Who is going to win Australian Open 2018?

With the first Grand Slam of the year 2018 beginning next week,I am really excited.So the question arises,who is going to win it this time.As usual the favourites for Australian Open are Roger Federer,Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and then Wawrinka.Andy is injured and Nadal and Novak have already injury concerns.So that makes Roger a clear favourite though I want Rafael Nadal to win Australian Open and complete a double Career Slam.In the young players,Alexander Zverev and Kyrgios have got the talent to win this title.In women,Serena is not there so favourites are Halep,Stephens,Kvitova and Muguruza.Konta has also got a slight chance of winning Australian Open.I would love to see Wozniacki or Bouchard or Stephens win it this time but I have got a feeling that Venus Williams will win the title.Does anyone agree with me here?Fellow tennis fans?

Well played Federer and Cilic

Cilic played well and at least was a competitive final, however he was never really ahead in the match, always playing catch up, what is that now, 1 win in 10 matches vs Federer

Federer played well but looked. But vulnerable especially at the end of the 4th. Well done though 20th Grand Slam.

I know we had 2 new semi finalists but some players really need to step up. How on Earth Kyrgios is not in the top 8 when so many players were injured at the end of last year, I have no idea.

Justtrue, and there you were thinking Berdych would be the one to trouble fed....

Cilic game can cause fed all sorts of problems and all momentum was with cilic actually at end of fourth.

Fed’s concentration goes st times, he pulled it back, focussed well and went in to win and keep emotions in check until the speeches.

His appalling attitude.

Yes I got that wrong about Berdych, but both have really poor records vs Fed.

Let’s hope Cilic can kick on from here, I still feel he makes too many mistakes, especially under pressure.

Federer will be 87 on a zimmer frame and still schooling people on the court.

Cilic couldn't lose v Nadal but as usual could not keep his emotions in check and keep calm to win 5th set.All credit to Roger Federer.

i think Colic hand gives Fed loads of problems, nerves hit better of Cilic at first and Fed experience showed in the end.

Remember players like Cilic rarely get to finals so don’t build the experience Fed has. Could be different this year with so many top players injured.

The GOAT wins another slam. Nadal off to inject more roids.
