Thinking of making a team but don’t know where to start? Follow these three easy steps and you’ll be ready for Round 1 in no time.
 

Key players - choose four of the following:

Roger Federer
Grigor Dimitrov
David Goffin
Alexander Zverev
Juan Martin del Potro
Rafael Nadal
Simon Halep
Caroline Wozniacki
Garbine Muguruza
Elina Svitolina
Karolina Pliskova

FTL tip: While Roger Federer is the overwhelming favourite to win the Australian Open, you have to consider that he is likely to take weeks off in between Grand Slams. He is also very expensive, so if you do decide to select him you may have to compromise with some riskier players in other slots. On the women’s side you really can’t go wrong as there is talent across the board and they are all evenly priced.

Starters - choose four of the following:

Nick Kyrgios
Jo-Wilfred Tsonga
Gael Monfils
Pablo Carreno Busta
Tomas Berdych
Angelique Kerber
Maria Sharapova
Julia Goerges
Agnieszka Radwanska
Sloane Stephens

FTL tip: After dominating in 2016, Angelique Kerber was one of the highest priced players last year. This year she is significantly undervalued and, given her excellent early season form, a great value option. Nick Kyrgios’ win in Brisbane suggests he is also a great buy.

 

Bench - get plenty of these players:

Maximilian Marterer
Polona Hercog
Pablo Andujar
Alex De Minaur
Stefanos Tsitsipas
Ajla Tomljanovic
Belinda Bencic
Nicolas Jarry

FTL tip: Many of these players will be competing in Weeks 2 and 3, which is very important when your stars are resting. Belinda Bencic and Alex De Minaur are dramatically undervalued – pick them and don’t think twice!

One last time: get your teams selected and saved before Monday 15 January 2018 to ensure your squad can start picking up points at Australian Open 2018 - and keep an eye on Fantasy Tennis Insider on Twitter for all the best hints and tips throughout the season. Good luck!
