It's considered one of the four biggest tennis events in the calendar year, along with Wimbledon, the French Open, and US Open.
The 2024 Australian Open will run from Sunday the 14th of January until Sunday the 28th of January. Organisers have extended the event to 15 days for the very first time, which they claim will help prevent late-night finishes.
