Australian Open free live stream: How to watch Nadal, Djokovic, Williams and co for free

The Australian Open is here as tennis’ leading stars compete for the first Grand Slam of the year in Melbourne. Express Sport is on hand with all the live stream information, including how to watch the action for free.

The Australian Open begins in Melbourne on February 8 and runs until February 21. Upon arrival in Australia, players had to complete a mandatory 14-day isolation period. Novak Djokovic returns to defend his men’s title, with Sofia Kenin defending her crown in the women’s tournament.

Rafael Nadal will also be in action as he chases his 21st Grand Slam, a feat that would see him overtake Roger Federer in the all-time list.

Serena Williams, who will turn 40 this year, still has her eye on a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title.

A reduced crowd of 30,000 will be permitted for the first eight days of the tournament, split equally between day and night sessions.

This will then be cut down to 25,000 from the quarter-final stage, half the average attendance of previous years.

Victorian Minister for Sport Martin Pakula said: “Over the 14 days, it means we will have up to 390,000 people here at Melbourne Park, about 50% of the average over the past few years.

“Rod Laver Arena will have incredible atmosphere, not that different to the atmosphere we’ve seen at all the Opens in the years past.

“It will not be the same… but it will be the most significant international event with crowds that the world has seen in many, many months.”

Rafael Nadal coy over Tiger Woods help as injury ‘not under control’ at Australian Open

Published

on

Rafael Nadal has not revealed if he will seek advice from Tiger Woods on his back injury.

Rafael Nadal has refused to confirm if he has spoken to Tiger Woods regarding his back injury. Nadal is still suffering with the injury which forced him to withdraw from the ATP Cup matches against Alex de Minaur and Stefanos Tsitsipas last week. The Spaniard has made it through to the third round of the Australian Open though after beating Michael Mmoh in straight sets on Thursday.

 

 

After the win over Mmoh, Nadal was asked if he would be talking to Woods for advice on the issue.

But the 34-year-old was not giving anything away in his press conference.

 

“If I am talking to him, it’s something between him and me, and that’s it,” Nadal said.

“Sorry for that. I can’t say private conversations here.”

Nadal gave a worrying update on his condition, saying it is “not under control”.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion says he will continue to search for solutions to aid the issue.

“No, not under control, honestly,” he added. “No, I am going to keep doing the things that I can.

Nadal will face Brit Cameron Norrie in the third round on Saturday. Norrie overcame Roman Safiullin in four sets in the second round.

The South Africa-born star says he is looking forward to the challenge.

“Sweet. For someone like me, I don’t think about the draw but I saw yesterday he was next to me,” Norrie said when told he would face Nadal.

“I’ve never played him before so it will be a great match, a great experience. I can’t wait to show him what I’ve got.”

‘When there are Federer, Nadal, Djokovic with that determination…’, says expert

Published

on

Sometimes everything can change in a few hours. What seemed like a failed and unfortunate Australian campaign for world number one Novak Djokovic, has evolved over the shifts into a veritable manifestation of technical skills and mental strength by the Serbian, capable of annihilating Medvedev in the final and to interrupt the streak of consecutive victories of the Russian that had begun at the master thousand in Paris-Bercy with a caesura worthy of an executioner.

Yes, because the one in Melbourne was a tournament which, even before confirming Nole’s tennis superiority on those fields, rewarded and sublimated the resilience of the Serb, his mentality. In the period of his tennis resurrection, the Serb – who is about a year younger than Rafael Nadal and nearly six years younger than Roger Federer – benefited from their decline in performance to gnaw his own disadvantage in terms of Big Titles.

Freestar
To understand how much, just think that from July three years ago to today, the Spaniard has won seven tournaments (3 Majors and 3 Masters 1000) and the Davis Cup, while the Swiss has raised five cups to the sky (the most important of which is the Masters 1000 in Miami 2019, the other four titles are ATP 500) and grabbed three finals.

We will see how much these three legends of our sport will still want to win: however, their greatness has long since been immeasurable and no statistics will be able to enclose and order it. Pepe Imaz recently claimed that World No.

1 Novak Djokovic has done a lot of work on his inner self over the last few years, which has helped him tremendously on the professional front as well.

Imaz on the GOAT debate
“Novak Djokovic has spent years working on himself, his interior, understanding that when one is better inside, everything he does, he does it with more harmony, and (does it) better at the end of the day,” Pepe Imaz stated.

Pepe Imaz went on to explain that the work Novak Djokovic has done has helped him over the last year in particular, which has been a difficult one for the entire world. “In this difficult year that we have all lived, Novak Djokovic has become even more aware of the importance of what is the human being, the family and prioritizing things,” Imaz said.

“I think that has helped him. The calm that you get through the result, that does not depend on you, you can have it today and not tomorrow,” he went on. “The intrinsic calm is more solid and goes within you, that is the one you have to nurture.”

During the interview, Pepe Imaz also touched upon Novak Djokovic’s quest to break the record for most Grand Slams in men’s tennis. The Serb’s Australian Open title marked his 18th Major, taking him to within two of the all-time record which is jointly held by rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

“Novak Djokovic’s desire and goal at a professional and tennis level is to achieve the maximum possible Grand Slams,” Imaz said. “He has it in his sights, and he has a lot of determination. But when there are 3 people with that determination, it is not easy,” he added.

“Rafa and Novak are people with impressive mental strength. It will be nice to see what happens year after year.”

I don’t know what my plans are. I don’t think there is a limit or a maximum. I don’t mean that we have a plan.

I’m not going to quit is the best way to put it. I still have a lot to do on the court, so I’ll still focus on all of that.”
