As the first Grand Slam® tournament of the year, the Australian Open holds a special place in the tennis calendar.
The world’s leading players and emerging talents gather in Melbourne ready to push the boundaries as they strive to make a successful start to the season.
Dominic Thiem proved his prowess on hard courts by finishing runner-up at the 2020 Australian Open before breaking through for his maiden Grand Slam® triumph at the US Open later that year. A winner of multiple ATP titles, he announced his arrival among the game’s elite by reaching the men’s singles final at Roland-Garros in 2018 and 2019.
Garbiñe Muguruza showed she is still a force in women’s tennis by making it to the 2020 Australian Open final. It was further reward in a fabulous career shaped by her parents’ decision to uproot the family from Venezuela to Spain when she was five years old to advance her tennis development. Their sacrifice has paid off handsomely with Grand Slam® singles titles at Roland-Garros in 2016 and at The Championships, Wimbledon, the following year when Muguruza also claimed the World No. 1 ranking.
With six Australian Open crowns to his name, Roger Federer has delighted the crowds at Melbourne Park. For more than two decades, his grace and elegance, on and off the court, combining skill and technical precision with a steely determination and unfailing sportsmanship have captivated audiences worldwide. The first player to win 20 men’s singles Grand Slam® titles, he has set the benchmark for future generations with his enduring excellence and unfailing sportsmanship.
