The 2014 Australian Open was a tennis tournament that took place at Melbourne Park between 13–26 January 2014.[1] It was the 102nd edition of the Australian Open, and the first Grand Slam tournament 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.

Li Na won the women's singles, beating Dominika Cibulková in the final. Stanislas Wawrinka defeated Rafael Nadal in the men's singles final to win his first grand slam title. Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci defended their women's doubles title with a victory over Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. Łukasz Kubot and Robert Lindstedt took the men's doubles title with a victory over Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen. The mixed doubles were won by Kristina Mladenovic and Daniel Nestor, with Sania Mirza and Horia Tecău the runners-up.

Both defending singles champions lost in the quarterfinals, the first time in the open era.[2] Novak Djokovic was the three-time defending champion in the men's singles, but failed to defend his title, losing to eventual champion Wawrinka. Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka also failed to defend her title in the women's singles, losing to Agnieszka Radwańska. In addition, the men's doubles defending champions Bob & Mike Bryan also failed to defend their title, while Errani and Vinci managed to retain their title. As in previous years, this tournament's title sponsor was Kia.

Tournament[edit]

Rod Laver Arena where the Finals of the Australian Open take place

The 2014 Australian Open was the 102nd edition of the tournament and was held at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The tournament was run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was part of the 2014 ATP World Tour and the 2014 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event. There were singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which is part of the Grade A category of tournaments, and also singles, doubles and quad events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the NEC tour under the Grand Slam category.

The tournament was played on hard courts and took place over a series of 16 courts, including the three main showcourts: Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and Margaret Court Arena. The latter was undergoing refurbishment, as part of the Melbourne Park Redevelopment project.[3]

Broadcast[edit]

In Australia, all matches were broadcast live by the Seven Network. The majority of matches were shown on the network's primary channel Channel Seven, however during news programming nationwide and most night matches in Perth, coverage shifted to 7Two. Coverage was presented by Johanna Griggs, Jim Wilson, Matt White, Hamish McLachlan and Basil Zempilas, with commentary from Bruce McAvaney, Jim Courier, Sam Smith, Todd Woodbridge, John Newcombe, Rennae Stubbs, Henri Leconte and John Fitzgerald. Lleyton Hewitt, who was competing in the tournament, would become a commentator if he is knocked out.[4] Some outside court matches were shown on Fox Sports on Foxtel.
