Wawrinka comments on Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Novak Djokovic's dominance

Paul Annacone 'Roger Federer's environment is complex'

No. 1-ranked Djokovic starts at the top of the draw and will open against a qualifier. He has the potential of a second-round meeting against wildcard Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with a potential quarter-final showdown against Kei Nishikori.

And he gets his Australian Open campaign underway against James Duckworth, while Federer takes on Denis Istomin.

Defending champion Wozniacki, who broke through for her maiden Grand Slam title with victory over Halep in last year's final, is in line to face former victor Maria Sharapova in a mouth-watering third round showdown.

MPs vote to further bind Theresa May's hands on Brexit
The de-facto deputy Prime Minister, David Lidington, said the only way to avoid a disruptive no-deal "is for Parliament to endorse and ratify a deal".

"I can't believe it's been a year already", Dane Wozniacki said at the draw ceremony.

Andy Murray has offered a supportive fan free tickets to his opening match of the Australian Open as an apology for being thrashed by Novak Djokovic on Thursday. "If I made 100 at the Australian I'd take it, I'd gladly accept it - and I'll give it all I have".

He 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.

Apple's greatest contribution to mankind will be health, says Tim Cook
Apple's smartphone business may not be going as well as the company would like it to, but Apple has a plan on how to mitigate this.

One of the most intriguing men's first-round matches features 2016 Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic against mercurial Australian Nick Kyrgios, who is unseeded after his ranking slid from 13 into the 50s, but has tour-level wins over Federer, Nadal and Djokovic to his credit.

Williams will face Tatjana Maria in the first round, and could meet either Genie Bouchard or Peng Shaui in the second.

After winning the Australian Open past year, 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. Halep has a tough opening encounter against Kaia Kanepi and a possible third rounder against Venus Williams.

Chandler Parsons, Grizzlies Agree To Part Ways
Parsons' troublesome left knee has been medically cleared for him to return to play since December 21. Since signing with the Grizzlies ahead of the 2016-17 season, Parsons has been riddled with injuries.

"The hip is incredibly difficult to come back from for especially a tennis player and someone that has worked as hard as he's worked, put the miles on", ESPN tennis pundit Patrick McEnroe said. Not just physically, but also mentally, to see that I could beat Grigor Dimitrov twice, he was top-10 at that time.
