Novak Djokovic may have been pushed to second place by Nadal, but as the defending champion, he is expected to be for than a handful for his opponents Down Under.
Roger Federer's recent form has been short of expectations. The Swiss, for the first time, has fallen out of the top five in the rankings, but he is still a contender for the Australian Open 2014.
Andy Murray created history last year when he became the first Britisher to win the Wimbledon after 77 years. While form and fitness have not been his best friends in the recent months, Murray is no pushover as looks to add to his tally of Grand Slams.
Stanislas Wawrinka may be an underachiever, but the world number eight is known to spring up a surpise in major tounaments. His recent triumph in the Chennai Open will certainly give him the confidence to upset the balance of things.
