Australian Open could get deciding-set tie-breakers as soon as 2019

Australian Open could get deciding-set tie-breakers as soon as 2019

"It's always special to see our defending champions - Caroline had her first grand slam win here previous year so will be keen to start 2019 on a high and of course Roger Federer has special memories of Melbourne, having won here six times, something only Novak and Roy Emerson have done in the past".

The 37-year-old American won the tournament for the seventh time two years ago when she beat her sister Venus in the final while eight weeks pregnant with her daughter Alexis Olympia, who was born the following September.

Williams returned from giving birth to her first child to reach the 2018 Wimbledon and US Open finals, but suffered upset losses in both to leave her stuck on 23 major wins. The 2017 Australian Open win was the 23rd individual Grand Slam title for Williams. The move by Tennis Australia would leave just the French Open as the only grand slam that does not have tie-breakers.

104 tennis players have secured their places in the main draw of the Open championship of Australia-2019.

Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki are the singles defending champions.

Tournament officials said Wednesday that Andy Murray, who is returning after an injury layoff, has entered using a protected ranking.

The world's top 101 men and 102 women have all confirmed they will compete at next month's Open in Melbourne.

A quarter-finalist in Melbourne earlier that year, Kyrgios has been seeded in his past 11 grand slam appearances. Tiley also said about Caroline, "It's always special to see our defending champions - Caroline had her first Grand Slam win here previous year so will be keen to start 2019 on a high".
