When does Australian Open 2023 begin?
Australian Open 2023 is all set to commence on January 16. The tournament will culminate on January 29. While the Men’s Singles Final is scheduled on January 29, the women’s singles final is slated to be played on January 28,
Rafael Nadal will look to defend his men’s singles crown at the Australian Open 2023. He will, however, be rivalled by Novak Djokovic who missed out last year owing to his unvaccinated status against COVID-19. The women’s singles was won by local Ashleigh Barty. However, the tournament will see a different champion as Barty announced her shocking retirement from the sport earlier in 2022.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, Casper Ruud, Carlos Alcaraz along with Ons Jabeur and Iga Swiątek are some of the other big names that will play in this competition.
Who are the 2023 Australian Open defending champions?
Rafael Nadal will be the defending men’s champion after beating Daniil Medvedev in a thrilling 2022 final. Nadal came back from two sets down to stun Medvedev and lift a 21st Grand Slam title.
Ashleigh Barty became the first Australian champion in 44 years in 2022, but she will not be back this time as she has retired from tennis.
World No. 1 Iga Swiatek made the semi-finals in 2022 and will be hoping to go one better in January as the pre-tournament favourite.
