The 2020 Australian Open is a Grand Slam tennis tournament that is taking place at Melbourne Park, from 20 January to 2 February 2020. It is the 108th edition of the Australian Open, the 52nd in the Open Era, and the first Grand Slam of the year. The tournament consists of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Junior and wheelchair players compete in singles and doubles tournaments. As in previous years, the tournament's main sponsor is Kia.

Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka are the defending champions in Men's Singles and Women's Singles, respectively.

This is the first edition of the Australian Open with GreenSet, a hard surface produced by GreenSet Worldwide.[1] GreenSet is the third type of hard surface used for the Australian Open.

The 2020 Australian Open is the 108th edition of the tournament and is held at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The tournament is run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is part of the 2020 ATP Tour and the 2020 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consists of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as the mixed doubles events. There are singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which are part of the Grade A category of tournaments. There are also singles, doubles and quad events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the NEC tour under the Grand Slam category.

The tournament is played on hard courts and is taking place across a series of 25 courts, the three main show courts Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Arena and Margaret Court Arena. 1573 Arena (formerly Show Court Two) was upgraded into a main show court.

Impact of bushfires

The bushfires that had burned large portions of Australia for months, left a smoke haze over Melbourne on the first day of qualifying. The air over Melbourne on that day was rated as the worst in the world.[2] In qualifying, play was delayed, some players called for medical timeouts and Dalila Jakupović was forced to retire, due to a coughing fit brought on by the poor air quality.[3]
