Australian Open Tennis  UBET

Traditionally taking place annually over the last fortnight in January is the Australian Open, a major tennis tournament held at Melbourne Park. Formerly known as the Australasian Championships when it began in 1905, the event attracts the best tennis players to compete in men’s and women’s singles and doubles, as well as mixed doubles. Total prize money for the Oz Open is $33m.

The Australian Open is the first of the four Grand Slams of the year, with the French Open held in May-June, Wimbledon in June-July and the US Open in August-September. Players who travel down under to compete in the event tend to use some of the smaller ranked tournaments to prepare. These include the Brisbane International, the Sydney Open, the Kooyong Classic and the Hopman Cup. New Zealand also offers a lead up tournament for the women.

As you would expect with the Australian Open being a Grand Slam, some of the greatest players in the history of the sport have claimed this event. Aussie legend Rod Laver won three men’s singles titles between 1960 and 1969, and centre court, the arena where all major matches are held, is named in his honour. It’s been a long time between drinks for Aussie tennis fans, with the last male to win the event being Mark Edmonson in 1976, while the last female to claim victory was Christine O’Neil in 1978.

With the best of world tennis gracing our shores only once a year, the attendance in Melbourne is always high. For fans through the gate, the Aussie Open ranks second behind only to those who trek to Flushing Meadows for the US Open. The biggest crowd for the event came in 2012, when over 686,000 saw Victoria Azarenka and Novak Djokovic reign supreme.
