The first Grand Slam of 2014 gets underway in Melbourne, with the Australian Open starting the season with a bang. Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka both attempt to defend their titles, whilst Rafael Nadal returns having withdrawn from last year's tournament due to illness. Home favourites Bernard Tomic and Lleyton Hewitt are both on top form, but there are plenty of top names and faces hoping to stop them in their tracks. Bring on the top tennis action!
