Australian Open Draw 2019: Federer, Murray, Nadal & Djokovic Learn Their Fate

20% Complete

Defending champion Federer will start the Australian Open 2019 against Denis Istomin – who famously knocked out Djokovic in 2017 – in round one.

Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, in the same half as Federer and Murray and will open against James Duckworth.

Andy Murray has been handed an opening Australian Open clash with Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut and is in the same quarter of the draw as Roger Federer.

Murray put in a worrying display in a practice match against Novak Djokovic on Thursday afternoon, holding his serve just once in a 6-1 4-1 defeat to the world No. 1, and he will have to beat a player who defeated the Serbi in Doha just a week ago to progress to round two.

Djokovic – like Federer – is chasing a seventh title down under and begins against a qualifier, though he could face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round.

Alexander Zverev, who has been struggling with injury, is in the same half as the Serb. Nick Kyrgios will take on Milos Raonic in the first round within Zverev’s quarter.

Incredibly, the winner of Raonic-Kyrgios could meet Stan Wawrinka, who meets Ernests Gulbis in his opening match.

Kyle Edmund – who has to defend semi-final points – faces a tricky opener against Tomas Berdych, with Cam Norrie taking on American Taylor Fritz.
