AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2018: All the results from the men's and women's singles

Play begins at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday, with a television broadcast on ESPN2 (live streaming via WatchESPN), and will conclude around 7 a.m. on Monday. It's just the same, you know.

This tournament marks the 106th edition of all time, 50th edition in the Open Era, and the 200th overall Grand Slam event of the Open Era.

Federer is set to open the night program at Rod Laver in a match against Aljaz Bedene.

The singularly impressive element of his run to the Brisbane International final was how he bounced back from conceding the first set to Matthew Ebden, Andrey Dolgopolov and Grigor Dimitrov.

The 2018 Australian Open is not the ultimate tennis reunion it could have been.

This is important, not just as the season's first major, but because it will define the year for most of the sport's big names, especially the limping ones. I think he would say 'this is the start of the year and it's all about building blocks'. Martina Navratilova, who, like Court, is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, is one of the more prominent figures who have called for a change.

Even more impressive was Kyrgios' attitude throughout the tournament. Nadal and Cilic played a thriller in Shanghai last October.

Next opponent Svitolina will become the Czech Republic's Katerina siniakova, which the Ukrainian is not without problems beat at the US Open in 2017.

In the last two years at Grand Slams, whenever Serena Williams has been absent, an unknown has thrown her hat in the ring. We were so used to the women's tour being dominated by a couple of players.

Stephens came out of nowhere to win the U.S. Open last year after a lengthy time out with an injury to her left foot. There is even more room on the women's side with the 2016 champion Angelique Kerber back on target and with a new coach, Wim Fissette, after slumping in 2017.

He won four titles last year, including two Masters 1000 events.

While his younger rivals battle their bodies, Federer sails serenely on.

"She did it two years ago in Melbourne and that will give her belief".

That is not writing off home favourite (if we can call him that) Nick Kyrgios, who won the Brisbane last week though he battled injury to win his first ATP tour title on home soil.

There are plenty of other contenders, too. "You can make a case for multiple players that have a chance to win it".

Del Potro's pre-Australian Open preparation took him to the less hyped Auckland Open, where he again remained under the radar.

This is also the man - and at 22, he must be considered a fully-fledged one - who questioned his own commitment to tennis after crashing out in the first round of his last major to John Millman, the then world No. 235.

Britain's world number nine Johanna Konta could figure despite a slow start to the season. Halep recovered from a 5-2 deficit in the first set. "It's just that there is no one dominating, but it's up to them".

David Goffin in action during the Kooyong Classic.

The Romanian fell agonisingly short of a first Grand Slam title in 2017, but was the most consistent of the top players. Isner, the men's No. 16 seed, will open against Matthew Ebden.

Maria Sharpova, the 2008 winner, returns after missing last year's Australian Open because of a drug suspension. But for right now this is a different look.

The 2018 tennis season is in full swing.

"I had a little injury, I don't know how it is".
