EVENT INFO

Melbourne

The weather is usually very warm during the Australian Open, with many matches being played in 35+ degree temperatures for 3+ sets! Melbourne is the perfect host city. It is frequently voted as one of the most liveable cities on the planet and is the epicentre of sport in Australia. It is a city famous for it’s shopping, art, restaurants, coffee and sporting culture. There is something for everyone with fantastic venues, parks, museums and other attractions such as the Eureka Sky Deck, the MCG and Melbourne Aquarium or the world class Melbourne Zoo. If shopping is more your style, head to Chapel Street, Chadstone Mall and the outlets in Collingwood and Richmond. Don’t forget the fabulous Queen Victoria Markets as well for the food lovers and bargain hunters, the food is always fresh and there is a fantastic atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else in Melbourne.

Ground Pass

A Grounds Pass is an ideal way to see the tennis at an affordable price. You can combine Grounds Passes with reserved seats in Rod Laver Arena to give you the best of both worlds. Our clients often choose Grounds Passes for day sessions and Reserved seats for night sessions. Use U-Select to obtain a price.

Quad: Use a 2 bedroom apartment and all have queen/queen or queen/two singles accommodating 4 guests.  On request we can ask for a rollaway bed at extra cost for the 4th or 5th guests but some have a 4 person maximum.  Some hotels  and one bedroom apartments have 2 queen beds for 2 couples or a queen and a sofa bed – check with us and be specific with what your needs are.

Taxis

River Cruises

Are available – please contact us for more information.

The Draw

The singles draw ceremony is held on Friday 11 January. Fields are made up as follows: Men’s singles 128 (104 direct entries based on rankings, 16 qualifiers, eight wildcards). Women’s singles 128 (108 direct entries, 12 qualifiers, eight wildcards). Men’s doubles 64 pairs, including seven wildcards. Women’s doubles 64 pairs, including seven wildcards. Mixed doubles 32 pairs, including seven wildcards.

Electronic review

Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, Margaret Court Arena and, for the first time, Show Courts 2 and 3 will utilise Hawk-Eye technology to conduct electronic reviews of disputed line calls. The Australian Open adopts the ‘three-plus-one’ electronic review system. Players will receive three incorrect challenges during each set and a fourth challenge if a set goes to a tiebreaker.

Ranking points

Players win twice as many points for a win in a Grand Slam match as they do for winning a match at the next level – ATP Tennis Masters Series and WTA Tour Tier Premier tournaments.

Extreme heat policy

The Australian Open Extreme Heat Policy (EHP) will be applied at the Referee’s discretion and may be altered at any time. At the Referee’s discretion, when the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature only (WBGT) is equal to or above the pre-determined threshold, the Referee may suspend the commencement of any further matches on outside courts. Any matches currently in progress will continue until the end of the current set. At the completion of the set, play will be suspended. Where play in any match commences outdoors (or with a roof open) at the Referee’s Discretion, the match will continue until the completion of the set. At the end of the set, a decision may be made by the Referee to close the roof for the remainder of the match and the following matches, when the EHP is still in effect. The roof will only be closed because of extreme heat if a decision has been made by the Referee to suspend the completion or commencement of matches on the outdoor courts. Supplement for women’s singles and junior singles only; to allow a 10 minute break between the second and third sets when a WBGT reading of 28 has been recorded prior to the calling of the match by Tournament Control. Readings are continually made throughout the day. The 10 minute break will not apply between the second and third sets, if play had previously been suspended after the first set due to the EHP.
