It will be a totally different Australian Open 2021 than in the past, starting from the start date with the situation linked to the Pandemic that led the organizers to postpone the start of the Melbourne tournament to next February 8th.
We have to recall that Roger Federer will come back after Melbourne, at the end of February or at the beginning of March, to well recover from the two knee surgeries of 2020. Before this, tennis players will have to face a long and rigid quarantine and will not be able to take advantage of the benefits they have had in the past.
With the first tournaments of 2021 concluded, what will be the 32 seeds of the men’s and women’s tournament also emerge. Among the men, Kei Nishikori and the former US Open winner Marin Clic stand out among the absent in the 32, without forgetting the tough Reilly Opelka, Alexander Bublik and home idol Nick Kyrgios and, maybe, Andy Murray.
There is a lot of curiosity about the Australian, who has been standing still for some time, and who will return to coincide with the home tournament. The young italian talent Jannik Sinner will also not be seeded, but will he be one of the most insidious dangers in the draw for any seeded of the Australian tournament.
Attention also to the experienced veterans Sam Querrey and Richard Gasquet.
