The first Grand Slam of the year, the 2009 Australian Open, gets underway on January 19 from Melbourne, Australia. And the event promises to shine like no other under the hot summer Australian sun.
Both fields are absolutely wide open and unpredictable with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and 2008 winner Novak Djokovic reigning as the favorites on the menís side while Andy Roddick and the French quartet of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet give chase.
The womenís field enjoys similar parity. With defending champion Maria Sharapova sidelined with a right shoulder injury the title will be open to the Serena and Venus Williams, Jelena Jankovic, Dinara Safina, Ana Ivanovic and Elena Dementieva all gunning for the title.
