Competing in the women’s tournament is Greece’s Maria Sakkari, who is one of the highest-ranked Greek female tennis players in history.
For the men’s competition, world number three Stefanos Tsitsipas will return to the courts and is sure to draw in Greek Australian supporters. Last year, Tsitsipas was runner up to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open men’s final.
Nick Kyrgios was a notable absentee as the Australian Open unveiled its main draw entry list for the men’s and women’s singles.
Kyrgios has long been hoping to make his return at his home grand slam after a lengthy absence due to multiple injuries, but appears no certainty to make an appearance at Melbourne Park in January.
The Australian Open 2024 will take place at Melbourne Park from January 14-28. To purchase tickets and find out more, visit auspopen.com.
