Rafael Nadal (2nd place, Spain) and Novak Djokovic (5th place, Serbia) will compete for the most championships at the Australian Open.
The first major tennis tournament of the year, the Australian Open (total prize money of 76.5 million Australian dollars), opens on the 16th at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia.
When Carlos Alcaras (Spain), world number one in the men’s professional tennis (ATP) singles, was absent due to a leg injury, the tournament became a structure for Nadal and Djokovic to compete for the most titles in the men’s singles. If the two did not lose, they accepted the bracket to face each other in the final.
Nadal, who holds the record for the most in this category with 22 major victories in his career, can further distance himself from his competitors if he wins this event. Djokovic and Roger Federer (retired, Switzerland), who are tied together with Nadal as the ‘Big 3 men’s tennis’, have won 21 and 20 major championships, respectively. 메이저사이트
Djokovic, who faces Nadal, has shown an overwhelmingly strong appearance at the Australian Open. He reached the top nine times in the singles event alone. It is the most wins ever.
In the women’s singles, attention is focused on the challenge of Sibiong Tech (1st place, Poland), who is emerging as the strongest player, to win the 4th major championship in his career. Sibiontech won the French Open and the US Open last year.
Naomi Osaka (Japan), who became the first Asian male and female to reach the top of the world tennis rankings, will not be participating in the tournament due to her pregnancy.
In Korea, Kwon Soon-woo (84th, Dangjin City Hall) competes in the men’s singles.
Kwon Soon-woo, who achieved his best performance in the major tournament last year, advancing to the second round, is looking beyond that in this tournament.
Kwon Soon-woo is currently on the rise, reaching the semifinals in the 2nd tournament in Adelaide.
