Nadal had a stiff back and therefore could not play in the ATP Cup where Spain was knocked out in the Semi Finals. The Spaniard is recovering well from his stiff lower back according to Spain’s ATP Cup captain Pepe Vendrell. Nadal will be looking to improve his last year Australian Open run where he lost to Dominic Thiem in the quarter finals.

Laslo Djere on the other hand comes in as an unseeded player in the Australian Open. He played last at the Antalya open where he lost to Dimitar Kuzmanov in the first round. In the second half of the Australian Open, the world number 56 was not up to the mark. He will be looking to challenge Rafa and book a spot in the second round.
