Is It Legal and Safe?

There are many websites out there which simply stream footage from TV station and/or subscription services. These are illegal and often can be dangerous for your computer and security as they install Trojans, worms, viruses and other nasty’s on your computer, phone or tablet.

Don’t worry though; all of the feeds we feature are 100% safe and 100% legal.

Our live streaming partners have the rights to show all of the action from the Australian Open in the hope that if you watch the action you place a bet and whilst that does add some excitement to the action, it is not a must.

First Major

As the first major tournament of the year the Australian Open gives a great insight into how the following year will go for many players. With the off season in Tennis getting smaller and smaller, managing the calendar is a major part of any tennis player’s arsenal nowadays so the Australian Open is a great way of seeing who has handled the off season the best.

With only limited tournaments in the run up to the Aus Open, it also exposes players that are not in full fitness or those who are carrying minor injuries more than potentially any other event.

There is no time to play your way into form and you haven’t been playing constantly in the weeks leading up to the event.

That gives a different dynamic for the players, some can handle it whilst others falter. This leads to the Australian Open tennis tournament being among the most unpredictable on the tennis calendar.

Difficult To Watch Live

Unfortunately despite the star names on offer, the fact that it is a major tennis tournament and also the fact it is one of the popular tennis events on the calendar in Europe despite the often unsocial start times of matches- it can be difficult to watch matches live from Melbourne.

If your favourite player or the match you are interested in watching isn’t on one of the main show courts it can be almost impossible to watch the action live, even with a subscription to a pay TV channel but if you would like to watch the action no matter which court the match is on or what time of the day the match starts, you are in the right place.

Here at SportsStream.co.uk we bring you a choice of fantastic live streaming websites that allow you to pick and choose the match you would like to watch the Australian Open with each and every match available to watch.

What To Watch From Melbourne

As with all of the 4 Grand Slams in Tennis, the Australian Open features both the very best and the unknown from the both the Men’s ATP Tour and the women’s WTA Tour.

The Aus Open features some of the largest attendances on the tennis calendar with Melbourne and New York (US Open) battling for the highest aggregate attendance for a tournament. The position of Melbourne Park near the centre of Melbourne and the fact that it offers 3 indoor courts makes it popular with both local and visiting fans.

Although rain isn’t too much of an issue normally in the middle of the Victorian summer, the heat can be but with the Rod Laver Arena, the Hisense Arena and the Margaret Court Arena all offering indoor tennis, the weather simply doesn’t matter. This also allows the Australian Open to feature late night matches which are great for fans in Europe.

These night matches often feature the biggest names from both tours and have an electric atmosphere that is almost unique in the world of tennis and this can combine to create some of the most memorable action of the season.

Big Money, Big Players

As you would expect from one of the 4 Grand Slam tennis tournaments on the calendar the Australian Open offers one of the largest prize funds on both the men’s and women’s tour. The winner of the men’s side of the tournament not only picks up a huge check but he also is presented with the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup. The winner of the women’s side of the draw is presented with the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup.

Not Just Singles Action

Alongside the men’s and women’s singles events there are also men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles events.

Aus Open History

As one of the biggest tournaments on the calendar, it will come as no surprise to even the most casual fan of the sport that this is one of the most historic and prestigious tournaments in the world.

Nowadays the tournament is a global one, with stars heading to Melbourne at the start of the season from across the globe but it hasn’t always been that way as up until the open era, the tournament mostly attracted local players from across Australia and New Zealand.

Early Days

Originally the event was hosted by the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia (LTAA) at the Warehouseman’s Cricket Ground in Melbourne with the first event taking place in November 1905.

Know known as the Albert Reserve Tennis Centre, the action back then took place on grass courts at the then known as Australasian Championships.

It changed name to the Australian Championships in 1927 before becoming known as the Australian Open in 1969, when the open era of professionalism came about.

Nomadic Era

Although the event started in the Victorian capital city of Melbourne and it is there that it has made its name, the tournament has actually taken place in a number of cities across the country including Sydney (on 17 occasions), Adelaide (on 14 occasions), Brisbane (on 7 occasions) and Perth (on 3 occasions).

The Australian Open has actually taken place across the Tasman Sea in New Zealand on 2 occasions with Christchurch hosting the 1906 edition and Hastings hosting the 1912 edition.

