When is the 2020 Australian Open Tennis?


The 2020 Australian Open begins on Monday 20 January and concludes with the men's singles final on Sunday 2 February 2020.

Where is the 2020 Australian Open Tennis?


The 2020 Australian Open will be played at Melbourne Park which has hosted the tournament since 1988. The three primary courts being at Melbourne Park are the Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Arena and the Margaret Court Arena. 

These courts are equipped with retractable roofs, with the Australian Open being the first Grand Slam tournament to feature indoor play during difficult weather conditions.

What surface is the 2020 Australian Open Tennis played on?


The 2020 Australian Open is played on blue hard courts known as Plexicushion Prestige. The Australian Open was originally played on grass until 1988 when it switched to green coloured hard courts called Rebound Ace.

In 2008 the Rebound Ace surface was replaced by a cushioned, medium-paced, acrylic surface known as Plexicushion Prestige. The Plexicushion Prestige surface offers players a consistent and cooler surface which is important in the Australian summer heat.

2020 Australian Open Tennis Final


The 2020 Australian Open men's singles final is the showpiece of the tournament and will be held on Sunday 2 February 2020. The 2019 Australian Open men's singles final saw Novak Djokovic won a record seventh Australian Open title after defeating Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

It was Djokovic's 15th Grand Slam title and he surpassed Pete Sampras for third place on the all-time list behind Federer and Nadal. 

Australian Open Tennis History 


The Australian Open was first played in 1905 at the Warehouseman's Cricket Ground in Melbourne, a facility now known as the Albert Reserve Tennis Centre. Before 1905 all Australian states and New Zealand had their own championships, the first being organised in Melbourne in 1880 which was called the Championship of the Colony of Victoria.

The tournament was originally known as the Australasian Championships and not chosen as a major championship until 1924. The Australasian Championships became the Australian Championships in 1927 and the Australian Open in 1969. 

Australian players dominated the tournament in the early years, foreign players few and far between due to the distance required to travel from the United States and Europe, the timing of the tournament around Christmas and the New Year’s Day and the low prize money. In 1969 the Australian Open was open to all players including professionals who were not allowed to play the traditional circuit.

There was a financial dispute in 1970 which saw Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall, Andrés Gimeno, Pancho Gonzales, Roy Emerson and Fred Stolle prevented from entering the Australian Open. More players from around the world started to compete in the Australian Open in the 1970s which signalled the end of Australian players regularly winning the tournament.

The Australian Open has been staged in five Australian and two New Zealand cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Christchurch and Hastings before permanently moving to Melbourne in 1972 because it attracted the most spectators.

The Australian Open was contested at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club in Melbourne from 1972. Following the 1983 Australian Open, the International Tennis Federation urged the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia to move the tournament because Kooyong was too small to host such a big event.

The 1983 Australian Open attracted high profile tennis players Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe and Mats Wilander competed with Wilander winning the singles title. The Australian Open moved to the Melbourne Park complex in 1988 which saw the court surface change from grass to hard courts known as Rebound Ace.

Formerly known as Flinders Park, Melbourne Park was designed to meet the demands of an increasingly popular tournament that had outgrown the limited capacity at Kooyong. The move to Melbourne Park proved to be a success, 266,436 spectators attending the Australian Open in 1988 which was a 90% increase on the 140,000 spectators that attended the 1987 Australian Open at Kooyong.

The Melbourne Park complex was upgraded over a number of years which provided improved facilities for players and spectators. A retractable roof was built over Margaret Court Arena, making the Australian Open the first Grand Slam to have retractable roofs on three show courts.

In December 2018, the Australian Open would followed Wimbledon and the US Open by introducing tie-breaks in the final sets of men's and women's singles matches. Wimbledon and the US Open had tie-breaks at 12-12 and 6-6 in the fifth set respectively, the Australian Open decided to use a first to 10 points tie-breaker at 6-6 in the fifth set.

What is the 2020 Australian Open Tennis Prize Money?


The 2020 Australian Open prize money is yet to be announced but is likely to increase on the AUD $62,500,000 on offer in 2019. There was a 10% increase in prize money for the 2019 Australian Open  from the AUD $55,000,000 on offer in 2018.
