Melbourne, Australia, 7 December 2023 | Leigh Rogers

The official entry list for Australian Open 2024 was unveiled today.

Nine Australians receive direct acceptance into their home Grand Slam, including world No.12 Alex de Minaur and three-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist Ajla Tomljanovic, who is using a protected ranking as she continues her comeback from knee surgery.

A total of eight Australian men have received direct acceptance, which is a 25-year high.

Three players – Max Purcell, Aleksandar Vukic and Rinky Hijikata – are direct acceptances at the Australian Open for the first time, a reward for their career-best seasons in 2023.

This boosts the number of Australian contenders in the singles competitions to 15, following yesterday’s announcement that six Aussies have received wildcards.
