Djokovic, Azarenka top seeds for Aus Open



World No 1s Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka were named the top seeds on Monday for next week's Australian Open in Melbourne.

Djokovic, who beat Rafael Nadal in five sets in last year's final, will be bidding for his third successive Australian Open title at Melbourne Park.

Roger Federer, who has a record 17 grand slam titles in 24 finals, is the second seed ahead of US Open champion Andy Murray and Spain's David Ferrer.

Nadal will miss the year-opening grand slam as he is suffering from a stomach virus.

Defending women's singles champion Azarenka is seeded ahead of last year's finalist, Russian Maria Sharapova, five-time winner Serena Williams and Poland's Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska.
