Australian Open – Men’s Preview
In Australia, Djokovic’s dominance is nothing short of remarkable, boasting an 89-8 record in 18 appearances—an unparalleled feat that places him as the most triumphant man in the event’s history.
The 36-year-old Serbian maestro is set to chase after a historic 25th major trophy during the fortnight, fueled by his triumphs in three out of four majors in 2023. His ambitious goal includes clinching all four titles this year and adding Olympic gold at the upcoming Paris 2024 Games.
Notably, it was Carlos Alcaraz who delivered a stunning upset against Djokovic at Wimbledon in a gripping five-set thriller. Joining Djokovic as top-four seeds in the men’s draw are Jannik Sinner and 2021 US Open champion Daniil Medvedev. The field is stacked with talent, featuring Olympic champion Alexander Zverev, last year’s AO runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas, and the emerging star Holger Rune.
While formidable contenders abound, the Australian Alex De Minaur makes his mark by entering the top 10 for the first time this week, courtesy of a notable victory over Djokovic to kickstart the season.
Additionally, former world No.3 Grigor Dimitrov secured his first title in seven years in Brisbane, and US Open semi-finalist Ben Shelton aims to replicate the magic from last year’s AO, where he reached the quarter-finals in his tournament debut. The stage is set for a riveting Australian Open, brimming with both seasoned champions and rising stars.
Australian Open – Women’s Preview
In the aftermath of her fourth-round exit at the US Open, defending champion and current Women’s world No.1, Iga Swiatek, has been on a remarkable streak, boasting a 17-1 record. The Polish sensation clinched titles in Beijing and the WTA Finals to cap off 2023, leading Team Poland to the United Cup final last week alongside Hubert Hurkacz. Although they finished as runners-up to Germany, led by Zverev and the comeback queen, Angelique Kerber.
As the draw unfolds on Thursday (11th January), Swiatek faces strong competition from the likes of Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina, and the formidable Coco Gauff, who all secured their spots as top four seeds. A compelling mix of contenders, including Naomi Osaka, Kerber, and the 2018 winner Caroline Wozniacki, who returned to action last year, adds depth to the event.
The field also features Elina Svitolina, a woman on a mission since her comeback in April, reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals in July. Wimbledon champ Marketa Vondrousova, runner-up Ons Jabeur, and the determined American Jessica Pegula – eyeing her first-ever major semi-final – contribute to the star-studded lineup.
Keep an eye on potential dark horses, including the seasoned Azarenka, a two-time AO champion, and the rising Chinese star Zheng Qinwen, promising an unpredictable and captivating Australian Open.
