Unibet AU Australian Open
The Australian Open has the honour of opening tennis’ Grand Slam calendar. It is one of four major events on the men’s and women’s tours and, naturally, all the best players are aiming to be fit and firing ahead of the first serve. This is also one of the first major tournaments of the new sporting year so there is more than one reason why the Australian Open attracts so much interest.

Unforgettable Moments from over 100 years
The very first Australian Open was held back in 1905 and the 2020 edition was the 108th running of the event. The tournament was switched to Melbourne in 1972 and has been hosted by Melbourne Park since 1988.
Novak Djokovic claimed his eighth men’s Australian Open singles title in 2020 and the Serb is the most successful men’s player in the history of the tournament. Moving into future years, Djokovic will be looking to remain competitive but he will face renewed battles with rivals Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka. Perhaps Australia’s very own Nick Kyrgios can break into this bunch and give the home crowd their first men’s title since Mark Edmondson way back in 1976.
In the women’s singles section, Australia does hold the record thanks to Margaret Court who won ten titles from the Amateur through to the Open era. The great Serena Williams will remain hopeful of matching Court’s record but, with seven wins to her name to date, time may be running out for the successful Williams sister.
When tennis fans are asked their opinion on the greatest Australian Open match of all time, many will point to the final of the 2012 men’s singles competition. Once again. Novak Djokovic was involved as he took on Rafael Nadal in another five set thriller. Djokovic edged home 7-5 in the final set and the dramatic marathon, lasting five hours and 53 minutes, was the longest Grand Slam final in the sport’s history.
That record may not be matched but we can be certain that more thrilling tennis will follow. To get the best from the Australian Open, check out Unibet’s sportsbook for an extensive set of markets and keep it tuned to Unibet TV to catch all the best action.
