From January 16, 2017 the tennis tournament “Australian Open 2017” will begin. It is Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic who people are paying attention to in this competition.
In women’s tennis, 2016 winner Angelique Kerber is aiming for two consecutive victories, but Serena Williams will get in her way.
The good news is, Roger Federer will return. His world ranking has slipped to 16th place, but I’m looking forward to seeing him compete against Djokovic or Murray this year.

In the recent tennis tournament in Brisbane, Djokovic beat Murray in the finals as Murray proved he needed to work on his stamina. However, in the Australian Open, he might make a comeback against Djokovic since he is after all, number 1 in men’s tennis.
Will Roger Federer have the opportunity to play against Djokovic or Murray again?
The new generation of tennis with sensational stars like Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic might also offer us exciting games and spectacular play like never before.
It would be a great start to the new year if you predicted correctly and won in the Australian Open 2017!
