Djokovic top men’s seed prior to Australian Open

Graphic News

January 14-27, 2019 -- The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, takes place in Melbourne.

This year’s Australian Open is shaping up as a potential minefield for the top-ranked men with a host of big-name rivals lurking unseeded in the draw.

Injuries and or loss of form resulted in some dramatic ranking slumps in 2018, making for an extraordinary list of unseeded talent that could cause an early upset.

Former champion Stan Wawrinka and five-time runner up Andy Murray, together with former top 10 players Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and enigmatic Australian Nick Kyrgios, are among those who are not seeded for the year’s opening grand slam.

Any of them could be drawn to face the top three seeds, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, as early as the first round, a nightmarish proposition for the tournament favourites.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
