The 2019 Australian Open is a Grand Slam tennis tournament that is taking place at Melbourne Park from 14 to 27 January 2019. It will be the 107th edition of the Australian Open, the 51st in the Open Era, and the first Grand Slam of the year. The tournament will consist of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Junior and wheelchair players will compete in singles and doubles tournaments. As in previous years, the tournament's main sponsor is Kia.

This will be the first Australian Open to feature final set tie-breaks, which will be introduced in all match formats. If the match reaches 6–6 in the final set, the first player to score 10 points and be leading by at least 2 points wins the match.[1] Katie Boulter and Ekaterina Makarova were the first players in a main draw to compete in the new tie-break format.[2]

For the first time in the men's singles competition, a 10-minute break due to heat will be allowed after the third set if the Australian Open Heat Stress Scale reaches 4.0 or higher.[3]

In a five-year deal starting at the 2019 tournament, Dunlop took over from Wilson as the suppliers of the tennis balls.[4][5][6]

Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki were the defending men's and women's singles champions, but were unsuccessful in their title defense, with Federer losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round and Wozniacki losing to Maria Sharapova in the third round, respectively.
