MELBOURNE Homme Air VaporMax Laceless Pure Platinum Blanche Solde , Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- Defending champions and world No. 1 ranked Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams top the Australian Open seedings lists, which follow rankings ahead of the first Grand Slam tournament of 2016.

Four-time finalist Andy Murray was seeded No. 2, 17-time major winner Roger Federer was No. 3 and 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka was No. 4, one higher than Rafael Nadal.

On the women's side, Simona Halep was No. 2, Garbine Muguruza was No. 3, Agieszka Radwanska was No. 4 and Maria Sharapova, the 2008 champion and finalist last year, was No. 5.

Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka moved back into the top 16 with her victory at the Brisbane International last week, her first title since 2013.

She finished last season at No. 22 but moved up the rankings with her title run in the Australian Open warmup tournament and was seeded No. 14 at Melbourne Park, meaning she avoids early-round encounters with the top-ranked players.

A win over 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori and a run to the semifinals at the Brisbane International lifted Australia's Bernard Tomic to a No. 16 seeding in the men's draw.

The Australian Open draw will take place on Friday.

Pictures of former North Korean leaders Kim Il-sung (left) and Kim Jong-il decorate the April 25 House of Culture, where the Workers' Party of Korea congress took place in Pyongyang on May 7. Global Times reporter Bai Yunyi reports at Kim Il-sung Square on May 10 as North Koreans cheer for the party congress.

During the seventh congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), more than 100 foreign journalists were invited to North Korea to cover the ruling party's first congress in 36 years. Global Times reporter Bai Yunyi was one of them. While her time there was strictly controlled, with her North Korean minders making sure she did not see or talk to anyone the government did not want her to, she was able to get a feeling for the mood in the isolated country - currently beset by wide-ranging UN sanctions due to its nuclear activities - during its most high-profile political event in years.

Like all foreign journalists invited to the country to cover its party congress, most of my time in the city of Pyongyang was spent on a coach provided by the North Korean authorities. There was no chance to walk the streets by ourselves.

However, what we saw made quite an impression on me. There were quite a few tall buildings in the capital with more than 20 stories, some even up to 40 stories.

We saw a few cars driving on the city's wide boulevards, including luxury brands such as Mercedes and Land Rover, though more were lower-priced Chinese models like BYD. A reporter who had been to North Korea multiple times told me that more vehicles are roaming the streets of the capital each time he visits Pyongyang.

The North Korean men I saw mainly wore monotone "people's dress" in grey, black or brown. But women seem to have greater choice. They wore trench coats, miniskirts, high-heeled shoes and even translucent thigh-high black stockings. Their dresses tended to be in bright colors and many wore makeup.

I was also surprised to see some people carrying smartphones, though North Koreans cannot connect to the Internet, only the country's intranet.

I also took a subway train which North Korean officials said was the country's first domestically-made subway train that came into use on January 1.

However, most of the clean city fell into darkness at night as a result of power shortages. Some residential buildings have no power to run their elevators or heat resident.
