Tennis Stats and Record
The Australian Open has become one of the best tournaments on tour with its amazing courts, its hospitality, and its ability to continuously improve as a tournament both in the way it is run, and in the way it is perceived. The Australian Open is one of the hardest Grand Slams to win, especially in recent years. These are the top players the tournament has ever seen. This list is based on the most titles, and the most important players to have won it.
1. Novak Djokovic, Serbia, 8 Australian Open Titles
- Novak Djokovic has absolutely dominated the Melbourne courts. Djokovic has won the most Australian Opens in history, and it is his favourite tournament. Djokovic feels at home in Melbourne and whenever he plays in Australia, he is unstoppable. Djokovic has continuously showed us that on hard-courts no one can compare to him, and when he is in the zone, he will destroy anyone. Djokovic will most certainly win more titles in Australia, and in dominant fashion.
2. Roger Federer, Switzerland, 6 Australian Open Titles
- Roger Federer has won 2 of his last 3 Grand Slam titles in Australia, continuously breaking the record for most Grand Slams in history. Roger Federer is one of the best players the tennis world has ever seen and there will never be anyone like him. Federer dominated in Australia in the 2000s, and he was able to find some form again in 2017 and 2018 to win back to back Australian Opens and show the world that he is still here to play his best tennis. Roger Federer suffered a bad 2020 Australian Open tournament due to injury, but he is sure to bounce back and potentially win another Australian Open.
3. Andre Agassi, USA, 4 Australian Open Titles
- Andre Agassi is a player than so many fans miss. Agassi had an incredible career, and his flair is yet to be reproduced on the court. Agassi loved playing in Australia and has played some incredible matches. One of his best matches was his 5-setter against Pete Sampras in the 2000 Australian Open Semi-Final. Agassi has been missed and he will always be remembered as one of the best players to have ever played in Australia.
4. Mats Wilander, Sweden, 3 Australian Open Titles
- Mats Wilander is one of the most underrated champions of all time. Wilander was incredibly consistent on the hard-courts, even winning 3 Australian Open titles in the 1980s. Wilander's ability to move quickly around the court, and run down ever ball, showed us his heart and his endurance to always give it his all. Wilander needs to be remembered as one of the most passionate players ever.
5. Pete Sampras, USA, 2 Australian Open Titles
- Pete Sampras is one of the best players of all time, and he has had some incredible matches in Australia. Pete has suffered many defeats when he was so close to reaching the Final in Australia, including his 5-set loss to Andre Agassi in 2000. Pete was able to bag two Australian Open titles in 1994 and 1997, ensuring that he was able to win 3 out of the 4 majors in the world of tennis. Pete Sampras was the expert of serve and volleying, and some of his best serve and volleys have come in Australia.
