From January 14 to January 27, Melbourne hosts the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of 2019. Here's how to follow the matches in free streaming
It's already time for great tennis: from January 14 until January 27, Melbourne hosts the 2019 Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament. This is the first major event of the year and surprises are always around the corner. There is great anticipation for the season debut of Nadal, still stopped by knee problems, and to see if at 37 years old Federer will be able to conquer a new Grand Slam tournament.
The number one favorite is Novak Djokovic: since mid-2018 the Serb is back on the levels of past years and seems to be unbeatable on any surface. After winning Wimbledon and the US Open, the number one in the World wants to continue the winning streak. Among the outsiders, eyes are on the "terrible youngsters", the new generation of world tennis that will take over in the coming years and that wants to start conquering important trophies. Zverev, Tsitsipas (who will challenge the Italian Berrettini), and Krygios could be the surprises on which to bet. As for the Italians, Fognini, Cecchinato, Seppi (finalist at last week's Sydney tournament), Berrettini, Fabbiano, Travaglia and Vanni will be on the draw. Here's how to watch the Australian Open 2019 in streaming.
