“I enjoyed playing the format in Melbourne this year and think it’s very exciting for both players and fans. It’s easy for the crowd to get involved in every point which makes for a great atmosphere.
“I haven’t played in Sydney for a long time but I know it’s an amazing city and Australian tennis fans are some of the best in the world so I’m excited to come back.”