Despite starting life in 1905, it took until 1924 for the event to be designated as a Major Championship by the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF) and after missing quite a few years during the next 20-30 years due to the 2 World Wars, the event really started to establish itself from the 1950’s to the 1970’s but it soon became clear that Melbourne was capable of hosting and attracting the biggest crowds, so in 1972 the decision was made to move the event to Melbourne on a full time basis and end the nomadic nature the tournament had.

Establishing A Melbourne Home

The first venue to host the event from 72 to 88 was the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club but it proved to be too small a venue quite quickly and the decision was made to developed a new complex in the then named Flinders Park, which is now known as Melbourne Park and that is of course the home of the tournament to this very day.

Aus Open, The Early Years

As you would likely expect, the early years of the event was dominated by Australian players as the trip from Europe would take around 45-50 days by ship back then and that left only local players to compete.

The first ever final took place between 2 local favourites with Rodney Heath picking up the first title.

The next year, when the event was played in New Zealand, it was an all local final once again with Anthony Wilding of New Zealand becoming the first non Aussie to win the title.

In 1908, Fred Alexander of the United States became the first non-Oceanic winner, with Rodney Heath becoming the first player to win the title twice in 1910.

British Success

The 1912 edition of the event saw an all British final when James Cecil Parke defeated Alfred Beamish to become the first British winner and the first European winner of the title in Australia, with Brits also winning in 1915 and 1919.

World Success

The first continental European victor the event was Jean Borotra of France, whilst the first South American winner of the tournament came in 1978, when Guillermo Vilas of Argentina won the title.

Open Era

After the Open era saw players from across the globe start to play more at the event, it was quickly players from the US who started to dominate with the likes of Jimmy Connors, Arthur Ashe, Roscoe Tanner, Vitas Gerulaitis and Brian Teacher all winning between 1970 and 1980.

The first African winner was Johan Kriek, who when representing South Africa defeated Steve Denton to win the title but interestingly, it was the same line up in the next season’s final and the same outcome but for the 1982 edition, Kriek was representing the USA.

Between 1983-1988 all 5 finals were shared between the Swedish pair of Mats Wilander and Stefan Edberg.

1990’s+

In the 1990’s it was once again players from the US who dominated things before the big 4 of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray dominated the event from the mid-2000’s to the early 2020’s.

In 2021, Novak Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev to win his third straight title (for the second time) and to become the winningest champion in Australia.

Medvedev had a quick chance to redeem that loss as the Russian rising star also reached the final of the 2022 edition of the event but he one again came up short in a 5 set thriller against Rafa Nadal.

The event was other shadowed for much of it due to the embarrassing behaviour of Novak Djokovic, who entered the country illegally to compete before been thrown out, but thankfully, the final put the attention back on the players committed to playing and to the great action on show.

Despite having a frosty reception and organisers having to ban people who booed the Serbian, it was Djokovic who went on to win the 2023 edition of the tournament although his behaviour was once again well below that of a champion as he and his father showed their support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Women

On the women’s side of the event, it was also dominated by local players during the early years with the first edition of the women’s; championship taking place in 1922, with the title been picked up by Margaret Moleswort, who defeated Esna Boyd in the first 2 finals.

Interestingly, Boyd would go onto lose the first 5 finals straight and 6 of the first 7 but thankfully for her, the one year she didn’t finish runner up, she won the title.

Early British Success

The first non-Australian winner was Dorothy Round of Great Britain who defeated fellow Brit Nancy Lyle in the 1935 final, with the first US winner coming in 1938, when Dorothy Cheney won the title.

US Takeover

Unlike on the men’s side of the draw, local players continued to dominate during the open era with Margaret Smith/Court dominating the 1960’s before Evonne Goolagong dominated the 1970’s but by the 1980’s it was US stars who started to dominate with the likes of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert enjoying success.

European Success

The 1990’s saw the emergence of European stars dominate things with Monica Seles, Martini Hingis and Steffi Graf enjoying the most success before US stars dominated the 2000’s.

Global Success

The 2010’s saw players from across the globe pick up wins including Li Na of China becoming the first Asian winner of the event in 2014, whilst Naomi Osaka become the first Asian star to win 2 titles after picking up the title in both 2019 and 2021.

In 2022, there was lots for home fans to celebrate as not only did the Australian duo of Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis win the men’s double event but it was Ashleigh Barty from Queensland who won the Australian Open women event.

In the 2023 women’s singles final, it was Belarussian star Aryna Sabalenka who won the final, against Elena Rybakina, with the winner playing under a neutral flag.
