The Australian Open 2022 takes place from January 17-30. The first Grand Slam of the year, on the hard courts of Melbourne, is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the tennis calendar. Novak Djokovic is aiming to win the men’s title for the fourth year in a row – and the 10th overall – but could somebody else, such as last year’s beaten finalist Danill Medvedev, deny the defending champion? In the women’s draw, Naomi Osaka defends her crown against favourite Ashleigh Barty and, of course, British teenage sensation Emma Raducanu.
