Australian Open 2017

ss2017-01-11at06-41-31

While Europe is dealing with a tough winter, Australia enjoys a beautiful summer. And that makes it the appropriate country for a tennis tournament during the second half of January. This has been the case since 1972 and the Australian Open hosted in Melbourne.

The matches of the first round of the 2017 Tournament will open the ball on 16th January with the final scheduled for the 29th at the Melbourne Park. Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber will be defending their titles in the men’s and women’s singles respectively, in all likelihood against Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and del Potro for the former and Serena Williams for the latter.

The tournament has sessions for singles, doubles, mixed doubles, legends, boys and girls with the winners receiving apart from the prestige and the points for the ranking system, substantial prize money:
