(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIAN OPEN DEFENDING CHAMPION ROGER FEDERER SAYING ON WINNING 100 CAREER TITLES : "Yeah, I mean, look, 99 is already an incredible number.

I could live happily ever after with 99 too, but if you are so close and knowing that I am going to be playing this season I will give it a go.

Obviously every tournament I go to, people might talk about it, like we are talking about it now.

Again, not trying to think too far ahead, but sure if it were to happen with defending the title here in Australia, sure I would take it, I would gladly accept.

And I will give it all I have and, yeah, reaching 100 would be something truly very special for me." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIAN OPEN DEFENDING CHAMPION ROGER FEDERER SAYING ON PLAYING IN THE HOPMAN CUP: "I was seeking confirmation that my level of play was good in practice.

When I was in the off season I felt great didn't miss any sessions in the fitness or on the tennis court and when I went to Perth I was feeling good but you never know if it is going to translate into victories on the court.

I played great in singles and in mixed as well.

I am the mixed guy now, I haven't entered so I wouldn't be just the mixed guy." STORY: Double defending champion Roger Federer will start his bid for a hat-trick of Australian Open titles next week against unseeded Uzbek Denis Istomin, who caused a huge upset when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the second round two years ago.

The draw for the first Grand Slam of the season was made on Thursday and the top seeds could face some early tests of their title credentials when play gets underway on Monday.

The six-times Australian Open champion Federer, who beat Marin Cilic in last year's final, could meet the Croat in the quarter-finals, should the Swiss come through a potentially tricky fourth round against Greek prospect Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 37-year-old, seeded third, is bidding to extend his all-time leading men's Grand Slam record to 21 title and would capture a 100th ATP tournament win in the process.
