Description:

The Australian Open is one of the best tennis tournaments in the world held each year. It has been running in the city of Melbourne. The tournament is one of the Grand Slams and features both male and female tennis players in singles, doubles and juniors'.

The 2013 Australian open will be among the biggest prize earners in history. This is because it will allocate more money in each round as compared to any other event that has been held. The 2013 edition for both men and women singles will each allocate AUD$2.43 million. This will be the highest prize in the history.

Additionally in the round of 16, both semis and quarters have increased by 14%. The first rounds double prizes have been increased to more than 30%. The amount of money allocated for the three rounds of qualifying has been increased to 15%. The increase which is large in the qualifying round is aimed at making lower ranked players earn something big that will make them have decent living.

Top ranked players expected

The 2013 Australian Open will attract top world ranked players. Among them includes big names like Roger Federer, Novav Djokovic, David Ferer and Andy Murray. Ladies top seeds expected to grace the occasion include William sisters, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki.

However one of the ranked male attractions Rafael Nadal is not 100% sure of making it to the Melbourne Park come January because he has yet to recover fully from left knee injury.

There are other new initiatives for the 2013 series. One to watch out is the Hawk Eye which will be unveiled in the Show Courts number 2 and 3. There are also new practicing and health facilities for the player in the tournament. This included 8 new built clay courts in the Tennis Center.

There is a scheduled Hall of Fame exhibition match for Andre Agassi. This will be the Legends match for men. For women, Lindsay Davenport, Martina Hingis and Martina Navratiliva will play. On the final Saturday of the 2013 Australian Open, Roy Emerson who has won six times will be honored.
