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.

Day 7 (January 19)[edit]

Former world number one and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic caused the biggest upset of the tournament thus far, coming from a set down to defeat world number one, five-time Australian Open champion and 17-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams for the first time in five attempts.[18][19] Her victory not only ended Williams' 25-match winning streak, which had dated back to Cincinnati last year, but also earned worldwide recognition and was one of the most discussed matches on social media, beating the record previously set during the 2012 Australian Open men's final.[20][21][22][23][24][25] It was later revealed that Williams had played through the match with a back injury, which affected her performance in this match.[26]

Elsewhere, 6-time Australian Open champions, the Bryan Brothers made their earliest exit at the Australian Open in 11 years after they were defeated by the unseeded duo of Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen. The match lasted only 78 minutes, as Butorac and Klaasen won 7–6 (9), 6–4.[27] Eugenie Bouchard became the first Canadian woman to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal since Patricia Hy-Boulais did so at the 1992 US Open.[28]

Day 9 (January 21)[edit]

Eugenie Bouchard defeated Ana Ivanovic to become only the second Canadian to ever reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam in the open era, after Carling Bassett.[32]

Another Serbian, Novak Djokovic, lost a five-set thriller to Stanislas Wawrinka, ending his 25 match winning streak at the event and 28 match winning streak overall. The defeat also ensured that there would be a new Australian Open finalist in the bottom half, as neither player from the opposing quarter-final (David Ferrer and Tomáš Berdych) had reached the final before. Berdych beat Ferrer in four sets to reach his first Australian Open semi-final and became the latest player to have reached at least the semi-finals of all four majors.[33]

Day 14 (January 26)[edit]

Stanislas Wawrinka won the first two sets against Rafael Nadal in the final. In winning the first set, Wawrinka was down 0–40 while serving for it at 5–3, but Nadal was unable to return any of Wawrinka's next five serves, which proved to be Wawrinka's 34th consecutive successful hold of serve. In the second set, Wawrinka broke in the opening game and held his own serve to lead 2–0, before Nadal sustained a back injury and needed a medical timeout. Wawrinka comfortably won the set as commentators speculated that Nadal may have been considering forfeiting the match and was seen to be in tears during changeovers. Nadal continued and managed to win the third set, despite facing 15–40 in the first game on his own serve and also facing 15–40 while serving for the set at 5–3, as Wawrinka appeared to be suffering from nerves. Wawrinka won the match in the fourth set by winning the last eight points without reply. Pete Sampras awarded Wawrinka the trophy. This was the first time since Sergi Bruguera's 1993 French Open win that the winner of a Grand Slam men's event beat both number one and two seeds to clinch the championship; Wawrinka also became the first player to beat both Djokovic and Nadal in the same grand slam.[46][47][48]

For Wawrinka, it was his first career Grand Slam title. In twelve previous match versus Nadal, he had not won a single set. Wawrinka became the third Swiss player to win a Grand Slam after Martina Hingis (who won five singles titles) and Roger Federer (who has won 17 to date). It was also the first time Nadal had lost a major final to anyone other than Federer or Novak Djokovic.[49]
