Welcome to the LOADED quarter of the men’s draw Take a look at the seeds placed in this eighth— Alexander Zverev (4) Dominic Thiem (5) Stan Wawrinka (9) Novak Djokovic (14) Roberto Bautista Agut (20) Albert Ramos-Vinolas (21) Adrian Mannarino (26) and Mischa Zverev (32) In the top half of this quarter Thiem and Wawrinka are projected fourth-round opponents However Thiem has had a torrid time on court in the last six months and seems to be extremely low on confidence He did reach the semis of Doha in the first tournament of 2018 only to lose to Gael Monfils Wawrinka on the other hand hasn’t played a match since Wimbledon 2017 because of an injured knee He only decided at the last moment to participate and might not last too long at the tournament This could open the door for Bautista Agut— who lifted the trophy at Auckland this week— to make the last-eight of a Major for the first time but he will have to get past former semi-finalist Fernando Verdasco in a tricky first round In the bottom half six-time champion Djokovic has been handed a tough path on his return to tennis after a six-month hiatus The Serb starts against American Donald Young but could face an early test against Monfils— who won at Doha at the start of 2018— in round two Novak Djokovic has remodelled his serve to protect his elbow and is going for a record seventh Australian Open title AP Djokovic might face a Zverev in the last-16 but only if both the Zverev brothers get through their opening two rounds to set up a sibling derby in the third Elder brother Mischa first faces Hyeon Chung the winner of the inaugural ATP Next Gen Finals He will face another Next Gen member in the next round— the winner of Danill Medvedev (recent winner at Sydney) and Thanasi Kokkinakkis (21-year-old Aussie on the comeback trail) Fourth-seeded Alexander has a relatively simpler route to a potential clash with his brother The major deciding factor for this quarter is the state of Djokovic’s elbow If his new abbreviated serve can help him survive the first week he might have a shot at fighting for a record seventh Australian Open title Predicted semi-finalist:Novak Djokovic First round to watch out for: Thanasi Kokkinakkis vs Daniil Medvedev Medvedev has a 2-0 advantage but Kokkinakkis will have the crowd on his side Bottom quarter?

on Peoplecom Contact us at editors@timecomIDEAS David Westin was the president of ABC News from 1997-2010 Heres a dirty little secret about the news: people love stories about others misfortunes Our fellow citizens in California love to watch the snowstorms in the east; those of us in the east dont mind seeing the brushfires and mudslides of our western brethren And all of us join together to watch the devastation of a tsunami half way around the globe Whatever problems we might have at least we dont have those problems So its hardly surprising that the recent travails of Brian Williams and NBC News are so popular in the press The media always love stories about the media and if the media get to cover the failings of their competitors so much the better After all its happening to them (in this case Williams and NBC News) and not to us What could be better The problem is that what were all watching now is about us as much as its about them Its about "us" in TV news for that matter all the news media And even more troubling its about "us" in the audience as were drawn so powerfully to the growing celebrity status of journalists Lets start with a surprising revelation: People sometimes make mistakesfoolish embarrassing mistakes that looking back seem unimaginable Reporters do it; politicians do it; even our best friends do it If were honest each and every one of us has embarrassed ourselves in ways that now seem preposterous Or if we havent we will But this isnt as simple as one famous successful charming news anchor setting off on his own to embellish his war record Whatever Brian Williams did or didnt do wherever he ends up weve been with him each and every step of the way Think back to what was happening when Williams made his visit to Iraq In and of itself sending a well-known reporter to cover a war is not unusual Experienced correspondents and anchors are good at their jobs and often their prominence can get them interviews and access others couldnt get At ABC News where I was president we sent Ted Koppel as part of our team to cover the war in early 2003 But Williams was more than a well-known reporter or anchor He was the heir apparent to Tom Brokaw as anchor of Nightly News only two months away from the official announcement he would be taking over NBC News was grooming him for the position but was also mounting an impressive marketing campaign to establish him as the worthy successor What better way to do that than to send him into the midst of the Iraq war to march triumphantly into Baghdad with "our" US troops I know I was watching it all and admiring how good they were at positioning Williams for the inevitable promotion It wasnt only NBC News that was increasingly flexing its marketing muscle at the time Roger Ailes had taught us all a new level of branding with Fox News passing CNN and leaving MSNBC far behind by the time of 9/11 All of us were losing viewers to the cable news channels and there was enormous pressure to stem the erosion Things have only gotten worse since the spring of 2003 The competition is fiercer the financial pressures are greater and as digital media has come into its ownand particularly social media and streaming video on mobiletheres more marketing and publicity and branding in news than ever before Inevitably the temptation is to make that marketing and publicity and branding be about the people covering the news rather than about the news itself See Brian Williams Through The Years Brian Williams was the Editorial Editor for his school newspaper

in combat with Terpak during the Iraq war On Feb 10 he was suspended without pay for six months James Devaney—GC Images 1 of 10 Advertisement In that environment there wasnt much incentive for people around Williams to be reining him in Just as theres no real incentive to rein in other anchors or reporters making themselves the center of the stories they cover It doesnt have to be this way I worked for years with Peter Jennings who established himself over an entire career as a reporter covering the Middle East and conflicts around the globe As someone with experience he never felt the need to make himself the center of the storyto establish his courage or willingness to take risks He always urged all of us who worked with him to remember that our job was to cover the story not to become the story We took Peters attitude to heart Six months after Peter died our own Bob Woodruff and his cameraman Doug Vogt were seriously injured by an IED on an Iraq road outside Taji Iraq in January of 2006 No one needed to embellish what had happened Both had shrapnel injuries to their brains Bob remained in a coma for 36 days Miraculously he came out of itmiraculous because none of us beginning with his devoted wife Lee knew whether he would ever wake Or if he did what kind of life he would have But through strength of character and the support of his family and friends and great good luck Bob came back When he did we agreed that we should do a documentary on what hed experienced But from the first meeting I had with Bob about that documentary we both agreed that it shouldntcouldntbe about just Bob Bob told his story in that documentary but his story was a minor portion of the hour we produced; most of the hour was given to the men and women whod suffered injuries similar to Bobs (and worse) and to the families who sustained them This wasnt about Bob the war hero This was about Bob the witness Bob the reporter No one knows no one can know where the Brian Williams story will lead NBC News is conducting an investigation into the facts The story may turn out to be even worse than what we know now; the story may turn out to be not as bad as it looks But before we jump too quickly on the gloating bandwagon lets consider what role we all may have played in the drama were all watching unfold If we really want to encourage reform lets seek out those who cover the news and dont put themselves at the center of it Lets reward them with our time and attention I know Brian Williams He is a good newsman and a good man Like so many of our anchors and reporters today he simply needs to know that we value him for his reporting not for his "making" the news Or of course we can all just enjoy watching others misfortunes Read next: Operation Anchor
