Australian Open 2018 Tournament Schedule

Who is playing the Australian Open in 2018?

Just two singles matches remain at the 2018 Australian Open as the first Grand Slam of the year heads to its conclusion: Saturday's women's final between Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep, the top two seeds in the women's draw facing off for their first major title; and Sunday's men's singles final between Roger Federer, the defending champion bidding for his twentieth Grand Slam win, and Marin Cilic.

From the first-round exits of Venus Williams and Jack Sock onwards, the first Grand Slam of the year saw, as always, plenty of upheaval as the contenders jostled for position in the wide-open women's draw and the generational battle in men's tennis continued to rage - and after some extraordinary matches, the conclusion to the 2018 Australian Open is set to be intensely exciting as the first major of the season enters its closing stages. 

Halep vs Wozniacki: Who will win their first major?
'Slamless no. 1' is a tag that's been hung around the necks of both Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep. Wozniacki reigned as world no. 1 for 67 weeks earlier in her career, but despite her 27 career titles and two runner-up finishes at the US Open, that all-important, career-legitimizing Grand Slam title has always eluded her. Halep burst on to the scene in 2014 looking every inch the Grand Slam champion in waiting - but when the French Open twice slipped through her fingers, and she struggled for strong results at other majors, including consecutive first-round exits at the Australian Open in 2016-17, the questions mounted even as she came the fifth woman to rank world no. 1 in 2017: Did she have what it took to win that biggest prize of all? 

Well, after a fortnight of fascinating battles in the women's draw, either Simona Halep or Caroline Wozniacki will be Slamless no longer as the two face off in Saturday's Australian Open final - and the winner will be ranked world no. 1 to boot. 

tWith defending champion Serena Williams and two-time winner Victoria Azarenka both absent, there were only two former Australian Open champions in the women's draw, and all the talk was of how wide open the draw was, how rife with opportunity for anyone who could step up and seize it. That discussion only intensified when 2017 runner-up Venus Williams fell victim to a first-round upset against Belinda Bencic, a former top-10 player rebuilding her career after injury, and several other potential contenders fell early - ninth seed and former semifinalist Johanna Konta out in the second round, as was third seed Garbine Muguruza; an ailing Coco Vandeweghe, a semifinalist in 2017, out in the first round; US Open champion Sloane Stephens out in the first round; French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko unable to get past the second round. 

Well, for all that chaos, the top two women's seeds in the draw, Halep and Wozniacki, both made the final - and were joined in the closing stages by the most recent winner of the Australian Open in the draw, Angelique Kerber, whose superb run saw her oust Maria Sharapova in the third round and was only ended by a mighty effort from Halep in an instant classic of a marathon semifinal, as well as a new face in the form of talented young Belgian Elise Mertens, champion at the Hobart International in the run-up.

That's not to say it has been drama-free for either of the top two seeds - indeed, both have had to save match points, Halep in two different matches. The world no. 1 incurred an ankle injury in her first round and then had to outlast Lauren Davis in a superb third-round encounter that went to 15-13 in the third set (first match points saved). She eliminated two of the biggest hitters in women's tennis, Naomi Osaka and sixth seed Karolina Pliskova, by identical 6-3, 6-2 scorelines to make the semifinal, and then she faced Kerber - one of her toughest rivals, against whom her head-to-head was poised at 4-4, and a counterpuncher almost as supreme as Halep herself. It took her two hours and 20 minutes as the match surged this way and that, and she had to save two match points, but the Romanian prevailed 6-3, 4-6, 9-7 to reach her first Australian Open final.

Wozniacki's test came early against the unheralded Jana Fett, who held match points over the Dane in the second round, but once she subdued that test Wozniacki has been fairly ruthless. Coming into this season on a high after winning the biggest title of her career, the WTA Finals Singapore, at the end of last year, Wozniacki was dominant over wins in former major semifinalists Kiki Bertens and Magdalena Rybarikova and then overcame an attempted comeback from former top-10 player Carla Suarez Navarro to reach the semifinals, where she subdued Mertens 6-3, 7-6(2). 

Has Wozniacki ever had a better chance to win a Grand Slam? Instead of facing Kim Clijsters or Serena Williams, her adversaries at the US Open in 2009 and 2014, she's up against Halep, who trails 2-4 in their head-to-head and has lost their last three matches. But then, has Halep ever had a better chance to win a Grand Slam? For once, she's not facing Sharapova or Ostapenko, or anyone who can blow her off the court with raw power, but a counterpuncher like herself, and one who has just as much reason to find the occasion overwhelming. With so much going to the winner - their first major, the Australian Open title, the no. 1 ranking - who can rise to the occasion on Saturday?


Roger Federer to face Marin Cilic in the final

Is Roger Federer about to lift a Grand Slam trophy for the twentieth time? That was the question at the start of the 2018 Australian Open, and very nearly two weeks later it's still the one on everybody's lips with the defending champion into the final and only sixth seed Marin Cilic standing between him and a sixth Australian Open title.

