Women's singles

Naomi Osaka of Japan made headlines in early 2019 with her spectacular Australian Open win. She has been ranked as No.1 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), having won five titles on the WTA Tour, including two titles at both the Grand Slam and Premier Mandatory levels.

With her shy personality and multi-ethnic background, Osaka has become one of the most marketable female athletes, second only to Serena Williams in endorsement income. Her win at the 2019 Australian Open propelled her to the top of the women's rankings, a triumph she was finally able to enjoy after controversially defeating Williams in the preceding US Open.

Men's singles

Serbia's Novak Djokovic is currently ranked No.2 in men's tennis, having won a total of seven Australian Open titles (a world record). In 2019's tournament, he beat Rafael Nadal in straight sets to win his 15th Grand Slam and his 7th Australian Open.

In 2019 alone, the world champion has earned $11 million in prize winnings. The legend is currently in Australia, warming up at the Adelaide International tennis competition ahead of his Australian Open title defence. Let's see how many world records he can get under his belt this time around!

Women's doubles

Aussie Samantha Stosur did us proud in the women's doubles this year, along with her Chinese partner Zhang Shuai. Stosur has seven Grand Slam titles to her name, while Zhang's most significant title was the win she shared with Stosur at the 2019 Australian Open.

The pair trumped defending champions Kristina Mladenovic and Tímea Babos to win the championship, marking it Stosur's first Grand Slam title since the 2014 Wimbledon mixed-doubles title and her first in women's doubles since the 2006 French Open. The win also marked the first home winner of the trophy in 14 years. We're excited to see more Aussies make us proud in the next Australian Open!

Men's doubles

Frenchmen Pierre-Hugues Herbert and France Nicolas Mahut took out the men's double match at the 2019 Australian Open, with the pair defeating Henri Kontinen from Finland and John Peers from Australia.

Herbert has now reached his career-high ranking of No. 36 in men's singles – we reckon it's only up from here for Herbert. Mahut is primarily known for his skill on the grass, for which he has won the fourth-most titles among active singles players (behind Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, and tied with Rafael Nadal).

Mixed doubles

Barbora Krejčiková from the Czech Republic and Rajeev Ram from the United States shared the mixed doubles win in the 2019 Australian Open, beating Australians Astra Sharma and John-Patrick Smith.

As a young player who recently reached No.1 in the doubles rankings (jointly with Kateřina Siniaková), we expect to see Krejčiková go from strength to strength in the next Australian Open. The accomplished Ram has achieved 19 ATP doubles titles in his career, reaching a high as world No.11 in doubles in March 2017. For the 2020 Australian Open, we look forward to seeing more unusual and successful pairings like Krejčiková and Ram.
