The 100th Australian Open gets underway on January 16th as the superstars of men's and women's tennis are limbering up for the first Grand Slam of 2012. The journalists at Live-Tennis.com will provide fans with latest news from the courts, daily match previews and pointing out where to watch the Australian Open live( http://www.live-tennis.com/category/Tennis-News/Australian-Open-2012-dates-and-live-stream-201101310002/ ).
Novak Djokovic looked in awesome form during the pre-season Mubadala World Tennis exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi and the world number one is strong favourite to win a third Australian Open title.
However, Roger Federer is keen to show that 30 is the new 20 and after his form at the end of 2011 the Swiss star will be quietly fancying his chances of winning a sixth Australian Open title and a 17th Grand Slam title.
In the women's draw, Petra Kvitova is being hailed as the 'next big thing' but she is yet to prove that she can win a major event on these slower outdoor hard courts. Kvitova faces strong competition from defending champion Kim Clijsters and China's Li Na who always performs well in Australia.
Tournament director Craig Tilley is anticipating another memorable event. "It's incredible to once again have every available top player in both the men's and women's fields heading to play the Australian Open live( http://www.livestreamingsport.com/subcategory/live-streaming-tennis/australian-open/ )," he said.
"These superstars of world sport love coming to Melbourne. They love the Australian Open and the fans, the city, the facilities at Melbourne Park and the way we look after them while they are here. They in turn will provide an unbelievable couple of weeks of drama, excitement and entertainment for all of us lucky enough to attend the event or follow it on TV or online. We are in for some incredible tennis in January. I can't wait!"
