The Murray River Open (Melbourne 1) and Great Ocean Road Open (Melbourne 2) will help get the ATP players match ready after their 14 days of quarantine. Melbourne Park will host the two 250 ATP tournaments, as well as the ATP Cup, in the lead up to the Australian Open. The events will now take place from the 1st to the 7th of February due to a change in schedule. 

Both tournaments will have 56 singles players and 24 doubles teams, meaning that every single player in the Australian Open this year will be playing a lead up tournament of some sort.  

World No. 14, David Goffin, will be the top seed at the Murray River Open. Since working with a new coach, Belgian, Germain Gigounon, the World No.14  will look to build on his semi-final appearance in Antalya, Turkey this season. Joining Goffin will be Russian young gun Karen Khachanov (World No. 20) who will be looking for his first tour title since 2018. 

Australian Jordan Thompson will be the 11th seed at the tournament. The World No. 52 has been training in Canberra with Nick Kyrgios and John Millman, saying we have been training pretty hard, at least two hours a day, and then getting in the gym afterwards.” Thompson played 8 events after the pandemic hit last year. 

Other notable players include Hubert Hurkacz (World No. 29), Jannik Sinner (World No. 36), Tennys Sandgren (World No. 50) and Kevin Anderson (World No. 82).  

Moving onto the Great Ocean Road Open, Stan ‘the man’ Wawrinka will lead the way as the top seed of the tournament. The World No. 18 will be hoping to claim his first ATP title since May 2017. Joining Wawrinka is the 2017 ATP Finals Champion and World No. 19, Grigor Dimitrov.  

Young guns Felix Auger-Aliassime (World No. 21), Borna Coric (World No. 25) and Taylor Fritz (World No. 30) make up an exciting group of players that will in turn provide fans with with high quality tennis.  

World No. 47, Nick Kyrgios, will be back in action after electing not to compete overseas during COVID-19. Kyrgios has been hard at work with Thompson, writing on Instagram that “Iron sharpens iron…thanks @jordanthompson2004 for sharpening me up.” Kyrgios seems to have put in an extensive amount of work over the offseason.   

Veterans Richard Gasquet (World No. 48), and Giles Simon (World No. 64) as well as Tommy Paul (World No. 53) will also be looking to start their year off right on the hard courts. 

Matches will be played mostly on the outside courts at Melbourne Park.
