In all likelihood, tennis is going to be the main topic of TV conversation for the first half of January. The tournament starts on Jan 13 and ends on Jan 26. It will be played on hard courts, including the Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, and Hisense Arena.
Some of the seeded players have already played their warm-up games for the first Grand Slam of 2014. Who do you think will win in the 2014 Australian Open? Reigning champions Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka reportedly carry "strong odds" to defend their titles. However, there are other top-ranked players in the tournament that they also have to watch out for. Roger Federer, for one, is hungry for another Grand Slam to add in his record of 17 Grand Slams up-to-date. Then, there are the favourite players, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova, who both appear to be healthy and ready for the Grand Slam. Williams, the defending Brisbane champion, is poised to achieve even more great highlights for her career. On the other hand, Sharapova's form seems significantly promising.
The grueling matches can keep you glued to your seat. The notable contenders certainly serve a threat to each and every one of them.
