The 2013 Australian Open was a tennis tournament that took place in Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia, from 16 to 27 January 2013.[1] It was the 101st edition of the Australian Open, and the first Grand Slam event of the year. The tournament consisted of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair players competed in singles and doubles tournaments.

All four of the main events in singles and same-sex doubles were won by the top seeds—Novak Djokovic in men's singles, Victoria Azarenka in women's singles, Bob and Mike Bryan in men's doubles, and Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci in women's doubles. This year's Australian Open was the first Grand Slam event since that tournament's 2004 edition in which the women's singles and doubles were won by the top seeds, and the first Grand Slam event since the 1997 Wimbledon Championships in which the men's and women's singles and doubles were all won by the top seeds.[2]

The 2013 Australian Open featured a significant increase in prize money in comparison with previous years, with all players competing for a share of AUD$30 million, becoming the highest paying tournament of all time. This was the result of an ATP players' meeting, primarily focusing on the money received by players who exit the competition in the earlier rounds.[3] All prize money is in Australian dollars (AUD).
