Welcome to the Australian Open - the first Grand Slam of Season 7! #1 Andreas Seppi has dominated so far, winning both Brisbane and Sydney. He will be the massive favourite here in Melbourne.

#2 Del Potro should also be a huge favourite for the title after reaching the Brisbane final and Sydney semifinal, whereas #3 Tipsarevic will look to build on his runner-up finish last week in Sydney.

Others such as Verdasco and Nadal could do well here, or we could have a big surprise!

Newcomer to the tour, Lleyton Hewitt, will be keen to get off to a good start in front of her home crowd.

Huge congratulations to Lleyton Hewitt who wins the first ever Grand Slam on the mens side of the OWTT Tour. He was an unknown quantity coming in here having missed the warm-up events but he played fantastic tennis all week, spurred on by the home crowd. He caused the upset of the tournament in the semifinals by knocking out the #1 seed Andreas Seppi, to hand him his first loss of the season. Hewitt will go straight in at #2 on the new rankings. Great tournament for Wawrinka though, who just came up against a better opponent today. He will see his ranking jump up to #3 when they are released!
