Australian Open Tennis History 

The Australian Open was first played in 1905 at the Warehouseman's Cricket Ground in Melbourne, a facility now known as the Albert Reserve Tennis Centre. 

The tournament was originally known as the Australasian Championships but was not chosen as a major championship until 1924. The Australasian Championships became the Australian Championships in 1927 and the Australian Open in 1969. 

The Australian Open has been staged in five Australian and two New Zealand cities: Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Christchurch and Hastings before permanently moving to Melbourne in 1972 because it attracted the most spectators.

The Australian Open was contested at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club in Melbourne from 1972. Following the 1983 Australian Open, the International Tennis Federation urged the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia to move the tournament because Kooyong was too small to host such a big event.

Now held at Melbourne Park, the Australian Open is one of the most popular tournaments on the ATP Tour.
