Tennis Canada ‏@Tennis_Canada

#CdnTennis players who will be in the main draw at the #AusOpen: Jesse Levine, Rebecca Marino, Milos Raonic & Daniel Nestor (doubles).
Marino got a special direct entry into the main draw, so good for her.

Wozniak is still recovering from injury (would have been in the main draw) and Pospisil contracted a virus that has hampered his training so he withdrew from qualifying.

Tournament begins January 14.

Canadian men were 2-2 in the first round of qualifying.

Diez (making his major tournament debut) and Polansky won.

Chvojka and Dancevic lost.

The four women begin today.

Raonic playing a tuneup lost to Hewitt. Raonic not exactly in great form going into the AO.

Serena is in Vika's half and not Sharapova's. Kvitova playing Schiavone first round. Lisicki-Wozniacki first round.

That screen is too small to read. Surely they could zoom in when placing the players in their allocated line.

Murray in Federer's half. Typical luck. Fed playing Paire in the first round. Berdych in Djoker's quarter; Tipsarevic in Ferrer's; Delpo in Murray's and Tsonga in Fed's.

Couldn't make out who he was facing first but it looked like Robin Haase from the Netherlands?

Raonic playing Hajek in the first round I believe. Good draw for him. Forgot which other top seeds were in his draw.

Nishikori playing Ferrer in the R16.

Dolgopolov-Monfils first round as well as Mathieu-Djokovic. Kohlschreiber would play Fed in the third round. Bad luck for him.

Fed looking at Paire and Davydenko in the first two rounds. Not what I was hoping for at all.

Hewitt never gets any luck in the slams either. Faces Tipsarevic first round.

No easy matches for Nole. Damn... Berdych will be very tricky too. It will be a tough going from first round on.

He did get the better half though... (as of now).

I disagree. Nole owns Berdych quite comfortably actually. Mathieu is a talented player, but realistically not talented enough and way too much of a choker to pull off the upset. Same goes for Wawrinka. Either Harrison or Giraldo should be fodder for him in the second round. I just can't see him not making the final. It's his best event and he has a favorable draw to get there.

Pulling for Del Potro, at least for a final.

Pretty sweet looking draw for Nole, but Andy is in for no picnic with a potential Del Potro/Federer/Djokovic run.

I'm just very pessimistic when it comes to my favorite teams/players. I still expect him to make the finals at least. Anything less... and it will be a big disappointment.

Murray-Federer semi-final should be good, if Roger can make it that far.

Rusty-Tipsy, probably on the night session, should be something special.

Well no Canadians survived through qualifying.

And we will have a new world #4 when the rankings come out on Monday!
