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.
