As the first Grand Slam® tournament of the year, the Australian Open holds a special place in the tennis calendar. The players, relaxed and rejuvenated after their break, reconvene in Melbourne each January for an event dubbed the “Happy Slam” by Roger Federer. The Swiss maestro has triumphed six times at Rod Laver Arena, the centre court named after the Australian legend who won his national title three times and inspired generations of players to push the boundaries in their quest for constant improvement and lasting excellence.
