Final preparations are underway at Melbourne Park ahead of the much anticipated Australian Open Tennis tournament, officially kicking off on Monday


Tennis superstars from across the world continue to descend on the sporting capital, with practice matches underway in the lead up.

Novak Djokovic is set to this year return to centre court, following the visa incident which saw the Serbian champion deported in 2022.


Fans are however being warned not to target the former world No. 1, with boss Craig Tiley this year putting a tough stance on spectator behaviour.
