Melbourne, Australia , 19 January 2024 | Leigh Rogers

Super Saturday has arrived at Australian Open 2024.

It is traditionally the biggest day on the tournament calendar, with thousands of fans descending on Melbourne Park to soak up the electric atmosphere across the precinct.

For those hoping to cheer on their Aussie favourites, they are in for a treat.

There are 20 local players scheduled to compete, including world No.1 Storm Hunter featuring in a second-round women’s doubles match.

The 29-year-old and her Czech partner Katerina Siniakova face the all-Australian combination of Destanee Aiava and Maddison Inglis at 1573 Arena this afternoon.

Reigning men’s doubles champions Rinky Hijikata and Jason Kubler open play at Court 3 this morning.

The future stars of Australian tennis are also in action, with five Aussies competing in the Australian Open boys’ and girls’ singles events.

This includes Hayden Jones, a 17-year-old talent from the Gold Coast, and Giselle Guillen, who was crowned Australia’s 16/u national girls’ singles champion at Melbourne Park last month.
