Not only is tennis a fast-paced, nail-biting game, it’s also one of profiles, politics and style – thus there’s reason enough to tune in this month.
But as anyone who watched last year’s Women’s World Cup will know, spectating becomes even better when you’ve got skin in the game.
So who is there to look out for this year? With notable names such as Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios still out due to injury, and national treasures Ash Barty and Sam Stosur now retired, who are we set to see taking the courts this month?
2023 champions Novak Djokovic and Aryna Sabalenka will return, alongside fan favourites Naomi Osaka, Stefanos Tsitsipas and our very own Alex de Minaur. But that’s only scraping the surface.
So, if you need a bit of brushing up on the best and brightest stars to keep an eye on during the Australian Open this January, then this wrap-up is for you.
