Beginning in 1905, the competition was originally played on grass, until the switch was made to Rebound Ace in 1988. In 2008 the shift to the current playing surface, Plexicushion, was made.

Roy Emerson, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are tied holding the record for the most Australian Open Men’s Singles titles, with six. Margaret Court (after which one of the Open’s main venues is named) holds the record for most Women’s Singles titles, with 11.

Crowd records have consistently been broken during the last few years, with more than 720,000 people attending across the course of the fortnight.

Current Champions:

Men’s Singles: Roger Federer defeated Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1
Women’s Singles: Caroline Wozniacki defeat Simona Halep 7-6, 3-6, 6-4
