The 2013 Australian Open tennis championships are the first of only four Grand Slam tournaments held each year. The Australian Open has been held in Melbourne, Victoria since 1972 and at its current location since 1988 when it became the first Grand Slam tournament to have a retractable roof. The Australian Open is also known as “The Aussie Open” or as you can see on the official logo above, “The Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific”.

I encourage you to “Follow” the Australian Open on Twitter like I do, the official handle is @AustralianOpen and the official 2013 hashtag is #AusOpen. Please “Like” the official Australian Open Facebook page just as I do by pasting http://www.facebook.com/AustralianOpen into your address bar then click “Like” once you are there.

This tournament is one of the “BIG 14″ MAJOR prestigious events for both the men and the women. The 2013 Australian Open runs from the first day of qualifying on Wednesday 9 January through to Men’s Singles Final day on Sunday 27 January.

The 2012 women’s singles champion was Victoria AZARENKA who defeated Maria SHARAPOVA in the final 6-3, 6-0 to win 2,000 WTA ranking points. The 2012 singles champion was Novak DJOKOVIC who defeated Rafael NADAL in the final 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5 to win 2,000 ATP ranking points.

The 2013 Australian Open is held at Melbourne Park in Richmond, Victoria on “True Blue” Plexicushion Prestige medium paced hard courts. The centre court was named the Rod Laver Arena in the year 2000 to honour the twice winner of THE Grand Slam (in 1962 and in 1969). Rod Laver Arena has a 14,820 seating capacity and this tournament was first held in 1905.
