Australian Open History and Previous Winners


The Australian Open championship is one of the oldest events in tennis, being first played in 1905 at the Warehouseman’s Cricket Ground. Since then the tournament has had numerous names and has been played and hosted at all the major cities of Australia throughout its 110 editions. Originally called the Australasian Championships, the modern-day Grand Slam was not established with the intent of creating a world-stage event until 1924. For many many years it was played on a grass court, the most dominant court surface type from the Ametuer Era but from 1988 onwards, it has been played on hard courts. Even the format of the event has seen some changes.


For the past 16 years, the Big Three have been dominating at the Grand Slam with Novak Djokovic clinching the most victories. His record 10 titles are actually an all-time record and he also holds the record for most consecutive wins at 3, a feat he has accomplished twice. But besides the Big Three, the event has hosted some of the best and most well-known tennis players from the past like Ken Rosewall, Roy Emerson, Jack Crawford, Rod Laver, Guillermo Vilas, and many others.
