How To Watch the 2018 Australian Open Live Online

written by:

Australian Open

Update: 29 January 2018, Monday
Roger that! What a nail biting final showdown between Federer and Čilić with the Swiss having to recover from a five game loss to the incredibly persistent Croatian who started off poorly early in the match. But the Swiss isn’t going to let his opponent take his shot at a 6th Australian Open title, and successfully clenched a five-set victory over Čilić. With this new victory, Federer also becomes the first man in tennis history to have won 20 Grand Slams! Read more on his victory at The Telegraph. That’s all for now folks, do join us for the next tennis Grand Slam at the French Open in May.

 
The 2018 Australian Open starts on the 15th January, and at the time of writing, the big names are dropping like flies. Serena is out, Azarenka is out, Murray is out and Nadal and Djokovic are in doubt, so I guess it’s “C’mon Roger!”. This year sees the introduction of a 25 second shot-clock and it will be the first time this has been used at a grand slam, basically there will now be a 25 second time limit between points. I can’t help feeling this will diminish the spectacle of the big games, but we’ll see.
