Australian Open 2024 preview 

All eyes are once again on Novak Djokovic as the defending champion aims to win the Australian Open for the 11th time and take his Grand Slam tally to 25. The Serbian enjoyed a remarkable 2023 as he won three of the four Slam titles, claimed a record-breaking seventh ATP Finals title and became the first player in singles to reach 400 weeks as world number one. Wow.

Djokovic will rightfully start as the overwhelming favorite but several contenders will be hoping to dethrone the 36-year-old. Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz defeated the Serb in last year’s Wimbledon final, while Jannik Sinner ended 2023 in style by beating Djokovic for the first time as he helped Italy win the Davis Cup. Two-time finalist Daniil Medvedev will also be a threat, as will the powerful Alexander Zverev. However, long-time rival Rafa Nadal will not be in Melbourne after picking up an injury earlier this month.

When it comes to the women’s singles, defending champion Aryna Sabalenka will expect a serious challenge from a number of rivals. Top seed Iga Swiatek has never reached a final in Melbourne Park but has four Slams to her name, while last year’s beaten finalist Elena Rybakina is getting back to her best and is now up to number three in the world rankings. 

Aside from this trio, US Open champion Coco Gauff has started the year in excellent fashion with victory at the Auckland Classic, Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova is coming off the back of her best-ever year, while American Jessica Pegula and Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur will both feel like now is the time to win their first Grand Slam titles.

It should be a fascinating tournament so here’s all the details on how to watch Australian Open live streams wherever you are. We’ve also listed the full Australian Open schedule further down the page.
