Halep feels like 'real number one' heading into Australian Open

Halep feels like 'real number one' heading into Australian Open

She said: "It's big difference I can say inside myself because I did what I wanted to do".

"I think you also need a little bit of luck".

"2017 (Australian Open was) a special situation".

The case of mistaken identity is nothing new to Murray, who has had to cope with mistaken correspondence due to his namesake's two Wimbledon victories, US Open triumph, Olympic gold medals and more. "I'm just trying to learn my body, getting to know my body even better".

"She doesn't seem to be missing it right now". As the first of the four Grand Slam events of the year, it's sure to be worth a watch.

The 23-year-old, who will climb into top 70 as a result, beat Monday's opponent Fritz on his way to the final. I think she came back to a very, very high level of fitness.

"It's really sad", she said.

After her breakthrough here a year ago, she didn't get beyond the fourth round at the other majors, but says she feels like she's hitting the ball well. "I always had good relationship with him".

Court, now 76, won 24 singles Grand Slams from 1960-73 - 11 Australian Opens, five French Opens, three Wimbledons and five US Opens.

Osaka is the leading contender among the younger generation of players, warming up for Melbourne by making the semi-finals of the Brisbane International.

Wozniacki, seeded third at this year's tournament, said she was carefully managing her arthritis, a condition which sometimes leaves her so exhausted she can barely move her arms. The three-time Grand Slam victor said he hopes to retire after the Wimbledon tournament in July, but could step away from the sport by the end of this month's Australian Open, depending on his health.

World number one Djokovic played Murray in a practice match three days ago and said it was obvious that there were serious problems.

Uncertainties over Rafael Nadal fitness remains as he pulled out of Brisbane warm-up.

The former world number one hopes to bring the curtain down on his career at Wimbledon later this year.

But after overcoming an elbow injury that required surgery, he stormed to Wimbledon and US Open titles last summer, taking his Grand Slam tally to 14 and propelling him back to the world No. 1 spot. The first Grand Slam of the year kicks-off the sporting calendar and the Melbourne contest in 2019 is eagerly anticipated.

"It was my first major trophy, that obviously served as a great springboard for my career", Djokovic said as he prepared to open his assault on a seventh crown against American Mitchell Krueger on Tuesday.

He added: 'During my training block (in Miami last month) I spoke to my team and told them I can't keep doing this.

"When I played Roger, when I played Rafa, I wasn't as scared of those guys as I was of Andy".

Federer, now 37, remains the chief threat to the Serb and he sounded a warning Sunday. "'I would have loved to have played him when he was in his prime as I am now, it would maybe have been a much more competitive match".
