Tennis titans return to Aus Open
The Australian Open, Nine, Monday at 10am Qld, 11am NSW
THE biggest names in men’s and women’s tennis descend on Melbourne for the Australian Open.
The 2019 event will feature the return of Serena Williams, who last competed here in 2017 when she won the title while eight weeks pregnant with baby Olympia.
Should Williams win another Australian Open, she will equal Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles.
Titans Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray are both on the comeback trail after a challenging year of injuries.
After notching his 20th Grand Slam title in Melbourne last year, Roger Federer will be chasing a record seventh victory. Rebecca Maddern (pictured), James Bracey and Tony Jones host Nine’s coverage.
