As the biggest tennis stars on the planet are set to lock horns at the first Grand Slam of the year, here we take a look at the path of top 5 seeds for Men’s single title and their road ahead.
Novak Djokovic (Top Seed)
The top-seeded player has relatively tougher draws this time around. The first match is a little tricky for the Serbian as he will be facing Hyeon Chung. The 19-year-old Korean has recently won the ATP’S most improved player award. He then has potential meetings with Quentin Halys, Andreas Seppi and Benoit Paire. A tournament where he has thrived and has been unarguably the best player, it should not be a problem for the Serb to breeze past through these ties. In the quarter-finals, it’s highly likely that he will face the unpredictable Kei Nishikori.
If all the seeds hold, Djokovic will face Roger Federer in the Semi-Final, a match that has got everyone talking.
Though Djokovic has a rough road to the glory, given the form he is in, nobody can bet against him winning his record 6th title in Melbourne.
