DID YOU KNOW? Australian Open fun facts

• The Australian Open is covered by more than 1,000 broadcasters worldwide reaching 45 TV channels and up to 900 million households on each day of the tournament.

• The longest tennis match happened during the Australian Open men’s final in 2012.

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, the two greatest men's players of the era, did battle on the court for an unbelieable five hours and 53 minutes – including an exhausting 31-shot rally - in what is considered the greatest tennis match of all time. The winner? It was Djokovic for his third straight Grand Slam title.

• Melbourne Park has three courts with retractable roofs. The special feature means that the Rod Laver Arena, the Hisense Arena and the Margaret Court Arena are immune to bad weather and play rarely falls behind schedule.

• Ken Rosewall is both the youngest and oldest man to win the Australian Open men’s championship. He won in 1953 at the age of 18 and took the title again 19 years later in 1972 at 37 years old.

• The Australian Open is the only Grand Slam to have taken place in different cities and countries. It was held in New Zealand in both 1906 and 1912, and later held in all five major Australian cities before Melbourne became its permanent home in 1972.


Margaret Court Arena (Australian Open 2017)

The Rod Laver arena, with retractable roof, guards against the sometimes-debilitating heat
and strong rain storms that accompany an Australian summer during the two-week long Open.