Unlike his remarkable triumph 12 months ago, when he came in low-seeded, rusty after six months without competitive play and struggled with minor injuries throughout the tournament, Federer's preparation for this year's Australian Open was very nearly perfect - a regulation off-season, and a nice warm-up at the Hopman Cup in Perth where he won the title for Switzerland with Belinda Bencic - and it has shown in the way he has cruised through the draw in Melbourne. In fact, Federer has reached the final without dropping a set, raising the tantalising possibility that he could win the title without dropping a set - something he hasn't achieved in all of six months, since winning Wimbledon last summer. 

With straight-sets victories over Aljaz Bedene, Jan-Lennard Struff, Richard Gasquet and Marton Fucsovics - who beat projected fourth-round opponent Sam Querrey, who made two Grand Slam semifinalists last summer, in the third round - under his belt, Federer was most severely tested in his quarterfinal against two-time Australian Open semifinalist Tomas Berdych, who had played brilliantly to beat Juan Martin del Potro. Berdych led 5-2 in the opening set, but a lucky net cord helped Federer get back on serve and he dominated the ensuing tie break, allowing Berdych just one point. From there, it was smooth sailing for Federer into the semifinals, where he faced the unknown quantity of Hyeon Chung. 

Chung was one of the big stories of the tournament as the 21-year-old player, champion at the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan last November, made his breakthrough on the Grand Slam stage. Despite being unseeded, Chung defeated fourth seed Alexander Zverev in the third round before facing off with his idol, six-time champion Novak Djokovic, in the round of 16 - and coming out the victor in straight sets. Chung then backed up that victory with a straight-sets win over Tennys Sandgren, the world no. 97-ranked American journeyman who played the tournament of his life to beat Dominic Thiem and Stan Wawrinka on his way to the quarterfinals, to become the first Korean player to reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam. But unfortunately in that semifinal, he was caught between a rock and a hard place - the rock being a severely blistered left foot, the hard place being Rod Laver Arena with Federer across the net. It was too much for Chung, who retired trailing 1-6, 2-5.

The Australian Open final will therefore be a rematch of last year's Wimbledon final - albeit hopefully a more entertaining one - as Federer takes on big-serving, hard-hitting Marin Cilic, who became the first Croatian to reach the final in Melbourne after surviving a turbulent half of the draw. Cilic came quietly through the first few rounds while attention focused on Nick Kyrgios, the Australian maverick who came in with great form after winning Brisbane and lived up to his talent with victory over former runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, only to then fall to third seed Grigor Dimitrov in brilliant form - who then suffered a letdown against Great Britain's Kyle Edmund, who had opened his tournament with a win over US Open champion Kevin Anderson and announced his coming of age by his victory over Dimitrov to reach a first, unexpected Grand Slam semifinal. 

Cilic, meanwhile, had outlasted Rafael Nadal and eventually benefited from the top seed's retirement in the fifth seed of their quarterfinal, and rose to the occasion to see off Edmund with a solid display and reach his third Grand Slam final. Can the Croatian, who has beaten Federer before - albeit just once, but in crushing style and in a Grand Slam no less - deny Federer his twentieth major title at the scene of the Swiss maestro's return to Grand Slam glory?

About the Australian Open

Known as the ‘Happy Slam’, the Australian Open has a history stretching back to 1905. It was then known as the Australasian Championships and then the Australian Championships, before becoming the Australian Open in 1969. The tournament has been staged in five Australian and two New Zealand cities before finding its current home in Melbourne in 1972, when it was played at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club before moving to Melbourne Park in 1988. This was when the event switched from grass to its current surface of hard courts.

Melbourne Park's main stadium is the Rod Laver Arena, seating nearly 15,000 people and equipped with a retractable roof. The Margaret Court and Hisense Arenas round out the major stages at the tournament.

Almost every legend of tennis, past and present, has lifted either the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup or the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Trophy at the Australian Open. Until recently, Roy Emerson held the record for most men’s titles, winning his first of six titles in 1961 before dominating the tournament with five consecutive titles between 1963 and 1967, but he was joined in 2016 by Novak Djokovic when he claimed his sixth title (2008, 2011-13, 2015-16). Djokovic already held the record for most consecutive titles won in the Open Era and could become the all-time most successful male singles player at the Australian Open if he triumphs once more in 2018. Roger Federer follows Emerson and Djokovic with five Australian Open titles, including a stunning comeback triumph in 2017 over great rival Rafael Nadal, who’s lone title at Melbourne Park came in 2009 with a victory over Federer.

On the women's side, Margaret Court won the Australian Open an incredible 11 times, including four times in the Open Era, finishing in 1973. 21-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, with her six Australian Open titles (2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2015), holds the record for most women’s titles in the Open Era, while Margaret Court (1969, 1970, 1971), Evonne Goolagong Crawley (1974, 1975, 1976), Steffi Graf (1988, 1989, 1990), Monica Seles (1991, 1992, 1993) and Martina Hingis (1997, 1998, 1999) are tied for the most consecutive Open Era titles.

The last Australian to win the men’s title was Mark Edmonson in 1967, while Chris O’Neil in 1978 holds the honour for the women.
