Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are both aiming to become the first player to win seven men's Australian Open titles in the Open era.

Caroline Wozniacki defends the women's trophy after celebrating her first Grand Slam victory in Melbourne 12 months ago at the 43rd attempt, while seven-time champion Serena Williams and Simona Halep will also fancy their title chances.

Britain's Johanna Konta, Katie Boulter and Dan Evans have all progressed to the second round but Andy Murray - who announced his plan to retire after Wimbledon - and last year's semi-finalist Kyle Edmund are out of the tournament.
