Australian Open 2019
In the world of Tennis, the Grand Slams are without a doubt the highlight of the international calendar. There are 4 Grand Slams that take place throughout the year, and these are the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Not only do these attract the biggest crowds, but also the most online betting action. In January 2019, the first and possibly the most important Grand Slam gets underway.
The Australian Open dates back all the way to 1905 when it was first played at the Warehouseman’s Cricket Ground in Melbourne. More than a century later, it has found a home base at Melbourne Park. Being the first Grand Slam of the year, the Australian Open is an important indicator of how players are faring for the upcoming season. After taking an end of the year break, fine-tuning their strokes and working on their court presence, players and teams showcase their skills for the world to see.
