Ferrer comes into the Australian Open on a high after a brilliant week in Auckland, where he won a third title at the tournament he described as his 'favourite event in the world.' 

However Ferrer has reason to feel a little disappointed with his draw in Melbourne. He's landed arguably the toughest quarter as he's seeded to meet top seed Novak Djokovic in the last eight which puts a severe damper of his chances of repeating last year's semi-final.

He could also come up against the very dangerous Janko Tipsarevic in the fourth round but for now Ferrer will be focusing on Portuguese grinder Machado.

Machado broke through into the top 100 last year after many months of consistency on the challenger circuit and he's currently ranked 69 but he lacks experience at this level. He lost first round in Doha and Auckland and on his debut at the Australian Open last year, he exited at the first hurdle to Columbia's Santiago Giraldo.

All in all, it just doesn't bode well for Machado's chances of making this one competitive. Unfortunately for him, Ferrer has a similar game style but he just does it a lot better - he's faster, fitter and punches a lot harder. Look for the fifth seed to ease through this one with minimum of fuss.
