Australian Open Record Book

This thread will explore records related to the Australian Open.

Complete results for the Australian Championships from 1922 to 2015 may be found at: https://www.tennisforum.com/108-grand...lian-open.html

This is the first in a series of record books for each of the four Grand slams. The eventual plan to to add a combined a fifth record book for the combined slams.

Please don't hesitate to suggest new records, questions , or suggestions. This is very much a work in progress!

Enjoy
