Australian Open: About the event

Last updated on: Wednesday, 09 January 2013 15:23

Australian Open's prestige is not defined by the fact that it is the only Grand Slam event in the southern hemisphere. That it was first held in 1905 is also not the real proof of it's stature. What truly defines this tournament is the importance that premier tennis players have attached to it for more than a century - from Roy Emerson to Roger Federer.
