The Spaniard’s season didn’t get off to the perfect begin, as he was in Adelaide 2 seeded 2 and misplaced within the second spherical. The Spaniard will look to enhance his efficiency on this Grand Slam, which was the fourth spherical. With factors dropped, the seed will need to at the least equal that.
Cachin made the primary draw for the primary time. On the Australian Open for less than the second time, the Argentine will probably be thought of the underdog.

Final 12 months Gasquet was knocked out within the second spherical.

Chrissie at 5
yosh: Cressy is enjoyable, quirky, and really efficient in longer matches. His serve is hard to deal with, and I do not suppose Ramos-Vinolas is constant sufficient on the return to not get pissed off. Chrissie at 4
Glenys: Cressy performed Adelaide 1 shedding to Kokkinakis in straight units. The American will need to enhance rapidly, as Chrissie reached the fourth spherical final 12 months. It was the farthest he had are available any of the key leagues.
Ramos Vinolas was pushed to a few units in Adelaide 2, earlier than lastly shedding within the first spherical, not probably the most excellent of preparations.

Ron is the fifth seed. The Dane misplaced within the first spherical at Adelaide 1, and Ron is taking part in for the second time on the Australian Open, and will probably be trying to do higher than final 12 months the place he misplaced within the first spherical. Ron has been enhancing all through the previous season, and at 19 years outdated is a prospect for the long run. Ron at 3
