Good news for Roger Federer after the Australian Open draw.

In Nadal’s half

The most important thing for the world no.3 is that he fell in Rafael Nadal’s half. Of course, the Spaniard is an extremely tough customer, but he has been struggling a lot with his body when getting deep in the tournaments and in 2018 he had to withdraw from the Australian Open when he was in the quarters and the US Open semifinal. Therefore if Roger gets deep in the draw, he would be the favorite against Nadal in a possible semifinal.

R1  – Denis Istomin
R2  – A qualifier
R3  – Monfils
R4  – Tsitsipas
