Top-ranked Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep, as expected, have been given the No. 1 seedings for next week's Australian Open.

Serb Djokovic could then play a rematch of his 2008 final triumph over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round, with a possible quarter-final against Kei Nishikori to follow.

World No 4 Alexander Zverev is in the same half and a blockbuster semi-final looms if both players advance that far.

In the women's draw, Johanna Konta begins her campaign against Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic, who she lost to in Brisbane last week.

He has the potential of a second-round meeting against wildcard entry Jo-Wilfried Tsonga . The pair have met four times in Australian Open finals, with the Serb winning them all.

"The Australian Open hasn't been the quickest of hard courts in the past couple of years, and if I was the tournament director, there is no way they wouldn't keep it that way because it favours [Nick] Kyrgios, most Australians, and definitely Federer".

Aiming for a 21st Grand Slam trophy and a 100th career singles title, Federer will open against Denis Istomin.

Andy Murray will make his return to the Australian Open with a tough first-round match against Roberto Bautista Agut.

The Scot was bundled out of the Brisbane International warm-up last week in round two by Russia's Daniil Medvedev and headed straight to Melbourne to fit in some much-needed practice.

After winning the Australian Open a year ago, Federer skipped the French Open for the third time in a row before losing in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon and the fourth round at the US Open.

The former world number one is playing at Melbourne Park for the first time since 2017 and a year on from hip surgery but looked laboured taking on his long-time rival under match conditions on Margaret Court Arena.

Third-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, who won her first Grand Slam title here past year after a tough final against Halep, is in the same section as Maria Sharapova and has Petra Kvitova at the top of her quarter.

Second seed and 2016 champion Angelique Kerber, bidding for a fourth Grand Slam title, will open against Slovenian Polona Hercog, with a possible quarter-final against 2017 U.S. Open victor Sloane Stephens in the second week.
