The tournament includes the Men's and Women's singles, doubles and mixed doubles tournaments. There is also the titles of Junior category and wheelchair tennis in singles and doubles for boys and girls (players under 18), and dual and quad wheelchair. Australian Open 2017 is a tennis tournament played on the Melbourne Park, in Melbourne in Australia. It is the 105 edition of Australian Open. The tournament includes the category. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion in the men's singles, while Angelique Kerber in the women's singles.
The tournament is played on twenty-five fields in Plexicushion surface, including the three main fields of Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, and Margaret Court Arena. Let's take a look at the men's singles and women's boards of the Australian Open just raffled off, with the good fortune that it kissed a few and has definitely turned its back to others.
In the women's draw, the favored first two seeded pairs got complicated. It is known that Serena always begins like a struggling diesel carburetor in the Grand Slam tests and a first round albeit against bruised Belinda Bencic is a good test to that effect. Slightly better went to number 1 in the world, Germany's Angelique Kerber, who drew the Ukrainian Tsurenko, with loose cannon Kasatkina ready to block her way at the level of the second round. The top two seeded cannot be considered the favorites to win the final, but never as in this first Major of the year there are many pretenders to the title and the balance seems to reign supreme.
Karolina Pliskova and Johanna Konta are a little small hail in the top two seeded but their desire to Slam is very strong, who has already scored in the circuit in the first weeks of 2017, the two point straight to their first Major. They are strong, young, explosive and prefer to Aga Radwanska Polish and Slovak Dominika Cibulkova, the top tennis players in the standings but I put slightly under the Czech and English.
Aga Maga would pay gold and her 20 successes in the major circuit for a single joy Slam while the small beater Cibulkova, after a roaring end of 2016 seems somewhat tarnished in these first releases of the new year. If there was a talent of sports justice, Radwanska would be paid off with a victory but her perfect Slam tennis, when she arrives at the climax, becomes lagging and mental strength wobbles inexorably.
Even between the men, the British Murray with the No. 1 ranking could not hold the pressure and take home the trophy at the Australian Open so far. The Serbian Djokovic manages to find the feeling with the victory that counts driving out the ghosts of the crisis and the hugs that everything can and everything they do? Besides the two of them who can point to the full loot?
Difficult debut for Serbia against Fernando Verdasco, recently almost victorious against Nole, but Edmund and one between Gasquet and Dimitrov on the way round. The better way to Murray likely to 4T will find one of Pouille and Isner. Djokovic from his side of the board has Raonic, Monfils and Nadal and Murray Wawrinka fishing, Nishikori, and Federer.
Murray and Djokovic are head and shoulders above the other, just above Wawrinka, Raonic, and Nishikori. The Australian Open 2017 final was held between by Federer and Nadal, in a paradoxical situation. After so many years no one was the clear favorite.
