Russians confirmed for Australian Open

A host of stars have been cleared to compete - in contrast to the ban imposed at Wimbledon
Russian players have been included on the entry list for the 2023 Australian Open, confirming their right to participate at the tournament in Melbourne in January.
Daniil Medvedev, twice a beaten finalist at the event, leads the way among Russian male players on the list unveiled by organizers on Thursday.
Currently ranked world number seven, Medvedev finds himself one spot above compatriot Andrey Rublev.
Lower down the list, Russia's Karen Khachanov - a semifinalist at the US Open in September - enters the draw as world number 20.
In the women's entry list, Russian pair Daria Kasatkina and Veronika Kudermetova both head to Australia inside the world's top 10.
Returning to action will be former Russian women's number one Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who was forced to miss much of the 2022 season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.
Pavlyuchenkova, 31, is a three-time quarterfinalist in Melbourne.
