Men’s Singles

With Novak Djokovic most certainly ruled out of play, the fight for the first grand slam of the year is suddenly wide open. Russian Daniil Medvedev, current no. 2 in the world, should have a good chance of going far considering his performance in last year’s tournament where he went all the way to the final and fell against Djokovic (7-5, 6-2, 6-2). Medvedev was recently representing Russia in the ATP Cup held in Australia where he was playing a key role in leading Russia to an honorable semifinal loss against Canada. Daniil Medvedev kept his game at a high level throughout the whole tournament and managed to win all his single matches except one.

Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas are two other players who will be in the contention for the year’s first big trophy. Both players have the ability to go far in the tournament and showed in last year’s edition that a final spot is within reach. With Djokovic sitting this Grand Slam out we should expect a highly interesting tournament with a less predictable outcome. It will all come down to who is having the right day and can find the right momentum. The qualification rounds are to begin on January 10 and run through January 14 after which the main draw will take place.

Women’s Singles

The women’s singles tournament has every possibility of being something extra to keep an eye on. With almost every top ranked player featuring in this year’s tournament we can expect a thrilling tournament where the current no. 1 seeded, Ashleigh Barty, will be the player to beat. The Australian has somewhat surprisingly never managed to lift the Australian Open trophy in front of her home fans, though a semifinal loss in 2020 is the closest she has come.

Last year’s winner and the current ranked no. 13, Naomi Osaka, is coming to the Australian Open with hopes of leaving a heavy 2021 behind here. Osaka won the 2021 Australian Open but have had trouble finding back to the winning way after that success. She will however be one of the names to look out for when the 2022 Australian Open kicks off as we all know what she is capable of on the right day.
