Federer in right space as Open rivals play catch up

"It's going to be an interesting first few days of the event", Tiley said. "I've started to play more consistently", she said.

For men's tennis on the regular ATP World Tour, fans in the USA can expect to see mostly all tournaments broadcast live on Tennis Channel or Tennis Channel Plus, the network's pay-for streaming service, throughout the year. Okay, I have even more points to defend this year rather than last year.

The first Grand Slam of the year serves off in Melbourne on January 15 and the most profound questions that will be answered should be whether the young guns could overhaul the "dinosaurs" in both the men and women's draws.

WTA fans in America can call up their cable companies and purchase an obsolete and expensive channel package to access beIN Sports, the TV broadcaster of all WTA events played outside the USA, or subscribe to WTA TV, the tour's new streaming platform serving as an alternative to their prior partnership with ATP Media and TennisTV.

The change was a part of a handful of experimental rules announced in November.

"Yeah, it's great times in my life and in my career that we can make it all work, that I can still play tennis".

The other three multiple Grand Slam winners of recent years have not been seen since Wimbledon.

Victory for Venus would see her eclipse Ken Rosewall as the oldest player ever to win a major. "It's a reward you deserve because you got to top 100, and it's big money at these tournaments". If he gets through this minefield, then a 20th Grand Slam title might just suffice.

I said hundred times, I believe that the doubts are good because when you have doubts, it's because you aren't too arrogant, because you have respect for your opponent, because you have respect for the game, and because you don't consider yourself unbelievable good. "But hopefully this is enough incentive to do the right thing".

He was due to play in an exhibition in Abu Dhabi between Christmas and new year, and feature in the Brisbane International in the first week of the year, but withdrew as he felt he was "still not ready".

"It's going to be a big-time telling sign for how the rest of the event is going to go".

The truculent figure who has openly admitted to "tanking" - deliberately not playing to his abilities - up to eight times in his troubled past is just an awkward memory.

He said: "With age I feel like I play down my chances just because I don't think a 36-year-old should be a favourite of a tournament". A year ago, as he came back from a knee injury, he thought reaching the fourth round would be a real result - and he ended up beating Nadal in the final.

"I'm just glad to be back playing tennis, having an opportunity to compete yet again in the big tournaments".

"I think we're professional, we know how to warm up, we know what to do". But still, that's great for Krajinovic and Lu because there's not many people that would.

"I knew I had to play really aggressive and stay very consistent".
