teenage wild-card entry Destanee Aiava.

Toni Nadal is now coaching at the Rafael Nadal Academy, with his nephew under the tutelage of Carlos Moya. She said it didn't leave her enough time to feel confident of winning a major. He loves me. I love him. "If he have something to tell me, he call me and tell me".
