World number one Rafa Nadal embarks on a new era without his coach and uncle in the players' box at the Australian Open but the Spaniard said he would always welcome advice from his lifelong mentor with open arms.
Young gun Zverev had little luck in his first Australian Open draw as a top five seed with either Wawrinka, who plays Ricardas Berankis, or Djokovic potentially standing in his path in the quarterfinals.
Nadal almost claimed a second Australian Open title last year, only to be edged by Roger Federer in a thrilling final. Even if it's 100 per cent healed, after six months of no competition, you never know how you're going to react, so let's see. After that, Federer waited five long years until he tasted Grand Slam success again. I really hope to be ready.

It was the first public test for Djokovic, 30, who shut down his 2017 season after Wimbledon due to an elbow issue.
At the 14th rank, Djokovic may run into a tough opponent early on but the win against Thiem has set him up as a potential finalist.
Federer has been drawn in the same quarter of the draw as dangerous 'floaters' Milos Raonic and Juan Martin del Potro, while the biggest threat to his progress to the quarter-finals is seventh-seed David Goffin, who beat the Swiss star in the ATP Finals in November.

The Australian Open, the first grand slam of the 2018 season, starts Monday with everyone wondering if Roger Federer can repeat his remarkable victory 12 months ago. I feel like I am maturing a lot. "Right now it's at the level where I can compete, and every day is getting better", Djokovic informed. Not trying to sound cocky or anything, but I've always said that I've always been working hard physically, I'm always trying to improve the performance at the grand slams.
Nadal's career has regularly been disrupted by injuries, but he sees a need for a more thorough examination of the tennis schedule after the latest spate of injuries. "Of course, I'm pretty happy and excited with what I have achieved". He has only had a one-match workout at the exhibition Kooyong Classic in Melbourne ahead of the Grand Slam.
No one should write off Maria Sharapova, as she possesses a quiet confidence that could see her go all the way despite all the aggression directed towards her by other players because of her dope ban. "I did it. I wanted to win a Masters 1000 event and I did it. I haven't dreamt that much about winning at the O2, but I did it".
