The main draw of the 2016 Australian Open begins Jan. 18 in Melbourne (Jan. 17 on the East Coast of the United States). Novak Djokovic will look to defend his men’s singles title after opening the year with a title in Qatar, where he dominated Rafael Nadal 6–1, 6–2 in the final. Djokovic has won five Australian Open titles over his career.

Serena Williams took home the 2015 title last year and enters the tournament ranked No. 1 in the world. Williams’s first match of 2016 at the Hopman Cup was cut short with knee inflammation, as she retired in the second set.

Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Roger Federer are the top three seeds on the men's side. Serena Williams, Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza are the top women's seeds.
