SEVEN, 10am

In be­tween trips to the beach and bar­be­cue nights, the Aus­tralian Open has be­come syn­ony­mous with the hol­i­days. To­day, the tour­na­ment kicks off and ex­cite­ment is in the air as a new women’s champ is as­sured with 2017 win­ner Ser­ena Wil­liams miss­ing the tour­na­ment. Who will shine bright­est in her ab­sence? Ash­leigh Barty will cer­tainly have the lo­cal sup­port. On the men’s side of the draw, Roger Fed­erer will be keen to de­fend his ti­tle, but will face plenty of chal­lengers, in­clud­ing Aussie bad boy Nick Kyr­gios, fresh off his first ATP ti­tle on home soil in the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional.
