A new era on Melbourne Park’s blue hardcourts will begin on Monday when Rafa Nadal begins his Australian Open title defence against young Briton Jack Draper. Spanish player Rafael Nadal carries the torch for the waning golden age at the first Grand Slam after Serena Williams’ “developing away” from tennis and Roger Federer’s retirement as he competes for his third Grand Slam victory at Melbourne Park. The 36-year-old is ranked third at Rod Laver Arena and is playing on the same centre court where, a year ago, he performed the “miracle of Melbourne” by defeating Daniil Medvedev in a five-set classic after falling behind two sets to love.

But tennis moves rapidly, as Nadal noted on Saturday. The top seed conceded his title defence was vulnerable to an early shock following two straight losses in the lead-up because he had only one victory since the U.S. Open in September. Draper, 21, is a young man on the move who recently entered the top 40 after making it to the semifinals of the Adelaide II tournament last week. He has defeated a number of elite players in the past, including Stefanos Tsitsipas and Felix Auger-Aliassime.
