The Australian Open 2024 has just come to an end and the euphoria is still present among the tennis fans. It surely was a tournament that many fans will remember for many years to come. In this article, we will cover the most important things that you should know about the Australian Open 2024.

Australia Open 2024 Insights

As you may know, the Australian Open 2024 began on the 14th of January and ended on the 28th of January. It’s the first Grand Slam tournament of the season which sets the tone for the rest of the year.

The 2024 Australian Open was the 112th edition of this tournament, which makes it the 3rd oldest Grand Slam. Singles, doubles, and mixed doubles were all competing in this major tennis event. Junior and wheelchair players were also playing in singles and doubles at this Australian Open.

At the bookmakers, most bettors were backing Novak Djokovic to win the tournament. But everything changed when the super-talented Italian player Jannik Sinner knocked him out in the semi-finals.

Sinner also provided one of the best comebacks in tennis history during the Australian Open final. He was losing 0-2 in the set to Daniil Medvedev and ended up winning 3-2 to get his first-ever Grand Slam. It was surely one of the most entertaining Australian Open tournaments ever.

As for the women's singles, Aryna Sabalenka was the ultimate favourite to defend her title. In the end, it all went as the bookmakers predicted. The Russian tennis player managed to win her second consecutive Australian Open.

Australia Open Groups?

If you’re a tennis fan, you know that the format of the Australian Open doesn't feature any groups. Here, a draw decides which players will compete against each other. There are a total of 7 stages in this Grand Slam tournament, starting from the 1/64 finals up to the final.

Only the players that win at the featured stages can go through to the next phase. So, one loss will finish the tournament for the losing player.

Because of this tournament structure, bettors often choose to back certain players to progress. These betting types are among the most used by online bookmakers.

The 2024 Australian Open took place in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, just like the previous edition of the tournament. All tennis matches take place at Melbourne Park, but at different venues. In the table below, we'll reveal the venues that were in use for the Australian Open 2024.

What to Expect Next Year?

The 2024 Australian Open is still fresh in our memories, but we can still try to predict what to expect in 2025. Based on how the tournament ended, we believe that the Giants will enter the tournament with extra motivation.

This is especially true for Novak Djokovic, who features the most titles in men’s singles. Daniil Medvedev will also search for revenge after losing the final, despite winning the first two sets.

In the women’s category, the players will do their best to end Sabalenka's 2-year dominance in the tournament. On the other side, Aryna will try to keep up the good run and go after her 3rd title.

If you are willing to place bets on the 2025 Australian Open, then you should wait for some hefty bonus offers. They can help you win much bigger payouts if you're lucky enough.
