At the Australian Open on Saturday, in her first Grand Slam final, Angelique Kerber pulled off a stunning win over Serena Williams. On Sunday, Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray to win his sixth Australian Open, and the 11th Grand Slam title of his career. Kerber's win in the women's tournament was a huge upset, as Howard Bryant told NPR's Scott Simon on Saturday. Williams, the world's top-ranked female tennis player, looked like she was headed for victory: "Serena Williams went the entire tournament without dropping a set. She dominated. For Murray, it was the fifth Australian Open final where he fell short of victory — and the fourth time the Scottish player lost the tournament to Djokovic. In an emotional speech after the game, Murray thanked his wife — pregnant with their first child, and approaching her due date — and vowed to be on the first plane home.

The six-time Australian Open winner is last on the Margaret Court Arena in the day session and is seeded 14th mainly because he’s spent half of the previous season out through injury.

Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin pulled off an Australian Open upset for the ages on Thursday when he sent Novak Djokovic tumbling out of the second round of the grand slam.

The history of the Australian Open, one of the four Grand Slams, is truly rich while the current format and structure only enhance the tournament’s appeal. It is surprising that a game like tennis, which is hugely popular around the world, only has four major tournaments with the Australian Open being one of them.

Amongst these tournaments, the Australian Open takes precedence because it is the first of the four. The Australian Open history goes back to 1905 when the tournament began at
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Even by Australian Open standards, back-to-back shockers have resulted in a most unexpected quarterfinal. The season-opening Grand Slam has a tendency to be unpredictable, but losing six-time champion Novak Djokovic and fifth-ranked Dominic Thiem within a few hours on Monday leaves Hyeon Chung and Tennys Sandgren playing for a spot in the semifinals. The 58th-ranked Chung relentlessly attacked a clearly injured Djokovic in a 7-6 (4), 7-5, 7-6 (3) fourth-round victory, becoming the first South Korean to reach the last eight at a Grand Slam. Then there's Tennys.

The Australian Open is a tennis tournament held annually over the last fortnight of January in Melbourne, Australia. The tournament is the first of the four Grand Slam tennis events held each year, preceding the French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. It features men's and women's singles; men's, women's, and mixed doubles; junior's championships; and wheelchair, legends, and exhibition events. Before the Melbourne Park stadium era, tournament dates fluctuated as well, in particular in the early years because of the climate of each site or exceptional events. For example, the 1919 tournament was held in January 1920 (the 1920 tournament was played in March) and the 1923 tournament in Brisbane took place in August when the weather was not too hot and wet.

Top-ranked Simona Halep opens against Australian wild card Destanee Aiava, has a potential second-round match against 2014 Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., and is in the same half as Garbine Muguruza, the Wimbledon champion. Bouchard, who has fallen on tough times in recent years and comes into Melbourne ranked 81st, faces France’s Oceane Dodin in the first round. Third-seeded Muguruza is in a difficult quarter containing former Australian Open champions Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber, and U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys. The five-time major winner finished 2017 ranked No. 60, meaning she missed out on a seeding for the Australian Open and could face 2016 champion Kerber in the third round. “There’s no easy way to get to the top,” Sharapova told the crowd at Margaret Court Arena before the draw.

At times, it is something of a guessing game to figure out what would be a good subject to engage Williams’ attention. There isn’t all that much new to discover regarding the mechanics of her forehand, backhand and trademark serve. After the Gibbs win it seemed like a good idea to take a walk down memory lane to the first time she and older sister, Venus, played the Australian Open. The year was 1998 and they were quite self-assured young ladies of the teen variety. MORE TENNIS Williams won both encounters, in the Australian Open second round and Wimbledon first round. “If it’s Serena, I’m looking forward to it,” said Strycova, whose best Grand Slam result is a quarterfinal showing at 2014 Wimbledon. “That’s why you train.
