Roger Federer won two Grand Slam titles last year and he has another in his sights at the start of 2018 as he gets his Australian Open campaign underway on Tuesday.

The five-time winner of the event plays Britain’s Aljaz Bedene in the first round and is expected to breeze past his opponent who has never been beyond the first round in Melbourne.

He may be 36-years-old, but Federer is still the world number two and he goes into the Aussie Open as the clear favourite with the bookmakers.

This is the only Grand Slam at which Bedene has failed to win a match in the main draw and his wait is likely to go on.
