The different types of matches at the Australian Open
The Australian Open is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and the first one of the year. It is held at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The tournament is played on hard courts and takes place over two weeks in late January or early February.
The Australian Open has nine different types of matches: singles, doubles, mixed doubles, junior’s singles and doubles, wheelchair singles and doubles, legends’ singles and doubles, and invitational doubles.
Singles matches are the most common type of match at the Australian Open. They are played between two players who compete against each other to see who can win the most sets. A set is won by winning six games by a margin of two games or more. If the score reaches 6-6, then a tie-break is played to determine who wins the set. The first player to win three sets wins the match.
Doubles matches are similar to singles matches, but they are played between two teams of two players each. One player from each team serves alternately during the course of a game, and points are only given when both players on a team win the point. As with singles matches, sets are won by winning six games by a margin of two games or more, and if the score reaches 6-6 then a tie-break is played to determine who wins the set.
