It’s that time of the season when we get to see one of the biggest tennis tournaments – Australian Open 2018. Top tennis stars including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Serena Williams will be battling it out to win the ultimate prize. People living in Victoria (Australia) will most probably be joining these stars on the tennis court. And those at home will be glued to their television screens or online streaming the Australian Open live on their devices.
The Australian Open will kick off on Monday, January 16 and conclude on Sunday, 29 January. The whole tournament will be taking place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria.
The event will be having day sessions from 10:30am to 6:00pm (AEDT) and night sessions from 6pm till midnight. Since it’s a grand slam, it’s uncertain how much time will each game run for.
