Australian Open 2020: Federer and Djokovic drawn in same half

  • Roger Federer is a six-time champion in Australia

Tennis Australia said it expected the "Rally for Relief" to raise "hundreds of thousands of dollars" to add to the more than Aus$2.8 million (US$1.9 million) already stumped up by the global tennis community.

"So for the Australian Open I think that Novak is the slight favourite ahead of Nadal and then I think Roger Federer and Stefanos Tsitsipas and other players like Daniil Medvedev are in the mix, but I would say Novak is the big favourite for sure".

Australian Nick Kyrgios has pledged 200 Australian dollars for every ace he hits this month. I know that Tennis Australia and Australian Open will be here... and you guys too (referring to fans).

"We always require the best tennis from our opponents and between the three of us I think the intensity, the anticipation before the match just obliges us to step it up and play our best because otherwise we're going to lose". "I just want to have a little fun out here tonight and hopefully we can overcome this".

His comments came after Nadal announced at a charity event at the Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday that he and Federer were donating $172,000 towards the bushfire relief efforts, according to Forbes. "Hopefully, that keeps inspiring the people to support this awful disaster that we were going through and help to recover all the things that we need".

Before that, however, she must use the Australian Open to prove the difficulties of last season are all behind her and show that she means business in 2020.

"It is probably one of the most open events usually".

The super Serb also leads Federer (26-23) and Nadal (29-26) head-to-head in two of the most compelling rivalries in tennis history.

A match neither player, nor the crowd, took seriously, with Federer reiterating Kyrgios' message of raising awareness of the bushfire crisis and supporting victims.

But it was Williams' team which brought serious star power as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem and Petra Kvitova were named alongside the icon Williams. "You come together for other people and I think that's an inspiration for many other countries around the world watching this right now" he continued.

"That was the idea".

Australian Open organizers released the policy Friday, three days before the beginning of main-draw action, following complaints from some players who questioned whether qualifying matches should have been held this week even though Melbourne's air quality was among the worst in the world because of smoke arriving from fires about 100 miles east of the city.
