Djokovic in east draw

Aap
Sunday, January 12, 2014

SYDNEY - Unbeaten in four months, three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic has firmed as Australian Open favourite after being handed the kindest draw of the big guns.

While world No.1 Rafael Nadal was thrown into a first-round showdown with unseeded dangerman Bernard Tomic and Andy Murray and Roger Federer were slated to clash in the quarter-finals, Djokovic was handed a much more straight forward path.

The Serb opens against Slovakia's world No.90 Lukas Lacko and is drawn to meet 15th seed Fabio Fognini — who withdrew injured from this week's Sydney International — in the fourth round.
