What to know ahead of the 2023 Australian Open

Not only is it the first Grand Slam of tennis’ season, but the tournament ‘down under’ is also one of the fan favorites. In 2022′s edition, the show was completely stolen by Ashleigh Barty who became the first Australian woman to win the Australian open in 44 years. A national hero to say the least. On the men’s side, it was one of the usual suspects who lifted the trophy once again in the form of Spain’s Rafael Nadal. The record title holder added his 21st Grand Slam singles title to an already stacked trophy cabinet, after a hard-fought win against Russia’s Daniil Medvedev.

Yet, the truly big news is the return of former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. The Serb is back in Australia, about a year after being deported and banned from entering due to his refusal of the covid-19 vaccine. Australia, as was the case with many countries worldwide, instituted a vaccine mandate during the global pandemic. Suffice to say the Djokovic’s return has definitely turned some heads. Despite his undoubted pedigree, he will actually enter the tournament at No. 4. Other famous faces include the likes of Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas, while on the women’s side we’ve got stars such as top seeds Iga Świątek, Ons Jabeur and Jessica Pegula.

The 2023 Australian Open is offering a pretty penny

Without doubt, the Australian Open is one of the most prestigious and entertaining tournaments on the calendar and so it’s only fitting that the purse reflects that fact. This year will actually see a 3.38% increase in the prize money on offer, which takes it to a historically high prize pool of $76.5 million. In case you’re wondering, both singles champions - men and women - will take home $2.975 million. Not a bad payday if you ask us.
