Pre-Aussie Open tournaments have just started, Brisbane and Perth.
Brisbane has a very strong field this year.
Federer has opted to go the Hopman Cup, a good coup for them.
Good start to the year for Nick Kyrgios at the Hopman Cup coming back from his suspension, with a win over Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez.
Overall the Aussies lost, Daria Gavrilova a little bit rusty in singles, and they lost the mixed doubles.https://au.sports.yahoo.com/tennis/a/336...pman-cup/#page1
