The seeds have been set for Australian Open 2017. Heading up the men’s seeds is new world No.1 Andy Murray, with defending Australian Open champion and fellow world No.1 Angelique Kerber the top seed in the women’s draw.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic is the 2nd seed, while 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has been amazingly seeded no.17!

Milos Raonic and Stan Wawrinka are seeded third and fourth respectively, while Kei Nishikori is the highest seeded Asian in the draw at no.5. Formr world no.1 Rafael Nadal is seeded 9th.

The importance of Nadal and Federer's seeding will not be lost on the other seeds with Nadal being out of the top 8 meaning he could be a fourth round opponent for Murray or Djokovic, while Federer could face the big 2 as early as the third round if the draw is unfavourable for the lead duo.

Meanwhile in the women's section, pre-tournament favourite Serena Williams is seeded second, while her elder sister Venus is the thirteenth seed. Karolina Pliskova is the fifth seed and one to watch in the tournament as will be the seventh seed and reigning French Open champion Garbiñe Muguruza.
