    CANBERRA Orioles Chris Davis Jersey , Jan. 12 (Xinhua) --Former world number one Novak Djokovic faces a brutal challenge if he is to win the Australian Open in his comeback to tennis.


    Djokovic, 30, enters the 2018 Australian Open as the 14th seed, the first time he has been ranked outside the top 10 at the year's first Grand Slam in a decade, after missing much of 2017 with an elbow injury.


    His hopes for a triumphant return at Melbourne Park were dealt a blow at the Australian Open draw on Thursday night with the Serbian set to face former top-10 player Gael Monfils in the second round before running into fourth seed Aleander Zverev and 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka.


    Even if the six-time Australian Open champion should clear all those hurdles he could encounter 2017 champion Roger Federer in the semifinals.


    Federer, who turned back the clock to win two Grand Slams in 2017 after a five-year drought Orioles Manny Machado Jersey , on Thursday night described the season as "unbelievable."


    "I don't usually like going to draws, I just want to see the sheet. But what a pleasure to be here on Margaret Court Arena. Last year was an amazing final and it's great to be back," he said.


    A string of local hopes were also dealt difficult draws; 17-year-old Destanee Aiava will face world number one Simona Halep while fellow teenager Alex De Minaur, who has made the semi-finals at both the Brisbane and Sydney Internationals, will play Tomas Berdych.


    Berdych, the 17th seed Orioles Adam Jones Jersey , has never lost to an Australian at a Grand Slam in seven matches.


    "He's a very talented player. Has a very high level. I'm just going to go out there, try to weather the storm, and try to play my game," De Minaur said.


    Seeded women in the tournament were lucky to avoid the threat of Maria Sharapova who is ranked 47th in the world after serving a doping suspension in 2017.


    China's Zhang Shuai was not as lucky, drawing 2017 US Open Champ Sloane Stephens as she attempts to recreate the success of 2016 when she made the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.


    Peng Shuai, China's highest ranked tennis player Orioles Jonathan Schoop Jersey , was drawn against a qualifier.

    The days of Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) limiting messages to 140 characters, a signature of the social network since its launch in 2006, may be numbered.


    Twitter said on Tuesday that it would begin a test with a random sample of users allowing them to send tweets that are as long as 280 characters, double the existing cap Womens Zach Britton Jersey , in most languages around the world.


    The San Francisco-based company has stood by its short messages as a defining characteristic - like chirps from a bird, which is the company logo - even as users found ways around the limit, such as posting photos of text.


    In a blog post on Tuesday, Twitter said its emphasis on brevity would never change but that it had been wondering whether people could express themselves easily enough, hurting the service’s popularity.


    “Trying to cram your thoughts into a Tweet - we’ve all been there, and it’s a pain Womens Mark Trumbo Jersey ,” Twitter project manager Aliza Rosen and senior software engineer Ikuhiro Ihara said in the post.


    The employees acknowledged some users may have an “emotional attachment” to the current limit.


    News reports in January 2016 said that Twitter was running internal tests for longer tweets and considering a limit as high as 10,000 characters.


    Though Twitter is ubiquitous in media because of frequent use by U.S. President Donald Trump and many celebrities, the company has struggled financially. For the second quarter, it reported a loss of $116 million and zero growth in the number of users, at 328 million people. Facebook Inc (FB.O) has 2 billion users.


    A higher charac.
