Australian Open 2024, the first tennis Grand Slam of the calendar year, is set to kick off with some exciting clashes starting on Sunday, January 14. The defending champion Novak Djokovic is targeting his 11th title in Melbourne and overall 25th major in the two-week tournament.

Djokovic is facing the 18-year-old Grand Slam debutant Dino Prizmic in the first round and can potentially face three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray in the round. With Rafael Nadal missing out due to a fresh injury, the Serbian faces the biggest threat to his bid for the title from the world no Carlos Alcaraz, who is clashing against the former no.7 Richard Gasquet.

In the men's singles event, Ben Shelton vs Roberto Bautista, Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Matteo Berrettini and Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Dominic Thiem are some of the mouth-watering clashes drawn for the first round. 

India's top-ranked tennis player Sumit Nagal has secured the qualification to singles after a gap of three years and is the only Indian representative in this tournament. Nagal is facing a tough draw as he takes on the current Kazakhstani no. 1 player Alexander Bublik in the first round.

In the women's singles event, the defending champion Aryna Sabalenka takes on German youngster Ella Seidel in the first round. Four-time Grand Slam winner and the current world no.1 Iga Swiatek faces a tough draw as she is lined up against Sofia Kenin in the opening game and can potentially face the 2016 Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber in the second round.
