Did You Know?

This mega tennis event dates back, way back to the late 20th century and was first introduced in 1905. Australian Open did not have its original name until 1969 and was formerly known as Australian Championship. Earlier the game was played across several cities in Australia but from 1987 onwards it was played in Melbourne. The Australian Open is indeed one such mega tennis event that has been played in different countries with 1906 and 1912 tournaments were played in New Zealand. The first match was played at Warehouseman’s Cricket Ground. Due to its distant geographical location, Australian Open did not have foreign players until the year 1946 when several US players came to Australia by plane. Some of the recognised players who became popular from this event include Rod Laver, Margaret Smith and Roy Emerson.
