Djokovic looks forward to trying out 'new serve' at Australian Open

"I have a good amount of confidence". That fifth set against Rafa was maybe the best set I've ever played.

"I wanted to play a couple of close competition matches".

"I think past year there were periods where I was really good and really bad", he told reporters at Melbourne Park on Saturday.

They're all in the same half of the draw as defending champion Roger Federer, who past year returned from an extended injury time out to beat Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final and end a Grand Slam drought dating back to 2012.

More than any of his wins in Brisbane - including over world No.3 Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-finals - Kyrgios said he was most happy with his headspace through the first fortnight of the year.

No man has more Australian Open titles than Djokovic, who has six in all and - until last year's shocking second-round exit - had won five of the six contested from 2011 to 2016.

Former victor Stan Wawrinka, who hasn't played since Wimbledon but said he has recovered sufficiently from a knee injury, is seeded at nine.

Last season gave renewed hope that Dimitrov might still blossom into the Grand Slam champion he seemed set to become as an extravagantly-talented junior. "I've done really everything in my power, with a team of people around me, to enable me to be right here and to compete in Australian Open".

For me, the Australian Open always, if you are not enough motivated, 100 per cent motivated to play this tournament, probably you don't love this sport", Nadal said.

Andy Murray has had to extend his six-month absence by having hip surgery, while Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka have not played competitively since Wimbledon in July although the pair, unlike the Briton, will be at Melbourne Park.

"It's the start of a new season, an exciting one".

The 22-year-old enjoyed his most consistent year on tour in 2017, finishing in the top 20 after solid runs at Masters 1000 events. He has enough confidence with me, or I have enough confidence with him, to talk about anything I have to talk.

"In terms of professional things, I spoke to him few days ago, speaking about how the life going, how the tennis going", he said of Toni.
